My Mom’s New Boyfriend centers around how both the life of a woman and her son change in a span of just a few years. Henry Durand (Colin Hanks) eventually joins the FBI and becomes shocked when he does not recognize his mother Martha Durand (Meg Ryan) who completely changed on both the outside as well as the inside once she lost a significant amount of weight. With her thinner body and increased self-confidence, Martha Duran decides to now call herself Marty and has an improved outlook on life. Marty (Meg Ryan) is enjoying considerable good luck in good fortune in her love life via attracting multiple suitors (including an Italian chef and a young college student) since losing weight. Marty is even enjoying an auspicious/affluent lifestyle in her financial life due to shrewd investments she made with her money in the stock market. Both her son Henry Durand and his fiancée Emily Lott (Selma Blair) are fascinated by Marty’s new outlook. However, Henry Durand becomes concerned for his mother once Tommy Lucero (Antonio Banderas) enters her life. Both Marty and Tommy Lucero mutually fall in love with each other, but Marty’s son Henry does have reason to be concerned for his mother. One scriptwriting element that I enjoy about the film My Mom’s New Boyfriend is that it capture’s a character’s metamorphosis as she gains a thinner body and a different outlook on life (which is a big deal to me because movies featuring women who have successfully lost weight are rare for understandable reasons around body costumes, makeup, screenwriting elements etc.). I also enjoyed how the scriptwriting in My Mom’s New Boyfriend captured how the characters in Marty’s life acted in regards to her weight loss (Marty’s son Henry, Henry’s fiancée Emily, and Marty’s boyfriend Tommy upon seeing some of her photos before she lost the weight and manifested her thin body). My Mom’s New Boyfriend is a movie also suitable for those who enjoy comedy films that take a humor type of spin on the FBI/CIA.
