    The TV remake for Walmart's Vudu streaming service of the 1983 Michael Keaton comedy "is a nostalgia play, which is incredible, as I cannot imagine many working moms are nostalgic for the idea that it’s a wacky switcheroo when dad has to take the kids," says Kelly Faircloth. She adds: "Yes, I know Michael Keaton’s character eventually gets the hang of it and they ultimately negotiate an equitable arrangement together; that doesn’t change the fact that the basic joke of the film is 'What if dad... was MOM?'"
