    Hilarious episode! In this episode, Raven has to spend time with her mother but she tries to get out of this by coming up with a reason but who knew she finds her WHOLE FAMILY at the place she wants to spend time with a guy named Ricky!!!! It was pretty funny to see how Raven managed to get lots of invitations from her school mates to hang out during the weekend and how she said no by screaming!!!! Raven wanted to actually watch a movie with Ricky which Eddie happened to be watching the movie with but she then had to watch a movie with her mother instead!! Also, Cory had to spend time with her father as well thanks to Raven and they had to watch a movie with Bunny people?? What the hell is that kind of movie suppose to be?? Even the father had fell asleep during the movie and they went to watch the movie that Eddie and Ricky were watching and boy they enjoyed it!! He even tried to reason by saying of lies that the movie should not be showing as well!! But the main thing is that Raven should have spended time with her mother! I mean come on, Raven had to ask Eddie to watch the movie with her instead and even the mother didn't even know that, instead she kept saying how glad she was Raven watched the movie with her! Luckily she did it in the end at the last part of the episode while Cory and Mr. Baxter suffered in the end because of the romance movie!!! This just shows well spending time with your Mum is not so bad after all!!

    Final rating: 8.0 to 8.5

    Final Grade: Amoreless
  • I think this episode refers to what mothers do to their never-around teenage children in real-life.

    In this episode, Tanya feels as if she's not spending enough time with Raven. So she plans to go somewhere with her on Saturday. Raven is okay with this since she has nothing to do on Saturday, until she finds out Eddie and Ricky are going to the cinema on the same day. So in order to get away from her mother, Raven lies about failing English and having to go to the library all afternoon to study it. So when she goes to the cinema, she finds her entire family there! This episode was really funny and enjoyed it a lot. My favorite parts was when Raven sees her family at the cinema and she says "Hey, family..." LOL! And I also liked when Victor said "I wish someone would get beaten up in this thing." ROTFL! It's too bad Chelsea wasn't in it again, but this episode was not near bad on my rating scale!

    FINAL RATING: B-moreless
  • This would probably be one of the best performances of the first season!

    I totally loved this episode this episode really rocks my world and mind drives me insane I really like the part where Raven inserted herself in Eddie's jacket and Eddie was the one who takes control of Raven's hand and the best part is the tissue her face looks so silly ha ha ha!

  • TRIVIA (9)

    • Raven has five visions in this episode. Three visions are seen while the other two are unseen and described by her. Vision #1: Tanya asking her what she is doing this Saturday. Vision #2: (unseen vision) A student spraying soda in the school hallway. Vision #3: Tanya blowing her nose. Vision #4: (unseen vision) A guy putting his bare feet up behind a woman in the theater. Vision #5: Tanya asking Raven if she got her chocolate covered raisins.

    • During the New Years Eve marathon of 2004, this episode was in the category (and it won) for Worst After School Job, but Raven doesn't actually WORK for the theater.

    • After Raven gave the money for the candy to becky, when she is walking away to the movie, a crumpaled up piece of paper, fell out of Raven's pants.

    • Outside of the movie theater (by the concession stand) there is a cardboard stand-up of a karate guy without a shirt on. The same cardboard stand-up can be found in the Even Stevens episode: Movie Madness.

    • When Tanya and Raven walk into Farewell to Forever the second time, would another showing of the movie really start two minutes after the previous one ended?

    • The ushers never check tickets and Raven and her mom walk into Farewell to Forever the second time without buying tickets.

    • Raven hands the concession stand worker, Becky, her apron and walks off. The camera cuts to her entering the movie audiorium with the apron on. Once inside, Raven can be seen again without the apron.

    • When Raven enters the theatre where Eddie is, you can see that the two people sitting right in front of them are two women but after Ricky comes back and she tries to leave, the two women have moved to their right and instead, there is a couple kissing sitting in their places.

    • In this episode, Raven doesn't even know Ricky, but in The Parties she invites him to her party ant he knows her name. This is because the episodes have been aired out of production order.
