We all have our different ideas on how mothers day should be celebrated. Even if some don’t have their mothers with them anymore, mothers day is something that should be remembered. But what if you’re divorced and your dad have a new awesome cool wife? How would you go around it? We are all different and do Mother’s Day differently. That is the point of Mothers Day, it should be celebrated differently.
And different is what these characters of the movie Mothers Day is doing. We have 4 different families in this film. So I’m going to break it down to you in 4 different shorts and how they flow together. So this might get long and little confusing but keep reading, I’ll try and make it short and sweet.
- Sandy is a divorce mother with two sons, the father is the one who takes the boys to fun things and she’s the one who does the boring. One day he comes and says he’s married, to Tina. The boys like her but Sandy isn’t sure. She gets very annoyed. And trying to get a new job with… Miranda. A Tv personality.
- Jesse and her sister Gabi lives door to door to each other. They moved from their parents because Gabi is into ladies and Jesse married someone their mother didn’t approve and was slighly racist to (he’s from India) so you can imagine this mess when their parents decide to drop in as a surprise.
- Zack & Kristin who have been together for 5 years, have a gorgoues little girl together and Zack is trying to make it as a comedian. Both work in a bar, live in small place but all Kristin wants is to find her birth mom.
- Bradley is a single dad with two daughters. They lost their wife/mom in the war and ever since they been heartbroken and Bradley is maybe not refusing but don’t want to move on.His oldest is a teen so all those emotions and first boyfriend is here and he cannot handle it.
So here’s how it goes together. Sandy met Bradley in Supermarket when he was buying tampons for his oldest and she also had a breakdown in the parking lot so ever since Bradley been avoiding Sandy. Jesse knows Kristin from mothers group where she also meets Sandy quickly and they talk about getting married and how scared Kristin is to getting married. Their stories flows together in one way or another but we see these people trying to keep it together for the kids sake but in the end: DISASTER!
Mother’s Day is a funny & very star filled movie. It had it’s funny moments and where you just wanted to close your eyes and not look. In the end it’s worth watching because you will find yourselves recognize yourself in one or two characters.
