Thank Your mom today

Hey, forget Infinity War for one day and spend some time with Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman's movie about the real first avengers...your moms.

Marlo is a mother of 2 with a third on the way who has a young special needs son called "quirky" by the school system.

He's seemingly on the autism spectrum but much like the move's handling of this mental illness and what comes later, "Tully" isn't exactly attuned on the specifics of mental disorders.

No, this is a movie about motherhood, a role Charlize Theron gained 50 pounds to portray accurately, so she's looking at Oscar, and right now she seems like the definite frontrunner.

Marlo seems like she's carrying 10 pounds of stress weight per every physical pound. When she lets her kids break the screen time rule, you know it's just so she can grab precious peace minutes.

Plus there's mental toll. "Tully" does an awesome job of showing a woman who essentially became a sexless caregiver and is now just broken as anything else.

She's told about night nannys, which downside is having a stranger care for your baby, but you get uninterrupted sleep without having to push a finger of whiskey in your kid's mouth so it seems like a winner.

The nanny turns out to be Tully, played by Halt and Catch Fire's Mackenzie Davis. She's nurturing, she cleans the house, she makes you feel special, she makes you want a Tully of your own.

Yes she seems too good to be true, addressing not just the kid's issues but Marlo's as well. It leads to some funny stuff, like a sex therapy three-way.

It's funny but but also makes you think about mom and what she's given up to do what she does, and even with a crutch like Tully, that's a whole lot.
