Do You Need A "MOM'S NIGHT OUT"?: A Local Giveaway

Over the last several months there have been a number of fantastic Bible-inspired and Inspirational Family movies released in main-stream movie theaters. From Son Of God to Heaven Is For Real to God's Not Dead, it has been an amazing thing to see how modern movies are meeting people where they are, in whatever age and stage they find themselves, and see how God can reach them through movies. 

With Mother's Day coming up in just a few short days, the perfect movie releases tomorrow, May 9, 2014





Culver City, CA – Jan. 28, 2014 – With a laugh-packed mix of big-screen, small-screen and music stars, Patricia Heaton and her husband, David Hunt have executive-produced MOMS’ NIGHT OUT, a new kind of family comedy in theaters May 9, 2014–just in time for Mother’s Day.

From TriStar Pictures, distributors of SOUL SURFER and COURAGEOUS, MOMS’ NIGHT OUT has early audiences raving about its laugh-out-loud portrayal of the chaos of parenting. With its PG rating this clean comedy will be a hit with families everywhere.  

Heaton is one of America’s top female comedic actresses and the well-known star of Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle, two of the most popular television comedies of all time. She joins Sarah Drew, (Grey’s Anatomy), Sean Astin (LORD OF THE RINGS and RUDY), and platinum-selling country recording artist Trace Adkins (THE LINCOLN LAWYER) in a story both hilarious and endearing for its spot-on view on parenting and real-life family relationships. 

In the story, Allyson (Sarah Drew) and her friends long for a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and talk–a long-overdue “moms’ night out.” But to indulge in high heels, adult conversation, and not having to cut anyone else’s meat, their husbands will need to watch the kids for a few hours. What could go wrong? 

"Every mom and dad in Americawhether they have toddlers, tweens or teensis going to love this movie,” Heaton said. “It's a hilarious family-friendly celebration of the trials and triumphs of parentinga joyous affirmation of the world's hardest but most important job."
Drew loves the layered storylines–a family comedy several times over. “And then it’s a full-on love story about two people who already know each other,” she said. “Every mom knows that juggling act.  And every audience that sees it says, “That’s my life!”

Co-writer/director Jon Erwin says the best humor begins at home. “My brother, Andy, and I love being dads, and everything in this movie happened to us . . . just last week!”

MOMS’ NIGHT OUT is a Kevin Downes Production of an Erwin Brothers Film.  MOMS' NIGHT OUT is directed by The Erwin Brothers, and produced by Kevin Downes in association with Four Boys Films and Pure Flix Entertainment.  MOMS’ NIGHT OUT also features David Hunt (24), Andrea Logan White (REVELATION ROAD), Robert Amaya (COURAGEOUS), Abbie Cobb (NCIS: LA), Harry Shum, Jr. (Glee) and Alex Kendrick (COURAGEOUS).

Written by Andrea Nasfell and Jon Erwin, MOMS’ NIGHT OUT was filmed in Birmingham, Ala., and is being distributed by AFFIRM Films and Provident Films.  MOMS’ NIGHT OUT is rated PG for mild thematic elements and some action.

  1. A good Mom's Night Out is when I know my children are well cared for, and anything to do with my friends. .. Either my best friend (hubby) or my girl friends.

  2. A great mom's night out is when I don't have to cook and no one is yelling mom 20 times in 30 seconds. I can just relax and have adult conversations without being interrupted.
