In a suburban community, moms and dads, one after the other, mysteriously feel the irresistible impulse to attack and kill their own offspring.
It's dumb as Hell and probably only got created to facilitate Nic Cage meeting his freakout quota and also what was that ending? But shit, I've had way worse times with a movie. Probably less cathartic to someone who actually likes children or has a healthy relationship with their parents, but for me and mine? _Mom and Dad_ weren't half bad. _Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
The movie presents a fun and interesting idea of parents trying to kill their kids and reminded me of the excellent Masters of Horror episode 'The Screwfly Solution'. Well, it was a fun idea until the movie just ended with absolutely no resolution at all. No proper ending, no answers, nothing at all. Just the credits half way through the story. I felt like I'd just wasted the last 80 or so minutes of my life. I can't recommend half a movie and I'll give it half a score. 2.5 out of 5. Don't waste your time.
I am seriously no longer watching any more films with Nic Cage in them. Between this and his other recent release, "Looking Glass," I have absolutely had it with the crappiest of storylines, some of which may have had potential but have wound up having less than a D-grade quality to them. Honestly people, don't waste your time watching this movie which is totally devoid of any entertainment value.
