For the first half or so of Momma's Man, I wasn't sure I was going to like the film all that much. It is about a guy named Mikey, who, while on a holiday trip to visit his parents in New York, decides not to return home to his wife and infant daughter. Admittedly, my tolerance for watching another "man who can't or won't grow up" film is fairly low, but I'd heard such good things about this film that I decided to stick it out, and I'm glad I did.
Mikey (Matt Boren) goes home to NYC to visit his parents, but when it's time to go, he inexplicably turns around on his way to the airport and returns to his parents' apartment. He tells his folks and his wife that there were issues with his flight, and settles back in, saying he just wants to stay another day, maybe two. And then the days stretch out, and Mikey makes more and more excuses for not going home.
