Storyline

Follows the lives of different mothers on Mother's Day. Sandy (Aniston) is happily divorced until she learns that her ex-husband eloped with a much younger woman. Now she must learn to deal with big changes in her life as her two boys now have a stepmom. Sisters Jesse (Hudson) and Gabi (Chalke) get an unexpected surprise from their mother, who is not happy to find out Gabi is a lesbian and Jesse is married to a man of color. Miranda (Roberts) has no kids and is focusing on her career. Kristin (Robertson) is enjoying life as a new mother but feels pressure from her boyfriend to get married. Bradley (Sudeikis) is trying hard to be the best parent for his two girls since their mom passed away last year, but he wants to pretend that Mother's Day doesn't exist.

to call it average would be over-selling
3 June 2016 | by dilpreet kaurSee all my reviews

don't get me wrong, i GET the movie is supposed to be a light, popcorn movie..your average clichéd chickflick...and i love them....somedays you just want a silly corny cheesy movie to put a smile on your face...

the problems is that it fails at even that...it is not a romantic comedy...it does not explore the parents-kid relationship beyond the whole "oh im a man i cant say tampon" cliché...it is not about friendship....i mean what was the point of even making this movie...

i love interconnected romcom movies...but this is just ..pointless...i have no other words to describe it..

and the only thing that was more horrible than julia roberts wig was the direction.
