Mr. Mom ()

directed by
featuring Michael Keaton, Teri Garr, Frederick Koehler, Taliesin Jaffe, Brittany White

Jack Butler (Michael Keaton) is a Detroit automobile engineer unjustly fired by his boss. Jack's wife Caroline (Teri Garr) is compelled to get a job to make ends meet, and is soon hired on as an advertising executive in a firm run by the shifty Ron Richardson (Martin Mull). This leaves Jack at home doing the housework and taking care of the kids, which he discovers is a lot more complicated than he ever imagined. Moving from breadwinner to househusband doesn't do much for his self-esteem, and he bides his time playing poker for coupons with a gaggle of neighborhood housewifes and pondering infidelity with dedicated homewrecker Joan (Ann Jillian). Among Keaton's fish-out-of-water bits: trying to maneuver a shopping cart with the inevitable wobbly wheels; and imagining a soap opera/film-noir episode in which he gives in to Joan's advances, only to be found out by Caroline.

Comedic gifts of Michael Keaton

by docwolf on Dec 17, 2009

Michael Keaton demonstrates that a man can run the household, with hilarious results as he learns how to tame appliances, deal with repairmen and lustful women, and relate to his wife and children in a new way. Men will cheer as he learns to multi-task, while the ladies will enjoy how he comes to appreciate what a housewife really goes through each day. A clever subplot pits Terri Garr against sly Martin Mull, and adds more humor to the story.

I got this to replace a damaged one. The story itself is pretty predictable and I didn't enjoy it much. Maybe more of a chick flick?
