Trivia

Julia Roberts wears the same wig she wore in Notting Hill (1999) for a scene about a space movie. In an interview on Ellen: The Ellen DeGeneres Show (2003) in May 2016, Roberts said she was ''recycling''. See more »

Goofs

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 their character's age. Sometimes actors are younger that the actors playing their character's children. See more »

Quotes

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.

The Plot

This disaster follows the lives of different mothers on Mother's Day.

Sandy (Aniston) is happily divorced, until she finds out 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 step-mom. 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) doesn't have any kids and is focusing on her career.

Kristin (Robertson) is enjoying life as a new mother but is feeling 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, however his idea of Mothers Day is pretending it doesn't exist at all.

I really like Garry Marshall and he's be involved in a many good movies and TV shows. Sadly this is not one of them.

The movie is a series of absurd pandering offensive politically correct vignettes. The only group missing was the Asians. There's gays, lesbians, wheelchair blacks, Indians, you name it. OMG! It's absolutely idiotic.

There is really no story line. And for some reason there are several scenes in a comedy club that relate to nothing in the movie! It's really sad that this movie represents the end to Marshalls comedy legacy. He died soon after this was released. Maybe he saw it and realized what a piece o9f garbage this movie was. It sucks. I'd give it a zero if I could.
