    Marlon Wayans effortlessly oozes likability and it really carries the movie through it's repetitive nature. The premise is fun and there are some good moments, but they're never enough to warrant recommending as more-than-okay movie.

    Mom's Night Out, Bad Moms and now Fun Mom Dinner; how do we stop this "moms needing a wild break from being moms" thing from becoming it's own genre? All of these movies are carbon copies of one another and we deserve better mom stories.
