Easy-going made-for-TV version of Mr. Mom
16 January 2004 | by aromatic-2See all my reviews

In the early 80's, the Reaganites were making much of the decay of family values and problems caused by the women's movement and affirmative action. Hollywood's play on these angles was one of muted amusement. Of the bland comedies made on the subject matter during this period, "He's Fired, She's Hired" is probably blander than most and rather typical of the genre. The chemistry between old TV-vets Valentine and Rogers is funny and, at times, surprisingly hot. Howard E. Rollins as a good supporting turn as an executive. Painless, unchallenging, and thoroughly unoriginal fare, and certainly more fun as a time capsule than "That '80's Show."
