Product Description

FBI Field Agent Henry Durand (Colin Hanks) has a problem. It seems his mother Marty (Meg Ryan) has developed a dating life of her own in the three years he's been on assignment. Now, Henry finds himself fending off midnight serenades from lovelorn Italian chefs and watching helplessly as Marty hops on the back of a college dropout's motorcycle, all of which is enough to drive him into therapy. But things get more serious when Marty begins dating Tommy (Antonio Banderas), the FBI's number one suspect in an international art theft ring. Henry soon has to witness more of his mom's love life than he ever wanted when the FBI orders him to spy on her to catch a thief!

Amazon.com

The premise is delicious: A young, by-the-book FBI agent (Colin Hanks) is assigned his new highest-profile assignment yet--spying on his own mother (Meg Ryan). My Mom's New Boyfriend is a romantic comedy long on both romance and comedy, and gives Ryan her first film in a long time where she can take the laughs and run with them. Viewers will remember, with a grateful sigh, why she long reigned as the queen of American romantic comedy. Ryan plays Marty, devoted mom, who last saw her son, Henry (Hanks), three years ago when she was unhealthy, coarse, and overweight (looking like she might have borrowed Monica's fat suit from Friends). When Henry returns home from his secret op, fiancée in tow (Selma Blair), Marty's still coarse, but has become a babe with a healthy libido. ("Oh Henry, lighten up!" is Marty's oft-repeated refrain.) Henry is horrified, but his girlfriend, Emily, is entranced. In fact, some of the film's best chemistry is between these two gifted actresses, as they spark and feed off each other's energy. When Marty takes up with the sultry Tommy (Antonio Banderas), Henry gets the ultimate "TMI" assignment: spying on his mom and her honey, suspected in an art-theft ring. Hanks squirms convincingly, Banderas smolders, and Ryan truly sparkles, giving her wacky side free rein. If the plot has a few potholes, it doesn't matter, since the cast is so stellar and has such magnetism. By sheer determination and talent, the ensemble delivers laughs and poignancy, by turns. Extras include deleted scenes (and a few memorable bloopers), and a behind-the-scenes featurette on filming on location in northern Louisiana. --A.T. Hurley

A few chuckles, a little bit of plot, and some star power. I wish there'd been more Selma Blair on screen. I like her but ... her part could have been played by anybody.

It's kind of scary when Meg Ryan smiles (her face is a disaster, but her lips are freaky) but other than that she looks good and can still pull off her Megness like no one else. There are a couple scenes that are pure Meg. When Antonio is fawning over how hot she looks, she responds "Yeah! I know!" Only Meg could do that and not make everybody sick. In another scene she gets mad at him and throws a fit, punching and screaming into the air. Antonio just watches until its over and is speechless (so was I) but for a genuinely soft-spoken "Wow." It was nice to see those scenes. Meg's still got it and Antonia doesn't seem like he's going to lose it any time soon.

It was a pleasant surprise to see how good Antonio looks. Maybe I just haven't seen him in a while. I've always liked him in comedies. If you like Antonio, you'll love the scene where he ends up with each hand in a glass of water (or white wine?). Antonio could charm the socks off ... I dunno, somebody who really needed their socks.

That's what these kinds of movies are all about, right? How good do our stars look? How much we enjoy seeing our favorite celebrities prance about ... acting.

There's a light twist at the end so everybody can be happy. Upon reflection it explained a few unanswered hmmmm's from previous scenes but I didn't see it coming because I wasn't expecting it; I didn't need it and I had forgotten about those scenes because this isn't a movie you keep score on. That's cool

If you're looking to watch a movie which is thought provoking, full of depth and believable, then this isn't one you want to watch. If, like me, you're looking to watch a light-hearted, fun movie, then this may be your cup of tea. I've already watched it countless times for the sheer fun and enjoyment I believe it was intended to elicit.

Format: DVD
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Marty Durand (Meg Ryan) goes from fat to phat while her son Henry (Colin Hanks) is away learning spy stuff with the FBI
2. Henry returns to the nest, to find Mom ruling the roost with an adoring flock
3. He isn't pleased when she's knocked off her feet by charming smoothie Tommy (Antonio Banderas)
4. He's even more unhappy with his next FBI assignment
5. Romantic comedy turns into unbelievably bad caper

Meg Ryan rarely shows the sparkle of her previous starring roles, while Colin Hanks is basically boring. Selma Blair is so underutilized you could say she's unused, and Antonio Banderas is .... well, just Banderas.

This is intended to be a frothy light comedy caper, but instead of being bubbly and entertaining, it sinks like a lead weight. Even if you suspend disbelief and forgive the plot, there's just not enough to make it worth your while.

Seeing that I like both Meg Ryan and Selma Blair, I'll give this one an extra star, and recommend that you go watch some of their other movies instead.

If you are looking for a deeply emotional drama that parallels "Gone with the Wind", my friend, you will not find it here. This is a very entertaining romantic comedy with a good share of mystery and action. It also has a touch of slap stick and funny cops with a measure of twists. I promise you will have a solid night or entertainment and a 4 or 5 star winner. Don't try to figure everything out, just sit back and enjoy a modern day 3 stooges with class.

I saw a preview of this movie when I was watching another DVD and I had to see it. I like Meg Ryan and I miss seeing her in films nowadays. What's wrong with Hollywood not utilizing a great comedic actor like her? I've heard several female actors say Hollywood loses interest in them when they age but come on, this is ridiculous. A woman really starts getting interesting and comes into her own beauty after 40 in my opinion. Okay, I'm off my soapbox. This comedy made me laugh out loud and I could really identify with Meg's character who went from over two hundred pounds to fit and healthy and really started living her life fully. Antonio Banderas is wonderful as always as her new boyfriend who may or may not be an international art thief. All of the supporting cast was fabulous too. Enrico, the Italian chef whom Marti (Meg's character) broke up with was hilarious as the spurned lover who just can't let go.

I just watched the movie. I was looking for something light and fun. This movie more than achieved that. Colin Hanks did a pretty good job at holding his own. Meg Ryan was awesome as usual. She really looked great. If you're looking for something deep---this is not it but there were some funny moments which are ingredients for good movie making. Let us not forget Antonio Bandaras: Handsome and charming as ever. It would have been nice if Selma Blair had a slightly larger role but she was good.

"My Mom's New Boyfriend"; this no award film, but it is funny and suspense all in one. All the acting was good and M. Ryan and A. Banderas were wonderfully funny together. I recommend this film to anyone that wants action, drama and some romance. This is both a male and female movie.
