Best Mother's Day Movies

>> Mar 29, 2013

This Mother's Day, you may simply want uninterrupted, quality family time. Maybe a home-cooked dinner prepared by your children and husband followed by a movie marathon with amazing leading ladies. Snuggle up on the couch with popcorn in hand and beautiful Mother's Day flowers from FTD filling the home with a wonderful aroma while you watch one of these amazing movies perfect for celebrating this special day.


'Mary Poppins'

MPAA Rating: G
Runtime: 2 hours 19 minutes.
"A Spoonfull of Sugar" and "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" are just a couple of the catchy songs in this movie that I myself have sung since childhood. In this film, Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews) is a magical nanny who comes to work for an unhappy family. This 1964 movie was ahead of its time and features a blending of live action and animated figures together.

Why this is a great Mother's Day flick: This is an overall feel-good movie. You and your children will be singing the songs and laughing at the jokes from this film for days after.

'Sound of Music'

MPAA Rating: G
Runtime: 2 hours 54 minutes
"The Sound of Music" is one of the most well-know movie musicals. Maria's (Julie Andrews) life as a nun in Austria is not meant to be. After leaving the convent, she becomes the governess to seven mischievous children of a very strict Naval-officer widower. Through song she is able to teach the children, and over time she cares for them as if they were her own. Especially wonderful scenes include the classic songs "Favorite Things" and "Do Re Mi."

Why this is a great Mother's Day flick: The love Maria has for these children is obvious and through her love she was able to show the children responsibility, love and kindness. This movie shows families that a mom doesn't have to be biologically related to be a wonderful caregiver.

'Mamma Mia'

MPAA Rating: PG-13
Runtime: 1 hour 48 minutes.
Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is about to get married and on the journey to find out who her real father is. When she finds her mother Donna's (Meryl Streep) journal she finds she has three potential fathers. This musical movie features songs by the popular '70s group ABBA and is an entertaining and beautiful movie.

Why this is a great Mother's Day flick: The relationships throughout this movie are touching. Sophie and Donna's closeness and friendship is inspiring for any mother and daughter.

'The Incredibles'

MPAA Rating: PG
Runtime: 1 hour 55 minutes.
"The Incredibles" is a great family-friendly animated movie. From Pixar Studios, this action animation is great for superhero lovers and families of all kinds. In the film, a family of undercover superheroes are trying to live a quiet, normal suburban life. But when every superhero they know and love are at risk, they are forced back into action.

Why this is a great Mother's Day flick: This movie is entertaining for the kids but comedic for the parents. Helen Parr/ Elastigirl is a super mom and one of the toughest animated moms on film, perfect for Mother's Day.

'Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood'

MPAA Rating: PG-13
Runtime: 1 hour 56 minutes.
Siddalee (Sandra Bullock) is a well-known playwright in New York who has been estranged from her mother Viviane (Ellen Burstyn) for years. When the interview Siddalee had with Time magazine is published, her Southern-living mother is none too happy. But Viviane's childhood friends, the "ya-ya sisterhood" gang, will do anything in their power to get this mother-daughter relationship on better ground.

Why this is a great Mother's Day flick: It explores the complexity of female relationships and the strong bond between mothers and daughters.


MPAA Rating: PG-13
Runtime: 2 hours 5 minutes.
Terminally-ill mother Jackie Harrison (Susan Sarandon) decides to make the best of things when she teaches her ex-husband's soon-to-be new wife Isabel Kelly how to be a great stepmom to her two children. Now this film might sound grave and sad, but it's a wonderfully filmed movie with amazing life lessons. Jackie's two children have to learn to cope with the fact that their parents are divorced, their father has a new woman in his life and their mother only has a few months to live.

Why this is a great Mother's Day flick: Although Jackie is getting sicker and sicker, she believes in celebrating the time that she has left with her family. A memorable scene is when she joyously dances and sings "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" with her kids. Definite tear jerker.
