From the very beginning, I was annoyed. The kids were out of control. The mom was obviously exasperated. Yet, she had time to "blog" to her 3 reviewers? She reminded me of those weak minded moms who just wallow in self pity instead of picking themselves up and moving on to try to make things better. Now, I am no longer a SAHM (stay at home mom). I was one 18 years ago, very briefly.
I understand the chaos, the tired days, sleepless nights, the "no breaks". Not only was I a YOUNG SAHM, I am an Army wife. Back then, I was a "single parent" 6 months out of the year. My husband was always deploying somewhere with the A. Co. 84th Engineering Battalion. They were constantly on missions to build things in places like Kwajalein and Mongolia.
To see these moms so desperate for a break annoyed me. Everyone has a choice. You have a choice to sit there and cry in the middle of the room on the floor. Or you can get up, ask for help, and pull yourself back together again. You're allowed your breakdowns. You're allowed your shitty moments. But to feel that way everyday that for just one night its no holds barred, is ridiculous. I know, it's just a movie.
I saw some reviews on redbox that said those giving the movie bad ratings are probably NOT SAHM's. That's what compelled me to write this blog. Correct, I am not a SAHM....anymore. The movie could have been way funnier. It wasn't. Every funny scene (not even LOL ones) is in the trailer. In fact, I did not laugh out loud once and I am one to be easily amused.
I should've known as soon as I saw a few actors from the movie Courageous, this would have some religious undertones to it. There was. So if you choose to watch this, you have been warned.
Thank god I had a coupon from redbox so I didn't have to pay full price for this movie. I watch a lot of movies and this has been the very worst one I've seen yet. This one had me kicking rocks for wasting 90 minutes of my day. Don't do it unless you can get the movie for free and have absolutely nothing else to watch.
