Any website can list movies with Mom in the title, but I am going to steer you toward movies that will surprise you--they may not be the ones you expect for Mother's Day! Yeah, you could watch Mother's Day--but it is not a good movie--it is a bummer. Go with my list--some of them are a little emotional, but they are good movies that pack a punch that will definitely give you lots to discuss.
The Family Stone with Diane Keaton, Craig T. Nelson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Luke Wilson and lots more. So good...
Steel Magnolias--a CLASSIC!! Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, Darryl Hannah, and of course, Julia Roberts.
Terms of Endearment--bring your tissues--this one packs a wallop, but there is no other mother-daughter story like it. Debra Winger and Shirley MacLaine have an up and down relationship--it also stars Jeff Daniels and Jack Nicholson. Wow.
The Blind Side--I know it has gotten some negative press recently, but I LOVE Sandra Bullock in this one--and Tim MacGraw is fantastic, too.
Postcards from the Edge--Shirley MacLaine plays Debbie Reynolds to Meryl Streep's Carrie Fisher character in this sometimes bumpy ride--but ultimately really good memoir movie.
Last, but not least...
The Sound of Music--how can we forget Maria Von Trapp--she started as their nanny and ended up as their mother, singing them all the way through the Alps and to safety away from the Nazis.
Have a wonderful day with mom--and if you can't be with her--you can both sign onto whatever streaming service you have, and watch a movie together from afar!! Happy Mother's Day!
