Momma's Man Summary

Home > Movies > M > Momma's Man > Summary

Mikey, a young husband and father, stops off at his parents' loft during a business trip to New York and finds himself emotionally unable to leave. Unsure of his own motivations, he makes up excuses about why he's staying--his flight is delayed; his flight is canceled--but while his doting mother is more than happy to enable his procrastination, his father grows suspicious of his son's change of plans. Ignoring their concern, Mikey moves back into his old room. He immerses himself in childhood memorabilia, dodges his wife's panicked voicemails, and even attempts to resurrect old neighborhood buddies (at least one as hair-raisingly adrift as he). And as the days go on, Mikey becomes more and more entrenched in his adolescent sanctuary. But this young father realizes that he must choose between life as it is and life as it was.
