Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Moms' Night Out is a faith-based comedy about three stay-at-home moms who get away for a night on the town, only to have their plans dashed by unforeseen obstacles. Although there's virtually no language (aside from a couple of insults like "tramp") or sex (just a couple of brief marital kisses), the movie isn't really meant for younger viewers, who won't get the marital/domestic humor or the more mature themes about identity crises and maternal breakdowns. There's also some drinking (and a couple of characters who appear drunk or stoned) and punching/pushing/shoving. Although the trailers don't necessarily make it clear, Moms' Night Out contains overtly evangelical Christian messages and themes.
A couple of marital kisses and references to a new pregnancy. A mother makes it clear that her teenage daughter may not wear revealing clothes to go out with a boy.
A police officer accidentally tasers a woman. A man punches another man in the nose and is later head-butted by a different man. A father and son are both injured and taken to the hospital, where the father slams his own dislocated shoulder against a wall to snap it back into place. A woman pushes and shoves a man out of anger and frustration. A man is hit with pepper spray in the eyes.
Insults like "tramp," "pathetic," and "leech on society."
Positive messages about the importance of motherhood -- and also about taking time for self care and finding fulfillment on multiple fronts. But the movie's reliance on traditional gender roles related to parenting may not resonate with all viewers.
Several Sony Vaio computers, a Toyota Sienna minivan, and Groupon are prominently featured, as is a biker's Harley tattoo (and motorcycle). Allyson has a Vera Bradley bag.

A couple of characters appear drunk or stoned. A recovering alcoholic (who's never seen) is said to have left in search for a drink, so characters set off to look for her at a bar. At a restaurant, adults are seen with wine glasses on their tables. At a bowling alley, a waitress carries a tray of beer bottles, and a pastor's wife says she can't be seen around alcohol.
