Mother's Day is this Sunday and first of all - happy Mother's Day to all the mothers in the world. Garry Marshall's latest movie, "Mother's Day," opened last week. He has directed several memorable films such as "Pretty Woman" and "The Princess Dairies."
As in his previous films, Marshall has put together a star-studded cast that includes Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Jason Sudeikis and Oscar-winner Julia Roberts. The movie follows five individuals and their dealings with motherhood or their own mothers. Sandy (Aniston) is a single mom of two boys dealing with ex husband's recent marriage to a much younger woman. Jesse (Hudson) has not spoken to her mother for years because mom disapproved of Jesse's dating an Indian man, but now Jesse's mom decides to visit. Jesse's sister also is keeping a big secret from their parents. Bradley, a recent widower, is dealing with raising two young daughters and is trying to figure out how to have a Mother's Day. Miranda (Roberts) is a highly successful businesswoman who has no time to be a mother. As the story unfolds they all must face their dilemmas on Mother's Day.
"Mother's Day" has some funny and heartwarming moments that will be enjoyed by any parent.
"Mother's Day" is rated PG-13 with a TRT (Total Running Time) of 1 hour and 56 minutes.
