A laugh out loud treat!
11 January 2002 | by Carmo-2See all my reviews

With a title like "Mom P.I." you almost don't need to have seen it to know it's going to be good. In fact, you feel like you've seen it all before... and loved every minute of it! "Mom" is a great character, and don't I wish she was my mum! But, then again, that's exactly why I love it. Great entertainment, a treat for the whole family! Especially those youngsters (although there are bits which may scare the really little ones... perhaps parents should watch in advance to ensure suitability. Don't worry- you'll love watching it more than once. I know I could have watched it a thousand times!). Happy viewing!
