I went to see this film with my mum and sister, it was such a nice girly night out.

Sandy (Jennifer Aniston) is a stressed-out, single mom who learns that her ex-husband is marrying a younger woman. Her friend Jesse (Kate Hudson) is a fitness freak who doesn’t tell her parents that she has a family. Bradley is a widower (Jason Sudeikis) who’s trying to raise two daughters on his own, while Miranda (Julia Roberts) is too busy with her career to worry about having children. When their respective problems Mother’s Day takes on a special meaning.
This movie is along similar lines of New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day. Though I think I preferred this movie over the others, the links were a little less tedious between all the characters and the plot lines were more coherant.
I liked the fact that there were some big stars in this film (Kate Hudson, Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts) along with some lesser known (Jack Whitehall and Britt Roberston). All the storie lines were really funny and it was such a sweet story.
Of course there were problems but realistically this is supposed to be a fun family film. The movie kept me laughing the entire way through so I won’t complain.
I have missed watching the classic romcoms that were everywhere between 1990-2010, it’s kind of died out and been replaced with movies that are far more explicit.
Jack Whitehall was definitely perfection in this film. His character was a struggling comedian and is loved watching his mini set in the movie.
Overall, this is a great film to see, especially with your mum.
This movie wasn’t rock your socks off amazing, but its was still really good.
