Last month my teenage daughter Rebecca and I attended a private screening of this funny new movie and after party with director Salomé Breziner, former Disney star Jason Dolley and other members of the cast and crew. 

My daughter, Jason & I at the screening,
What an entertaining and fun night out this was watching this made in California film featuring scenes shot at Venice Beach which is a favorite hangout of our family. Neither of us could stop laughing about the wacky mom in the movie that makes garden variety helicopter moms not really look that bad in comparison. And best of all was that my daughter got to meet and talk with young and handsome Jason after the show while I got to chat with real-life mom and director Salomé Breziner who admitted to being a bit of a helicopter mom herself. Actually in this day and age I think most of us mothers are helicopter moms of varying degrees, aren't we?

Here's a brand new making of clip from the Prom scene...

About Helicopter Mom
Even with good intentions and an abundance of love, parents can sometimes become just a little bit smothering. Maggie (Nia Vardalos) takes the helicopter mom persona to the extreme when she decides that she would not only accept her son Lloyd (Jason Dolley) as gay, she would encourage it. In fact, Maggie becomes so convinced that Lloyd is indeed gay that she "outs" him to his entire high school. 

Like any good "helicopter mom" Maggie hovers over every aspect of her son's life. She takes control of his social life, sets him up on dates with boys whom she has approved, and files for a gay student college scholarship. There's just one wrench in her grand plans: Lloyd doesn't even know whether he's gay or not - and he's just asked a cute girl to prom played by Skyler Samuels (Scream Queens).  In the end, will Maggie be willing to accept her son for who he is-or just who she thinks he is?
