Movie Info: “Mother’s Day” is the latest star studded ensemble comedy from director Garry Marshall (“Pretty Woman,” “Valentine’s Day”). Bringing together Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Julia Roberts along with Jason Sudeikis, it’s a celebration of mothers everywhere. This big-hearted comedy invites us all to enjoy the laughter, tears and love as three generations come together in the week leading up to Mother’s Day.
Mars Review: The overall aura of Mother’s Day is kind of … welcoming, making it a sweet Mother’s Day gift. Marshall uses the same formula of blending together multiple story lines for this light comedy, but this time has better defined the plot and embraced the emotion. Aniston does the heavy lifting, carrying Mother’s Day on her sturdy shoulders whether with slapstick, superbly paced comic repartee or anxiously dealing with the very real threat of another woman horning in on her relationship with her sons.
