This Sunday, May 8, is the Mother’s Day of this year. On Mother’s Day, what we often do is gift our dear old mother some cards, candy or small kitchen appliances. In fact, Mother’s Day is the day to spend time with dear mommy and make her feel special. What better way to enjoy you’re the day together with mom than by watching a movie based on the relationship between a mother and her children? Here I have listed some famous movies for you to watch with your dear mom on Mother’s Day. Just be sure your picked movies would be suitable for this special day.
1. Terms of Endearment
Adapted from a book by Larry McMurtry, this 1983 comedy/drama stars Shirley MacLaine, Debra Winger, Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, Jeff Daniels, and John Lithgow. This one is especially great for daughters to watch with their mothers, as the central plot of the story revolves around the thirty-year mother-daughter relationship between Aurora Greenway (MacLaine) and her stubborn child, Emma (Debra Winger). As with Steel Magnolias, you’d better have some tissues handy.
2. Erin Brockovich
Erin Brockovich is a movie starring Julia Roberts, Albert Finny, Aaron Eckhart and Peter Coyote. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the movie was released in 2000. Erin Brockovich is the story of a single mother, who fights against the injustice meted out to the common people.
The story of Parenthood revolves around the sensitive relationship between parents and their children. It shows what happens when the parents set too high standards for their children. Directed by Ron Howard, the film stars Steve Martin, Mary Steenburgen, Jasen Fisher, Dianne Wiest and Keanu Reeves.
Another tearjerker, it starred Julia Robert, Ed Harris and Susan Sarandon. When Luke (Harris) and Jackie (Sarandon) get divorced, both she and her children must get used to the idea of a new woman in Luke’s life (Roberts). For her role as the bitter divorcee, Susan Sarandon received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress.
5. Gone With the Wind
If your mom’s a romantic at heart, she’s sure to love this 1939 classic. It nabbed 10 Oscars, plus it’s the highest-grossing movie of all time when adjusted for inflation. Set during the time of the Civil War, this sweeping epic revolves around the complicated romance between Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) and Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh). It also includes a few of the most famous lines in movie history, including, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”
6. Steel Magnolias
Your mother is sure to love this chick flick extravaganza about a bunch of women living life to the fullest in northwest Louisiana. Starring the powerhouse cast of Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis, Julia Roberts, Tom Skerritt, Dylan McDermott, and Sam Shepard. Keep the Kleenex close on this one.
7. Throw Momma from the Train
Larry Donner (Billy Crystal) and Owen Lift (Danny DeVito) both have problems with women in this 1987 comedy. Larry wants his scheming wife dead, while Owen wants to be rid of his domineering mother (played by Anne Ramsey). Sure, the lead characters are trying to kill people, but it’s still a really fun movie to watch with your mother. Anne Ramsey is hilarious as the unlikable Mrs. Lift, and the scene where Owen shows Larry his coin collection gets to me every time.
8. Dirty Dancing
The film makes women the world over lust after Patrick Swayze. This is a great movie to watch with your mom, especially if she grew up in the ‘50s or ‘60s. It features a soundtrack full of hits and loads of sultry dance numbers (especially the final one).
Also, there are also some other famous movies for Mother’s Day watch, like Cheaper By the Dozen, Forrest Gump, Sleepless in Seattle, Mr. Mommy, Big Fat Greek Wedding, Mommie Dearest, A League of Their Own, etc.
