There once was a time where the concept of the husband staying home to raise the children while the wife works out of the office was extremely rare. While the role reversal is serious, it remains a comic event that always ends up with a reference to Mr. Mom. As a former-Mr. Mom, there were many times where Michael Keaton was my spirit animal while struggling with a situation. He came up with strange solutions that somewhat worked. Mr. Mom: Collector’s Edition will be part of the Shout Select series in September. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:
MR. MOM [COLLECTOR’S EDITION]
GETS SHOUT! FACTORY’S
SHOUT SELECT TREATMENT
SEPTEMBER 5, 2017
“Take it easy on daddy. Remember, he’s a rookie.”
Los Angeles, CA – Go find your woobie, put on your favorite flannel shirt, and crack open a can of chili, because Mr. Mom [Collector’s Edition] is coming to Blu-ray from Shout! Factory on September 5 (or September 6, whatever it takes), and is available for pre-order now through Shout! and Amazon.
Featuring an all-new cover illustration, brand-new interviews with producer Lauren Shuler Donner and co-stars Ann Jillian, Frederick Koehler, Taliesin Jaffe and Miriam Flynn; as well as the original theatrical trailer, the beloved classic starring Michael Keaton, Teri Garr, Martin Mull, Ann Jillian, and Christopher Lloyd, is getting the Shout Select treatment.
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 [Collector’s Edition] is a standout release in Shout Select, a line of movie releases shining a spotlight on special films, including Blake Edwards’ The Pink Panther Film Collection Starring Peter Sellers, Colors [Collector’s Edition], Bill & Ted’s Most Excellent Collection, Red Dawn [Collector’s Edition], The Handmaid’s Tale, and many more.
