A good B list suspense film that ends as expected!
9 May 2015 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Had never really heard of this film just watched it and I must say that "Mother's Boys" was an okay film of suspense and drama and blended with some hot sex appeal from veteran scream queen actress Jamie Lee Curtis. Anyway the story is compelling and interesting as Jamie Lee is Jude Madigan a woman who all of a sudden has left her family that includes her husband(Peter Gallagher)and boys, and in the meantime husband and sons have built a new life with a new female friend. Years later as Jude returns as a woman scorned hell have no fury like the wrath as a dangerous obsession to get back the former life has all in danger. As Jude is just to provocative, blunt, outspoken, and crazy for anyone's own good! This little thriller is seductive and filled with suspense drama from start to finish and it was nice to see Jamie Lee so sexy in a B type movie as she strut's her stuff so well!
