Sandy is the mother of two boys and she’s happily divorced until she learns her ex-husband has married a much younger woman. Sisters Jesse and Gabi get an unexpected surprise visit from their mother and father. They have lied to them about their personal lives. Miranda doesn’t have children and she focuses on her career on a television-shopping network. Kristin is a new mother to a daughter but she’s not sure about getting married. Her boyfriend would really like for them to marry. Bradley has two daughters but his wife was in the military and she passed away last year. He wants to pretend Mother’s Day doesn’t exist.
This movie isn’t very good!! Maybe if it didn’t have the plethora of famous stars it could’ve been better? A store window model may have conveniently and cheaply acted as the stiff Miranda character Julia Roberts is playing? Jennifer Aniston is surrounded by constant chaos and it’s irritating plus annoying? Jesse and Gabi get caught in a BIG lie? How did they expect to get away with this?? The story with Kristin and her boyfriend plus the story with Jason Sudeikis and his daughters are better. 2* (I didn’t like this movie)
