Mom's Night Out 2014

     Allyson is married to Sean and they are the parents of three children.  Sean travels a lot and Allyson gets very stressed out at home because she is has a controlling personality.  She gets up really early on Mother’s Day to clean her house.  She goes back to bed and her children get up to make breakfast for her.  They have also really messed up the clean house!!  This gets Allyson all stressed out!!  She plans a mom’s night out with her two friends Sondra and Izzy.  Things start going wrong when their restaurant reservation is for the next Saturday.  Allyson’s sister-in-law meets up with them.  She found out her boyfriend took their son to a tattoo parlor so he could go on a date with someone else!!
     I thought this movie was very STRESSFUL and I couldn’t make it to the end.  I didn’t like the scenes with the ineptness of the men taking care of the children.  The cleaning, getting her kids ready to go places and everything else about Allyson’s life  made me very STRESSED!!  It seems impossible that so many things could go wrong in such a short time in one person’s life and on one night out with friends?  1 ½* (I really didn’t like this movie)
