The Mothers-in-Law: Jerry’s Night Out with the Boys is decent comedy with a somewhat familiar plot that a lot of people can relate to. That is one thing about this comedy series. Though it can be zany, a lot of the issues and basic elements are things that everyday people understand and can identify with.
In this case, it’s all about newlywed Jerry Buell (Jerry Fogel) wanting to play cards with his friends one night. At first, wife Suzie (Deborah Walley) is perfectly fine with the idea. The problem begins when Suzie tells her mother and mother-in-law about Jerry’s plans.
This begins the women versus the men agenda. The women convince Suzie that Jerry’s place is with her and not out with the boys, as they call it. She puts her foot down.
Then Jerry commiserates with his father and father-in-law who convince him that he needs to stand up to Suzie and have his man time.
Tears and arguments ensue, as can be expected, and a lot of it is part of the comedic fun.
What I don’t like is the way that Walley cries. I’ve noticed it before. She’s just not a good cryer. In fact, it’s just annoying to hear her wail.
