Actress Stacey Dash took to her Twitter account to demolish critics of Christian-friendly movie Moms’ Night Out who mocked stay-at-home mothers. On Monday Dash took those critics to task on her Twitter account. Dash was just warming up when she wrote: “If you want to see sexism, read some of the ‘critics’ ‘reviews’ of #MomsNightOut! They insult every stay-at-home mom in the US #Twits.”
A little bit later on her feed she really let them have it:
“Female critics of @MNOmovie are VERY pro-choice. Unless of course a woman chooses to be a homemaker. Then, of course, she’s a moron.”
YoungCon.com’s Joshua Riddle did a great job of summarizing some of the most obnoxious criticism of the new movie in his May 13 blog:
Liberal critics are hating this movie starring the conservative and pro-life actress Patricia Heaton. Variety’s Justin Chang says the movie is “basically a shrill feature-length sitcom for the faith-based family-values crowd, if nowhere near as good as that sounds.”
The Globe and Mail’s Kate Taylor piled on as well:
Mainly, you have to wonder why [main character] Allyson doesn’t just hire a nanny, find a job and get out of the house. Ah, but this is a Christian movie, and once it stops pelting an audience with comic incident, it begins preaching. Through the crazy night, Allyson comes to see that she should just relax and enjoy motherhood. “I am right where I need to be and God has given me everything I need to be a mom,” she concludes after a little sermon from a heavily tattooed biker who tells her Jesus loves her as she is.
In other words, Allyson will be just fine if she sticks to her conventional role.
