Fun Mom Dinner is a 2017 comedy directed by Alethea Jones and written by Julie Rudd. The film stars Katie Aselton, Toni Collette, Bridget Everett, and Molly Shannon as four moms who organize a night out in order to escape their daily routine and spend some quality time with each other. The story revolves around the lives of four very different mothers who lead busy and demanding lives. Kate (Aselton) is a stay-at-home mom, Emily (Collette) is a lawyer who is trying to balance her work and family life, Melanie (Everett) is a free-spirited mom who enjoys partying and smoking weed, and Jamie (Shannon) is an overbearing mom who wants everything to be perfect.

Kate and Emily both have children in the same class and the two initially do not get along. One day, their children get into a fight at a school field trip, and the principal insists that they sit down and talk. It is here that they both discover that they have a lot in common and decide to organize a "fun mom dinner" with their friends Melanie and Jamie.

The four mothers arrive at the restaurant, and it is immediately clear that they all have different personalities and approaches to parenting. Jamie insists on ordering expensive wine and food, while Melanie orders a round of shots. Kate and Emily seem to be more reserved and try to avoid causing any trouble.

As the night progresses, the women find themselves getting drunk and engaging in all sorts of inappropriate behavior. They end up crashing a high school reunion party, getting into a fight, and even stealing a car. Throughout all of this, they gradually begin to open up to each other and learn about each other's struggles as mothers and individuals.

As the night comes to a close, the women manage to make it back to their respective homes, but not before realizing how much they needed a night out and some time away from their daily routines.

The film is a humorous and light-hearted look at the struggles of modern motherhood and the importance of having a support system. The cast delivers excellent performances, with each of the four mothers bringing a unique and distinct personality to the table. The chemistry between the characters is also fantastic, making the film a joy to watch from start to finish.

In addition to its comedic elements, the film also offers some insightful commentary on the challenges that mothers face in juggling their various responsibilities. It tackles issues such as the pressure to be a perfect parent, the need to balance work and family, and the importance of taking time for oneself.

Overall, Fun Mom Dinner is an entertaining and heartwarming film that will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to balance their responsibilities as a parent and an individual. It is a must-watch for anyone looking for a good laugh and a reminder to appreciate the joys of motherhood.

Fun Mom Dinner is a 2017 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.3 and a MetaScore of 46.
