Mr. Mom Blu-ray Details Announced
U.S. label Shout Factory has detailed its upcoming Collector’s Edition of Stan Dragoti’s comedy Mr. Mom(1983), starring Michael Keaton, Teri Garr, Taliesin Jaffe, Martin Mull, and Jeffrey Tambor. The release will arrive on the market on September 5.
Synopsis: While Caroline Butler (Teri Garr, Tootsie) re-enters the workforce and becomes the rising star of her advertising agency, her newly unemployed husband Jack (Michael Keaton, Night Shift) finds himself a new job … as a stay-at-home dad! But if Jack thinks his old career in the automotive industry was tough, he has no idea what’s waiting for him at home: the ins and outs of dropping the kids off at school, soap operas, woobies, babies with chili, a clean-up on aisle seven and a vacuum cleaner named “Jaws.” Not to mention the seedy neighborhood drama!
Inspired, in part, by writer John Hughes’ (Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles) own life lessons as a clueless stay-at-home father, Mr. Mom is sure to have every parent slapping their foreheads with sympathy, as they slap their knees with laughter!
