My Mom's New Boyfriend (2008)

(Also Known As) Homeland Security
Directed by George Gallo
Starred Antonio Banderas, Meg Ryan, Colin Hanks, Selma Blair, Trevor Morgan, Keith David...
2008, United States & Germany, English.






The title already gives away the story of the movie, right? :) And it also gives away that it is a comedy movie. Let me give away a little bit more. What if you worked for FBI and bureau asked you to spy on your mom, because they suspect her new boy-friend to be a member of high profile thieves gang? 
Also known as 'Homeland Security' in US, the movie brings Antonio Banderas and Meg Ryan together as well as Selma Blair and Colin Hanks. An interesting note about the cast is Meg Ryan is playing Colin Hanks`s mom. who is Tom Hank`s son, wo co-starred with Meg Ryan in 3 movies :)

It is a light caper, and although there are important names in the acting cast, the chemistry is missing between characters in my opinion. That affects fun level of the movie too , of course.

Not much to say.  Comedy, caper, Meg Ryan, Banderasm feel like watching? Go ahead. You might enjoy it.
