All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and fun - a long-needed moms' night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation, and food not served in a bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours ... what could go wrong?Written by
In one scene when they're trying to catch the parakeet, it's resting on a branch just outside the diner. It was originally planned that they would try to sneak up on it to catch it. But it unexpectedly flew at Kevin and landed on his shoulder after he dropped to the ground. They had wranglers training the bird, but it was never supposed to do this. In the audio commentary, Kevin Downes said "I had no idea the bird was going to come after me......I'm going down to protect my eye cause I think the bird is coming at my eye". They decided that this was funnier than trying to sneak up on it, so they left it this way. See more »
During the car chase, there are clearly skid marks on the pavement from previous takes. See more »
Okay, So here's the Plan... We take them inside, get their hand stamped and they can't get out. Like Shawshank Redemption.
I love it!

First off - I CANNOT believe that this movie rated lower than NATURAL BORN KILLERS (one of the few movies where I actually walked out of the theater). I think the critics took this movie WAY too seriously and obviously were turned off by a feel-good comedy with Christian overtones. Granted this movie is no MASTERPIECE, but it doesn't pretend to be one. It's a good CLEAN FAMILY comedy that will obviously appeal to moms most. My kids loved it and while it took some time to get rolling it builds steam to a hilarious ending which takes time to let the several elements that were building come to a resolution. As per the typical stereotype the fathers are often portrayed as inept for comedic effect. When I started watching this movie I jokingly felt like I had to turn my "man card" in to watch it. Thankfully that changed with the appearance of "Bones" (Trace Adkins). With him came the bikers, tattoo parlors, etc. Seriously, his character was played well and worked to balance out the hectic pace of the latter half of the movie. Definitely a good date or family movie. It has enough elements to please most any member of the family and keep them laughing until the very end!
