Mr. Troop Mom is an American 2009 comedy television film directed by William Dear, written by Thomas Ian Griffith and starring George Lopez, Daniela Bobadilla, April Telek, Julia Anderson, Elizabeth Thai, Geoff Gustafson, and Jane Lynch. It tells of Eddie Serrano (Lopez), a widower, and his teenage daughter Naomi. Eddie joins Naomi and her friends on a camping trip, making Eddie the "Team Mom".

The film aired on Nickelodeon and premiered on June 19, 2009; it was released on DVD and Blu-Ray on June 23, 2009.[1][2][3]

Plot[edit]

Eddie Serrano (George Lopez) is a widower with a teenage daughter Naomi (Daniela Bobadilla). A classic workaholic, Eddie has not been there for most of Naomi's big moments. Naomi doesn't appreciate it and is always upset because her father embarrasses Naomi in front of her friends. (for example when in the beginning of the film, he shouted out to Naomi, "Have a good day baby, I love you snuggle bear.") Initially, Eddie never expected the original "Team Mom" would go into labor so early.

Subsequently Eddie substitutes her place for being "Team Mom" for the "Killer Bees", which is Naomi's team in the Spring Action Classic at Camp Hulka's Rock. His business sort-of way of doing things doesn't qualify the standards for his job as the leader for her daughter's team, which doesn't please the camp's director Ms. Hulka (Jane Lynch).

Eventually Eddie begins to learn how to lighten up and go with the flow a little bit more that helps him succeed, not only with his daughter, but also the standards he needs to do to be part of the team. At the end, The Naked Brothers Band perform a concert with their song "If You Can Make It Through The Rain", followed by a fireworks display.

Cast[edit]

The film features a cameo appearance by the musical duo, Nat & Alex Wolff, who portrayed themselves.

Reception[edit]

Though most of the reviews from the critics were mixed, with a critic citing it as "utterly and completely predictable - and charming",[4] the television movie fared well in the ratings, garnering 4 million total viewers on its first airing, and was the number one original basic cable program that night.[5][6]
