The Problem with Mothers!
16 February 2009 | by bigdave11See all my reviews

Poor Max! He has the most embarrassing mother in the world. She loves her son dearly but has the unfortunate habit of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time - usually when Max's friends are present. Max himself does not help as he makes some horrendous errors in trying to impress the girl he fancies. I've just seen this at Berlin Film Festival where it was very well received. The young cast portray the problems of growing up with embarrassing adults very well indeed. The film is helped along by a witty voice-over from Max who pours his little heart out about his worries and fears. Although billed as a children's film it would be enjoyed by viewers of all ages - think junior Woody Allen! The film deserves to be seen by a wider audience. Highly recommended for the young and young at heart
