There are only a few days left before the Mother’s Day, as several families have to come to terms with how they’ll be spending the big day. Whether it’s dealing with a new love, a lost love, or no love at all, this Mother’s Day will prove to be one for the romantic comedy ages – and one to be remembered by audiences for decades to come. Sweet, complex, funny and moving – just like moms across the world.
Sandy (Jennifer Aniston) recently divorced from Henry (Timothy Olyphant) fights to maintain her sense of self when her ex remarries a younger woman. Sandy’s unconscious compulsion to compete with the new step-mom leads her to more than her share of bad, but it takes a frightening family crisis for her to finally come to terms with the fact that she’s not just still part of the family – she’s also the glue that keeps them all together.
Life seems good to Miranda Collins (Julia Roberts), but having sacrificed family for career, Miranda’s life is incomplete – and as Mother’s Day approaches, she contemplates having it all, but no one to share it with – except her crazy agent Lance. But Miranda is in for a surprise when the daughter she gave up for adoption when she was teenager comes looking for her.
Jesse (Kate Hudson) loves her husband Russell (Aasif Mandvi) so much that she’s cut her racist mother, Flo, out of her life completely; so much so, that she’s lied to her husband that Flo even exists. So when Jesse’s parents decide to surprise her and Gabi, her lesbian same-sex married sister, for Mother’s Day, it’s Flo and Russell who are in for the biggest surprise of all.
Bradley (Jason Sudeikis) is down in the dumps as Mother’s Day approaches. It will be the first since his wife passed away almost one year ago. With one daughter in grade school, and the other a teenager, Bradley must go-it-alone, raising his girls; a bittersweet, feel-good story as the normally outgoing and gregarious Bradley confronts his loneliness, and tries to make a sense of a Mother’s Day with no mother.
