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: Can you pass the ketchup, Myrelle?
Myron Stubbs: It's Myron.
Marilyn Cooper: Oh. I kind of like Myrelle better. It reminds me of Gone With the Wind. Normally black movies don't hold my attention, but I liked that one. And I like The Jeffersons.

An OK film, an OK acting...
11 August 2008 | by sweetyboniSee all my reviews

The film was an "OK", but I expected more because of the actors. Yes, Diane Keaton was great, as always, but even though, she didn't touch me so that I could enjoy her acting all the time. I can't comment about Dax Shepard, this is the first time I saw him in a movie, but I guess he was OK. Liv Tyler, come on! She could put a little more effort. But after all she was OK too.

The whole film though... What a mess! I was so bored at times that I wanted to turn into the next charter and still be bored. I certainly expected a lot more, but it's an OK and that is still something we can put on.
