More Info:
  • Mick LaSalle

    The overall aura is kind of ... welcoming. It’s impossible to take seriously, but easy to take.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    Perhaps because the bar was set so low, Mother’s Day turns out to be surprisingly watchable.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Brad Wheeler

    Mother’s Day is a concocted market-driven holiday, and so is this M&M’s-obsessed movie – candy for the sweet-toothed among us.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Moira Macdonald

    It’s a lazy movie that fades from memory the instant the credits start to roll; a blandly pretty cog in a studio wheel. Moms deserve better. So do moviegoers.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    An ensemble holiday comedy packed with all the sappy sentimentality and mawkish manipulation that only the old master, Garry Marshall would dare give it.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Nico Lang

    The film’s script is designed to constantly flatter the sensibilities of its target audience, which is a nice enough goal, but it never seems to reflect the way that people actually speak, think, or behave. At best it’s corny, and at its worst it’s actively offensive.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Michael Nordine

    By far the highest concentration of actual humor comes during the blooper reel over the end credits; free of the script’s saccharine constraints, the performers immediately demonstrate their chops.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Jon Frosch

    Mother’s Day is bad from the start, and it doesn't get better.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Mother’s Day, the movie, feels as contrived and inauthentic as the holiday itself.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Director Garry Marshall is a menace. He keeps killing holidays with all-star comedies in which a laugh would die of loneliness.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    May boast a star-studded cast but it’s a spectacular dud on every other level with tonal whiplash, a little casual racism played for jokes and a script seemingly pulled from Hallmark cards rejected for being too hokey.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Samantha Highfill

    If you love your mother, do not make her see this movie.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Molly Eichel

    A piece of schlock from Garry Marshall.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    The cinematic equivalent of a paper plate with macaroni and glitter haphazardly glued onto it, Mother’s Day is a film only its creators could love (and even they must be having some misgivings).

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    It’s like a nightmare in which you are trapped in an endless Kmart aisle of horrible holiday cards.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Jen Chaney

    Despite an army of appealing actors in its large ensemble cast, the rom-com Mother’s Day is startlingly unappealing. Clumsily edited and culturally tone deaf, it’s more obsessed with the titular holiday than even most mothers would find reasonable.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Katie Walsh

    Mother's Day is a total mess, but what's truly offensive is that they didn't even try to make this cynical, post-Sunday brunch cash grab even remotely watchable. Your mom deserves so much better this Mother's Day. Go see "The Meddler" instead.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    A Mother’s Day movie full of flat jokes, reheated clichés and two hours spent staring at your watch.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    You can survive this comedy, which was directed by Garry Marshall and written by too many people to shame by naming, but only if you’re immune to febrile calculation complicated by chronic ineptitude.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    The film constantly reveals itself as having no idea how human beings speak or behave.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Kimber Myers

    Mother’s Day is the cinematic equivalent of spilling boiling hot coffee on your mother when you bring her burnt toast for breakfast in bed.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    Aniston is bad here, but she’s not alone. Marshall allows everyone in the movie to either play to their worst instincts or avert their eyes while skipping through the wreckage.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Sobczynski

    None of the actors are able to find a way to rise above the material, instead just plowing through in the broadest manner possible while trying not to look too obviously embarrassed. Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    As a comedy, this is an unmitigated disaster. As a fever dream of nonsensical non sequiturs, it might be a secret masterpiece.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    From awkward start to merciful finish, Mother's Day is a grim, listless affair that may leave you pining for the relative pep and coherence of its predecessors (both of which were scripted by Katherine Fugate), or at least a few of their incidental pleasures.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    The movie, a goopy, glossy mess with 10 times more respect for contrived sentimentality than for film grammar, is bereft of genuinely amusing jokes — Mr. Marshall really had some nerve naming his autobiography “Wake Me When It’s Funny.”

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    Lifeless, ugly, and vaguely evil in its gross attempt to offer something for everyone, Mother's Day doesn't feel like a movie so much as it does a cinematic adaptation of Walmart.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Atrociously written, begrudgingly acted, haphazardly assembled and never more backward than when it thinks it’s being progressive.

    Variety Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Nothing could have prepared us for the offensively stupid, shamelessly manipulative, ridiculously predictable and hopelessly dated crapfest that is Mother’s Day.
