Jack and Caroline Butler are perfectly happy with their roles in life until a layoff makes him a househusband and her a working wife! And while she wrangles with charts, graphs and an all-too-eager-to-be-wrangled boss, he has to contend with their hyper kids, a ravenous vacuum cleaner, an angry washing machine and an oversexed neighbor! From late nights in the boardroom to lonely nights in the bedroom, the biggest challenge for both Jack and Caroline is learning to trust one another with their reversed roles which they'd better do quickly before Mr. Mom becomes Mr. Single Mom!

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"...benefits substantially from Keaton's almost unreasonably charismatic turn as the title character..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Now pretty sexist comedy with Michael Keaton assuming household duties."
‑ Steve Crum,
"A real comedy classic....Keaton's great in this"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"A routine comic plot whipped up into an amenable time-waster by [writer John] Hughes and director Stan Dragoti with maximum efficiency and little imagination."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Even with Erma Bombeck-style domestic humor like Mr. Mom's got in spades, Keaton consistently rises above the mawkish material."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Lame, badly made comedy that wastes its star."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Classic '80s comedy with some minor hanky panky."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"engagingly corny comedy"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Sit-com material, ably done, with Keaton's off-kilter delivery a highlight."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
