Quotes

Allyson: I'm a failure. I have failed again. That's all I do. I had a plan. I was gonna help myself and help my friends unplug and have fun, and then Bridget happened, so then I thought I could fix that, too, and instead... I can't. I can't get in front of it. No matter how hard I try, no matter how much I give, I'm just... I'm not enough.
Bones: For who?

Perfect Mother's Day Fun Embedded with Deep Truth about Motherhood
9 May 2014 | by kris-127-901192See all my reviews

This movie is refreshingly wholesome and since I had my 17 year old daughter with me, it was nice not to worry about embarrassing scenes. I thought it was a girls movie, and it would be perfect for a girl's night out, but it was also a movie that would be awesome for a date night if you have young kids. It was funny, and quirky, but it also had moments of deep truth about what it is like to have those "mommie moments" when you just feel like a total out of control mess. It addresses the sense of failure moms with young kids and teenagers often have, and you walk out a little bit renewed. Dad's will gain better understanding of what it is like to be a mom. All of these cute life lessons are wrapped around goofy humor that is a lot of fun. Trace Adkins as a big, burly biker guy was adorable. This is a perfect Mother's Day movie that is totally appropriate for kids too.
