Damn, does Keaton look young in this, or what?


It's hard to believe this movie is already 30 years old. But jeez, just look at Michael Keaton: he looks like a kid just out of high school!

I agree. Aside from the scenes where Jack has the beard, Keaton does look very young in Mr. Mom. I believe he was only about 31 or 32 during filming but could've passed for still being in his late 20s.

What's weird is that I was only two years old when this was released, and now I am three years older than he was when he filmed the movie. Still a damn good film though. I loved it as a child, and I love it now.

So I'm a year younger than you 

Same here. I was seven years old in 1983 so I loved this movie as a kid growing up. I wanted to live in that house with Jack and Caroline as my parents. :) NOW as an adult I still want to live in that house and be married to Jack! lol I love this movie.

He looked the age he was, in his early 30s, but maybe that's just me 

I say the same thing when I watch Running Scared with Billy Crystal, he looks so young just like Keaton does in this. Talk about looking young watch Garr in her Star Trek episode in the 60's. Holy baby face Batman.
