Mom, me and the two of us is an American comedy by Chris Columbus from 1991 and a remake of the classic Marty of 1955.


Danny Muldoon, a police officer from Chicago, learns Theresa Luna know. Theresa is working in a funeral home. Danny falls in love with Theresa and is worried if his mother Rose Theresa will accept.

Nick Acropolis, a neighbor of Rose, woos Danny's mother. She treats him first repellent, then Nick and Rose come closer.

Only when solving Danny and rose from their holding in mutual dependence behavior pattern, they can place their shared apartment and turn to their new partners.


Lexicon of international film: "Idea lots, boring comedy". The actor starring John Candy WOULD ridiculous.

Rita Kempley in the Washington Post (24 May 1991): Candy will assist you as if a romantic role would be uncomfortable to him.

Peter Travers in Rolling Stone: The script WOULD sterile and the comedy so artificial, as if she does not come by human hands. The viewer wonder what Theresa sees Danny.


The Chicago and Niles (Michigan) turned film earned about 21.8 million U.S. dollars into the coffers of the U.S. theaters.
