Take Me to Your Mother really sounds like it could be boring, doesn't it? A bunch of moms sitting around kibbitzing? Don't we all get enough of that in our daily lives? But it's the personalities that make this somewhat dull premise so enchanting. Rosen is fearless in asking questions: "You really cut your son's meat for him?" she asks incredulously of a self-proclaimed mother to a "mama's boy" in his 20s, who still lives at home. "Did you cut your daughter's meat too?" Rosen inquires, then chortles helplessly at the answer: "No."

Rosen is obviously having great fun getting to know each vibrant, distinct group of women, and is open to wisdom like "cook and your kids will come back forever" or "let other people help you." She's also ready to deflect advice that doesn't work for her, concluding that raising a mama's boy seems like "a lot of work for the mother," and she'd probably have to do a "modified version." But she sure likes the results. "Do you love your mother more than your wife?" she asks a young Italian husband. "Of course!" he answers back. "Oh, that's music to my ears," rhapsodizes Rosen, half-jokingly, but also, half-seriously. If that dichotomy of emotions makes sense to you, Take Me to Your Mother will likewise.
