A morgue attendant is talked into running a brothel at his workplace after a deceased pimp is sent there. However, the pimp's killers don't look too kindly on this new 'business', nor does the morgue's owner.
Four mental patients on a field trip in New York City must save their caring chaperon, who ends up being taken to a hospital in a coma after accidentally witnessing a murder, before the killers can find him and finish the job.
Jack and Caroline are a couple making a decent living when Jack suddenly loses his job. They agree that he should stay at home and look after the house while Caroline works. It's just that he's never done it before, and really doesn't have a clue.Written by

In one scene, Jack's "girlfriends" take him to a male strip show in which the dancers are dressed as astronauts. Jack comments "These aren't the guys from the space shuttle, are they?" When the film was first shown on network television in 1986, the line was removed, presumably because it seemed in poor taste coming so soon after the Challenger disaster. See more »
Warmed over John Hughes & amiable Keaton = family values
MR. MOM (1983) **1/2 Michael Keaton, Teri Garr, Martin Mull, Ann Jillian, Jeffrey Tambor, Christopher Lloyd. Amiable domestic comedy with recently downsized auto engineer nice guy Keaton becoming the household ruler and Garr out to bring home the bacon with sleazy ad exec Mull makes for some chuckles thanks to John Hughes' warm script and silly scenarios.
