Did You Know?


"Paula Sands Live" was a real television show which began in 1993 and aired in Iowa on KWQC-TV6 (the same network which appears in on a memo header in the film). In reality, the series followed a more traditional morning show type of format, not the sensationalistic 'Ricki Lake'-like program that's portrayed in the film. See more »


The film begins with Mommy on death row in an Iowa prison. Iowa abolished the death penalty in 1965. See more »

Killer Mommy Says What?
23 May 2006 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

If the first "Mommy" film wasn't bad enough, the sequel "Mommy's Day" is...just the same. Just as absurd, just as try-hard and just as cheap. Although, it looks like the director went and bought himself a new handi-cam, as the quality is a tad superior to the first film.

But really, although it was a nice idea over all, no one really seems like they wanted to participate in this film. Rachel Lemieux's Jessica Ann has turned into a right little brat, Brinke Stevens' Beth is still as spineless as she was in the first film (though Brinke is a good actress, she just looked rather bored here) and Patty McCormack's Mommy is as insane as ever - or is she? Seriously though, this crazed Mommy manages to convince a couple of incompetent security staff to let her have her hands free when she is going to be given her life-ending injection - what's with that? A year later, Mommy is on some experimental new mood controlling drug, yet all these strange murders begin to happen, and of course Mommy is at it again - or is she??? Poor Marian Wald has a great scene reprising her role from the first film, though that's all she gets to do. Sarah Jane Miller also from the first film returns playing the sister of her original now deceased character, and is once again one of th main reasons for watching the film, she's a riot. Paul Peterson is okay as Paul Conway's, Beth's scheming husband, and Paula Sands is rather good playing herself, a supposedly famous talk show host. Interesting.

Unless you have some dire compulsion to watch poor-quality films, or were so obsessed with the first film, stay away from this one, you won't get anything out of it except a few unprovoked laughs.
