I'm not usually partial to Hallmark MOWs, but I rather enjoyed Mom's Day Away. It had the pace, cast, quirky banter and heartfelt moments that you look for in a G-rated Rom Com.

The story follows an under appreciated Mom who ends up taking Mother's Day weekend away with her wild child BFF. It follows a very traditional route, but there's some fun scenes at a Spa Resort. Also there's a very kooky open mic set piece.

Is Bonnie Somerville actually singing??? And also, I believe she said "yay", not "gay". Remember... It's Hallmark...

The chemistry between the two girls, Laura and Trish, really kept the movie going. Laura and Trish were actually the only characters I liked. The husband was kind of a drip, and the two kids were boring to watch. Terrible casting on the kids. Redhead, really? Regardless, it was a fun little movie and well shot. It's supposed to be in Los Angeles, but it looked like Canada to me.

Overall, I'd definitely recommend watching MDA. It's a Hallmark movie with a great cast, a fun script and a perfect way to spend a week night.
