After a summer full of movies that celebrate the arrested development of their male characters, that titter and wink while grown men behave like teenagers, Momma's Man is a welcome palette cleanser.

Mikey has a wife and baby in California, but when he visits his parents during a business trip to New York, he finds it hard to leave his old room. He rummages through old notebooks, plays his old guitar, visits old friends, and finds one reason after another to delay his return to California.
