In 2014 I wrote a post I titled “Feminism”. The impetus for the post was not my having seen the Mom’s Night Out movie, but some of the negative reviews from feminists. At that point I had not actually seen the movie.
Well, I saw the movie last night and not only are those reviewers wrong, the movie proves that Christians are more than capable of producing high quality comedy. I haven’t laughed so hard and so long in years. Plus, the reviewers completely missed the point. The reviews that incited my earlier post all focused on the desire for a night out, but the real point of the movie was that we can have everything we want and still feel like we don’t measure up to everyone’s expectations, including our own. Sometimes we just need a break from our “everyday” to be reminded that we are more than what we “do”. Everyone, Christian and non-Christian alike, should be able to relate to that feeling, including men, by the way. My husband enjoyed the movie as much as I did.
So if you haven’t seen the movie yet, rent it and watch it. It doesn’t matter if you’re a stay-at-home mom, a career woman with or without kids, a dad with a family, or a man on his own. You won’t be disappointed.
