Whatever It Takes: A Look Back At Mr. Mom (2017)

*** (out of 4)

Producer Lauren Shuler Donner is joined by cast members Miriam Flynn, Ann Jillian, Taliesin Jaffe and Frederick Koehler as they discuss the making of the 1983 film MR. MOM. If you're a fan of the film then you'll enjoy this thirty-six minute documentary that has plenty of great behind-the-scenes stories. As I'm sure most were, I was disappointed that Michael Keaton and Teri Garr weren't interviewed but I'm sure they both had something else they were doing. Still, once you get pass that disappointment there's actually some pretty good stuff here including the producer talking about how the film took off and how John Hughes was brought on to write the screenplay. From here we get into the casting of the picture and learn that Keaton was actually on board pretty early in the development. Some of the best stories come from Jaffe and Koehler who played the two sons in the picture. They share some great stories that they remember on the set including several good ones with Keaton.
