The great cast of Mama's Boy--Jon Heder, Diane Keaton, Jeff Daniels, the always-awesome Anna Faris--help lift this indie gem from its semi-predictable setup. Heder plays Jeffrey, a 29-year-old dweeb who still lives at home with his mom, Jan (Diane Keaton). Widowed at a young age, Keaton has clung to her only son, but not as much as he's clung to her since the death of his dad. The two have settled into a routine--game night, special menus--like, well, an old married couple. Until Jan is swept off her feet by motivational speaker Mert Rosenbloom (Jeff Daniels), who preaches the ground-breaking theory of "Positivity" ("...which goes back thousands of years--Jesus was really a big practitioner"). Then Jeffrey acts out--in a way more appropriate to a 3-year-old than a grown man. Jan and Mert have a touching, believable chemistry, and Jeffrey's tantrums are cringeworthy but hilarious. "You can't win back my affection with Manwich!" he shrieks at his appeasing mom. Does Jeffrey get his own chance to grow up and move on? Quicker than you can say "enter oddball Goth girl." Anna Faris plays Nora, an aspiring singer-songwriter with rather a limited repertoire; every song is about corporate America eating our souls ("I'm calling my first album 'Bed, Bath and Bulls--t'!"). Not surprisingly, she also has a heart of gold. As she works her quirky charm on Jeffrey, everyone in the film gets a chance to blossom. --A.T. Hurley

Format:DVD
The '07 release `Mama's Boy' delivers another fine, though surprisingly reserved performance by Joh Heder as Jeffrey, the insecure, hypochondriac, stay-at-home 29 year old who finds his world threatened when his Mother (Diane Keaton) decides to re-enter the dating scene. When new boyfriend Mert (Jeff Daniels), a life-affirming motivational speaker moves in Jeffrey's world begins to fall apart. Will he accept the newcomer into the family home with open arms or perceive him as a challenger and usurper of his Mother's affection?

There's not a lot of surprises here but it's still an entertaining watch with a soundtrack infused with `The Smiths' and `Morrissey' that work perfectly with the on-screen action. Anna Faris is also quite good as Nora, a Courtney Love(ish) songstress who falls for the hapless Mama's boy caus Jeffery to re-evaluate his sheltered existence even further.

If you're a big Jon Heder fan you'll definitely wan to had this one to your DVD collection, but thoroughly enjoyable even if you're not.

My Rating: -3 1/2 Stars-.

4.0 out of 5 stars I am a Mama's Boy...sort of June 19, 2008
Format:DVD
This is a great movie, filled with good humor, a great cast, and smooth writing. John Heder perfects the role of being a overbearing Mama's Boy who just won't quit. Jeff Daniels is in his element reminiscent of his role in Dumb and Dumber, he pulls this off with expertise. Diane Keaton is excellent she seems to be in every simple but offbeat comedies that truly capture her bubbly personality. Along with the quirky Ana Farris who is more angry in this role than others before it. She is the final touch to a simple yet hilarious romp. This idea has been done before but this is a very well written comedy that doesn't disappoint. Don't listen to reviewers who just nick pick about everything. Rent or purchase it is really good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad... just FORMULAIC June 8, 2008
Format:DVD
Ho hum.

It's too bad, because this really is a pretty good movie, but unfortunately, the movie plays out with the same little formula and by the numbers movie making plot path that we've seen hundreds/thousands of times.

Jon Heder plays 29-year old Jeffrey Manus, a well... (see title) Mama's Boy. When Mom decides it's time to start dating again, it puts a wrinkle in Jeffrey's otherwise comfortable pampered homelife. Then of course when the dating becomes serious, Jeffrey's life is turned upside down.

There really is no way to give away spoilers because we've seen these movies playout thousands of times. Sure, maybe it's a different premise, but the plot points are so much on point, you could put a stop watch to them. Boy runs into problem, boy plots to defeat problem, boy messes things up, boy realizes the airs in his ways, boy corrects problem in about 5 minutes of film time and rides off into the sunset.

It's not a bust out funny film, although I did a couple of times, and it's not a bad film. Anna Faris was cute. Jeff Daniels was funny. Jon Heder was well cast. Diane Keaton was solid as usual. Yet, unfortunately for all of them, Mama's Boy will be forgotten because it didn't have the guts to tell a story as unique as the characters they portrayed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I agree with Brandon. February 4, 2009
By Ron
Format:DVD
This was a great movie. All the principal actors had great chemistry with eachother. The dialogue was right on target--especially Jon Heder and Anna Farris's. Jon Heder has never been funnier. I found his character to be very original. I liked how he came across as being a spoiled, outcast of society, who said no to drugs. I also liked Anna Farris's character--especially when she tells Heder that she wants to be independent and is not going to let someone like Heder drag her down. All this coming from a new wave punker! This was an insightful and funny film about learning to grow up--even if you're a rebel who happens to be a mama's boy.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Unlikely Pleasure June 6, 2009
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
This is an unlikely hilarious movie that you would never expect to be cute, but it's not half-bad.

Eccentric and nerdy Jeffrey Mannus (Jon Heder) is 29 years old and lives with his mother, Jan. He is perfectly fine with the arrangement, but Jefferey's world is turned around when Jan meets Mert Rosenbloom (Jeff Daniels), a motivational speaker, and they begin to date. What follows is a tug-of-war between Met and Jefferey, as Mert wants Jefferey out of the house, and Jefferey sees Met as nothing than dirt, and tries to bring Mert and his mom apart.

Meanwhile, he befriends a pretty and sweet girl at the local diner, Nora, who comes to have a soft spot for him. Back at home, the humorous war continues until the point that Mert and Jeffery get into a fist-fight. Jan breaks up with Mert in a flurry, and Jefferey is pleased: until he gets kicked out, too.

Living on the streets, Jefferey goes to find Nora, but she disowns him, calling him a jerk for never offering her any help when she was always so kind to him. Jefferey realizes all the mistakes he's made and goes to get Mert and Jan back together; after achieving this, he goes to find Nora, and they exchanged a kiss in the middle of the road.

This is an unlikely movie that really touched me. It is incredibly funny, and though it has its share of inappropriate stuff, you can look over that to enjoy this movie. Jon Herd gives a comical performance as the nerdy know-it-all mama's boy who had no point in life until Nora came along, and I found myself thoroughly enjoying this film. You should rent it first to see if you really like it, but this is a rare, goofy movie that you should see once of twice in your lifetime.
