Just saw this movie the other day after not seeing it since I was a little rugrat.It use to be 1 of my favorites but now It remind's me more of a Sunday comic strip coming to life with the out of control vacuum cleaner,washer & some of the characters.Oh well

It's surprisingly cute. Keaton and Garr are a great husband/wife team, so why was it necessary to throw in possible adultery and strippers, marring this family comedy?

Michael Keaton really made this movie work. Without him, it'd be just an average movie.

Pretty funny, but not as many laughs as I expected

"Jack Butler" (Michael Keaton) just got laid off from his car building job, so his wife (Terri Garr) takes a job as an executive at an ad agency with a major account with a tuna company.

Now, with roles reversed, "Jack" has to stay home, take care of the three kids and become "Mr. Mom."

This movie was a big hit, if I remember correctly. And it is filled with some good laughs, but not a lot. The majority of the laughs come from "Jack" doing things for the first time, like food shopping and trying to multitask chores. Most of the jokes come from physical comedy that Keaton handles pretty nicely. "Caroline" (Garr) has some comedic moments as she is at work, but they are probably light chuckle worthy.

As for the supporting cast, they are not completely developed. They are, however...

2.5/4
