Did You Know?


This is the fourth film by Garry Marshall that has featured Larry Miller, Julia Roberts, and Hector Elizondo. The others are: Valentine's Day (2010), Pretty Woman (1990), and Runaway Bride (1999). See more »


Miranda says she was 16 years old when she gave birth to Kristin, so their age difference should be 16 years. Character ages are not specified in the film, but Julia Roberts is 23 years older than Britt Robertson, which is almost a 50% discrepancy. It's common for an actor's age not to match his/her character's age. Sometimes actors are younger that the actors playing their characters' children. See more »


Jesse: [to her son, who's peeing in front of the guests] Tanner, nononono!
Kristin: Oh!
Jesse: It's like the fourth time he's done this.

A perfect Mother's Day gift if you hate your mother
27 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Well, this was worse than I had expected. A movie about Mother's Day should invoke feelings of love and gratitude towards mothers and show a strong bond. Sadly, this movie did neither or rather the attempt towards showcasing that was pretty horrible.

The movie was completely incoherent with a bunch of different stories thrown in the mix with neither regard for any logic nor an effort to make the audience feel anything for the characters. The pace of the movie was haphazard and there was no flow. There were abrupt ending to scenes or the scenes following didn't make any sense.

In addition, the movie makers probably asked each one of the actors (except a couple of them maybe) to showcase the worst acting of their careers. I would recommend completely skipping this train wreck even when it comes out on DVD or Netflix.
