After a recent trip with my two young sons, I was more than ready for a night out with the moms to see the movie screening of Moms’ Night Out. I could completely relate to the main character, Allyson — a stressed-out mom trying to do it all and be it all to her family. Allyson is played by Sarah Drew, best known for her role as Dr. April Kepner on Grey’s Anatomy. (Yes, there are more doctors than just McSteamy and McDreamy).
The movie starts with a mother of young children trying to start a blog, feeling like she had nothing to say, feeling unhappy with herself and her inability to cope with the craziness of three small kids and a traveling husband and her own perfectionist tendencies that kept her awake at night (sound familiar?!)
Infused with Christian overtones of hope and wisdom that come from unlikely sources (such as the tattoo parlor owner played by Trace Adkins), the movie is definitely not a slow one as hilarity ensues when Allyson joins a friend and the pastor’s wife (played by Patricia Heaton) for a much needed night out that turns out anything but boring.
Moms’ Night Out officially arrives in theaters May 9, a perfect time to take a friend or your mom out for a fun night out at the movies.
