Mother’s Day is this weekend and if you’re wise, you’ll at least remember to call her. She gets a little cranky if you forget.
Perhaps you were planning on celebrating by taking Mom to the movies. After all, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Julia Roberts are starring in a film called Mother’s Day — seems like the perfect fit…right? Well, if you’re to believe the reviews following this weekend – you may want to stick to a card or something.
1. “Director Garry Marshall is a menace. He keeps killing holidays with all-star comedies in which a laugh would die of loneliness. Rolling Stone
2. “The best scene in Mother’s Day comes at the very end. It’s one of the bloopers thrown into the tail credits, and it features Julia Roberts sitting at a table in a restaurant, looking distant as a train rolls by.” – The Ex-Press
3. “Marshall’s worst film, making dreck like “Raising Helen,” “The Other Sister,” and “Georgia Rule” feel like summer vacations next to this appallingly idiotic and insulting picture.” – Blu-Ray.com
4. “‘Mother’s Day’ is a total mess, but what’s truly offensive is that they didn’t even try to make this cynical, post-Sunday brunch cash grab even remotely watchable. Your mom deserves so much better this Mother’s Day.” – The Chicago Tribune
