Storyline

Henry is a young FBI agent. During a three-year absence from his home in Shreveport, his mother Marty loses more than 100 pounds, looks great, and to Henry's embarrassment, has become a party animal. Within a day of Henry's returning home with his fiancée, Emily, who's an FBI profiler, Marty meets Tommy, a suave foreigner. He's posing as a consultant, but he's an international art thief, in town to steal "Mother and Son," a Bernini sculpture. Henry is detailed to head a team keeping his mom's new boyfriend under surveillance. Love, law enforcement, and filial devotion are set to collide. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Simply average
21 November 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

My Mom's New Boyfriend is one of that movies which is very difficult to write about because their elements are not bad but they are not particularly good either so,there is not too much to talk about.My Mom's New Boyfriend is an average comedy and I had a good time watching it...but the experience is completely forgettable.The actors are good on their roles.Meg Ryan,Antonio Banderas,Colin Hanks and Selma Blair bring decent performances,although they do not have too much to do.As I said at the beginning of this commentary,there is not much to talk about this movie.My Mom's New Boyfriend is a mediocre but entertaining comedy.I would recommend to watch it on DVD if there are not any other options.
