Mainly, you have to wonder why Allyson doesn’t

Mainly, you have to wonder why Allyson doesn’t just hire a nanny, find a job and get out of the house. Ah, but this is a Christian movie, and once it stops pelting an audience with comic incident, it begins preaching. Through the crazy night, Allyson comes to see that she should just relax and enjoy motherhood. “I am right where I need to be and God has given me everything I need to be a mom,” she concludes after a little sermon from a heavily tattooed biker who tells her Jesus loves her as she is.

In other words, Allyson will be just fine if she sticks to her conventional role.

You don’t expect rom-coms to question heterosexual pair-bonding or action movies to denounce violence, but still, this is a pretty limited social palette that the Erwins are painting with, despite a few patronizing nods to single-motherhood. What is actually offensive (and unrealistic) is how men are portrayed, as inevitably incompetent when it comes to caring for young children. To be fair, there is some softening at the end of the film as Allyson recognizes that the man-child Kevin does know how to babysit, but overall, the gender roles in this film are set in cement.
