'Mother’s Day' Movie Review: A starry bundle of sweet-sob drama
A star studded, big hearted rom-com and a collection of intertwined stories that celebrates love, happiness and patch ups on Mother’s Day. A movie that is poorly edited, yet the emotionalism keeps you connected. Here’s what we think….

Star Cast: Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, Jason Sudeikis

Director: Garry Marshall

Screenplay: Tom Hines, Anya Kochoff, Lily Hollander

Producer: Basil Iwanyk, Alex Proyas

Claps for: Cast and their acting

Slaps for: Direction & sloppy editing

Popcorn Refill: Interval

What’s New: Nothing

Story: 4 stories that celebrates three generations of Mothers - Sandy with two sons, Jennifer Aniston, a divorced mother, Miranda (Julia Roberts) a successful writer who is unmarried and had to give up her only child, Jesse (Kate Hudson) who is in bad terms with her mother and Bradley (Jason Sudeikis) who recently lost his wife and has to bring up two daughters. This compassionate movie invokes joy, tears and laughter and invites us to celebrate the week ahead of Mothers day.

Performances: Even though the storyline is predictable, the actors have a strong footing in the movie. Although we feel Julia has been wasted and Jason seemed to be reading of cheat cards, Jennifer and Kate were just so natural. The other casting has been well thought of unlike the dialogues and the bewildered direction.

Direction: Like the previous two ventures of Gary Marshall’s - New Years Eve and Valentine’s Day, this rom-com also is centred around a holiday. The movie has an appealing ensemble star-cast with too much going on yet nothing interesting for any of them to do. But if you look closely discarding the bland direction, the movie shows the various versions of motherhood and the effect a mother has in each one’s lives - be it in her absence or presence.

Combo-on-offer: Jennifer + Julia + Kate and some popcorn ! *winks*

Verdict: We give the movie CLAPS for the choice of actors and the sentimentality but the poor execution drives it down road. But heck, let’s cut the slack and celebrate your Mom
