In the soccer scene, Coach's line "Yeah, there's no texting in soccer, okay? I mean, there's running and jumping, eye contact, laughing, there's even crying. There's no texting" is a clear homage to Tom Hanks' famous line "There's no crying in baseball" in A League of Their Own (1992). See more »

A perfect Mother's Day gift if you hate your mother
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.
