Perfect for Mother’s Day, the family comedy Mom’s Night Out tells the story of Allyson (Sarah Drew), a wife and mother who loves her family, but also longs for a peaceful, grown-up evening out with her friends. Leaving her husband (Sean Astin) to watch the kids for the evening suddenly turns into chaos, in a true celebration of the beautiful mess known as parenting.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Sean Astin talked about being a part of a good, clean comedy that families can see together, why movies with a component of faith are so appealing to audiences, that he loves physical comedy and hopes he gets to do more, and how such a chaotic story had a surprisingly un-chaotic set. He also talked about what attracted him to the upcoming FX series The Strain, adapted from Guillermo del Toro’s novel and premiering this summer, and how, even though there’s been talk of a sequel to The Goonies since 1986, he’d be game to do it, if it ever happened. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
