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>

Awful movie - Fell asleep
13 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

What a crappy movie. Can't understand how Meg Ryan accepted to participate on it.

Haven't seen Meg Ryan and Antonio Banderas in good movies for the past...4 years I think.

Fell asleep 15 minutes after it started. I thought it was going to be funny, a good comedy but it turned out to be excessively dumb. No plot, no script, no sense.

By the way Meg Ryan's makeover went really bad. That angel face is gone, her face is so inexpressive now. The botox doesn't allow her to move her lips anymore. How sad.

Avoid this movie at all cost, it's an awful waste of money and time.
