Moms’ Night Out is this week’s second-biggest, per screen, release

ATLANTA, GA (May 13, 2014) – MOMS’ NIGHT OUT, the Sarah Drew/Sean Astin/Patricia Heaton/Trace Adkins team-up, was this week’s second-biggest, per-screen, new release at the box office. For Mother’s Day 2014 — for maybe the first time ever — the hot gift was . . . a movie ticket. Starting the Friday before Mother’s Day, families filled theaters for MOMS’ NIGHT OUT, a wholesome PG standout in a field of the summer’s 15 R-rated comedies, and crowds rose higher on word of mouth.

Exit polls echo the audience reactions: 82 percent of moviegoers (the average is 60 percent) say, yes, they’d definitely recommend MOMS’ NIGHT OUT. A million-plus people, meanwhile, are talking about it on Facebook. Among females aged 35-49, MOMS’ NIGHT OUT received an A- CinemaScore.

“Hollywood is overdue to make movies on a double bottom line,” co-writer and director Jon Erwin said. “While MOMS’ NIGHT OUT entertains entire families, it’s proving that content can build up families and come out financially profitable.”

“MOMS’ NIGHT OUT is funny, frisky, fast-moving and filled with first-class performances,” says Michael Medved, nationally syndicated talk radio host, SRN. “It’s also a surprisingly wise and moving film about the joys and nightmares of parenthood.”

“I alternated between snort-laughing out loud and soft, silly sobs while watching this larger than life portrait of the fun, craziness, and beauty of the vocation of motherhood,” says Lisa Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com and author of The Handbook for Catholic Moms. “The film entertains, but also enlightens, on the true value of every mom’s work and worth. A great film for the whole family!”

Starring Sarah Drew (Grey’s Anatomy), Sean Astin (THE LORD OF THE RINGS), two-time Emmy Award® winner Patricia Heaton (The Middle, Everybody Loves Raymond), and country music superstar Trace Adkins (LINCOLN LAWYER), Rotten Tomatoes moviegoers gave MOMS’ NIGHT OUT an 85 percent positive response.

MOMS' NIGHT OUT is directed by The Erwin Brothers, and produced by Kevin Downes in association with Four Boys Films and Pure Flix Entertainment. MOMS’ NIGHT OUT also features David Hunt (24), Andrea Logan White (REVELATION ROAD), Robert Amaya (COURAGEOUS), Abbie Cobb (NCIS: LA), Harry Shum, Jr. (Glee), Kevin Downes (COURAGEOUS) and Alex Kendrick (COURAGEOUS).

Written by Andrea Nasfell and Jon Erwin, MOMS’ NIGHT OUT was filmed in Birmingham, Ala., and is being distributed by TriStar Pictures, AFFIRM Films, and Provident Films. MOMS’ NIGHT OUT is rated PG for mild thematic elements and some action.
