If you are a huge Toni Collette, Molly Shannon, Katie Aselton, or Bridget Everett fan, you need to make sure you go and see Fun Mom Dinner (already available for download)! Below I included my Interview with Toni Collette, Molly Shannon, Katie Aselton, and Bridget Everett. Thank you to Momentum Pictures for hosting me.
When interviewing Toni Collette, Molly Shannon, Katie Aselton, and Bridget Everett it is for sure that these women were hilarious, professional, and very kind! They filmed this movie in just 21 days! Isn’t that crazy! During the interview,, there were tons of laughs and even some singing, maybe a cuss word or two or three came out. These are things that might happen when you get together with your girlfriends. You feel comfortable, you make each other laugh, and there is always good conversation. Our interview paralleled the movie pretty well!
Our interview covered a lot of mom life about being tired, dealing with other school moms, and attempting to have a good date with your baby daddy. 🙂
Fun Mom Dinner is now in select theaters and On Demand, find it on iTunes.
Fun Mom Dinner is not a movie for kids! It is a movie made for moms that are okay with watching a rated R movie and enjoy laughing!
The film marks director Alethea Jones and writer Julie Rudd’s first feature and it premiered at Sundance earlier this year! It has mostly a female cast and crew and was written as a love letter to moms from Julie Rudd! During my trip to New York, I also interviewed these ladies along with Naomi Scott!

Which mom were you?
KATIE ASELTON (Emily)
Emily is a lawyer turned stay-at-home-mom who is new to town and new to the pre-school community. She feels her marriage to Tom lacks passion and wishes he was more like “Jake Ryan” from Sixteen Candles. Although Emily is good friends with Kate (Toni Collette), she doesn’t have many other mom-friends and is excited at the chance to meet other women at a “fun mom dinner.” As the night progresses, the moms make their way through a restaurant, a Walgreens, a marijuana dispensary, and a karaoke bar, where things get even crazier when Emily meets a charming bartender…
TONI COLLETTE (Kate)
As a mother to four little boys, Kate is “mommed out” by all the play dates, school meetings, and coffee gatherings. She has her own ways to cope with the stresses of motherhood. When Kate’s best friend Emily (Katie Aselton) tricks her into going out for a “fun mom dinner,” she gears up for an uneventful night out with some moms she doesn’t particularly like. But what starts off as an innocent dinner turns into a wild night she will never forget.
BRIDGET EVERETT (Melanie)
Melanie is the volunteer “traffic safety person” at her children’s pre-school. She likes to let loose with a nice scotch (3 fingers, 1 cube). Melanie has never seen eye to eye with Kate (Toni Collette), so when the two end up at the same “fun mom dinner,” tensions run high. As the casual dinner turns into a wild night out, Melanie realizes she and Kate may not be so different after all.
MOLLY SHANNON (Jamie)
Jamie is a recently divorced, single mom who has #sharedcustody of her daughter Lexi. Jamie is beginning to enjoy her alone time and is very active on social media. She has also started to think about dating again. As she joins some other moms for a fun dinner outing, the night soon turns into an unexpected karaoke-singing, joint-smoking, yacht-chasing adventure with new friends.
