Storyline

What would you do if your mother moved in with you and just wouldn't leave? When NOAH COOPER, 29, is fired from his job as a therapist, he thinks his day can't possibly get worse. When he arrives home his already full house gets even crazier when MARILYN, Noah's overbearing mother arrives with her five dogs in tow needing a place to stay. Comedy ensues as Noah learns to deal with the pressures of finding a job, a wife who desperately wants a baby, and worst of all a mother who won't quit smothering! Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Marilyn Cooper: I'd like to bring the room down a minute and dedicate this next song to my very special son, Noah. He fired me from the best job I ever had, but I never accomplished much in life anyway, so it really doesn't matter if my husband f*@#s another woman. And I murdered a rat. Hit it, Lou.

Some funny moments
3 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The scenario is annoying Mom moves in with son and wife. Expected this to be a bit strained given the subject matter. Actually it was unexpectedly funny in parts. Dax has some good sarcastic lines. Liv Tyler's is pretty but her little girl voice is a bit annoying at times. Diane Keaton is good given a role that could be a bit tiresome. She is very slim and it's nice to see someone who has let herself age naturally. She can play so many roles that others who have had plastic surgery can't.

The writing has some unexpected humor. Don't really see the jokes coming from afar. The funeral scene is quite hilarious. Overall it's okay to watch if you have the time.
