And my absolute favorite review at Fandango… “Moms’ Night Out is a movie unicorn – something we hope exists, and yet finding one is very, very rare. Most grown women become moms, so how can it be that Moms’ Night Out – a comedy about the lives of good moms – is one of a kind?”
The premiere of Moms’ Night Out was amazing! See photo gallery here…
I was a judge at the Highbridge Film Festival and also hosted a special screening of Moms’ Night Out at my alma mater. It was one of the most fun screenings I attended — great audience. Lots of talented students with films of their own in the fest. Thanks for the fun!
I had a great time with the ladies from Burbank Mom giving some local prize winners a pre-screening of Moms’ Night Out.
Here’s a little sneak peek at what is coming up next from me… “Films of Faith” at Chicago’s Courier News/Sun Times
