In the park scene towards the end of the movie, Russell's mother arrives in a silver sedan. The vehicle clearly runs along the curb as it comes to a stop, but the very next frame shows her exiting it when it's several yards away from the curb. See more »

This film tells the stories of several mothers who spend Mother's Day in different ways.
"Mother's Day" can easily draw families to the cinema, because of its topic and the number of big stars. I watched it for Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston, but I was rather disappointed by it. These ensemble comedies have so many subplots and so many characters, that none of them are fully developed. As a result, I don't really know the characters well enough to care for any of them.
the Kate Hudson subplot is funny and entertaining enough, providing the comic relief. The Julia Roberts subplot is very disappointing, because it could have been so much better. She could have made a touching announcement on TV, which would have a far greater impact on the viewers. Instead, something else happened on TV which I don't care for at all.
"Mother's Day" had so much potential, but wasted the concept and the talent involved.
