Mama's Boy


Mama's Boy
A 29-year old slacker is still living with his widow mom. She decides she needs a man in her life, and starts dating a motivational speaker. Her son does not like him imposing on 'his' space, nor taking the place of his deceased dad. He ropes in a female friend for help, and while they work on the problem, a funny thing happens: he starts to realise that he's an adult. This film appears to have gone more-or-less straight to DVD overseas.
