The final film of Marshall's career follows in the footsteps of his previous works, like Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve. Similar to those holiday-themed hits, the movie depicts a group of people who are seemingly unconnected, but as the plot unfolds, the hidden connections between these characters are revealed.
Throughout the movie, we see how different families celebrate Mother's Day and all the drama and hijinks that comes with it (and we can certainly relate to the stress of a family get-together). Aniston plays a single mother struggling to process her ex's new girlfriend, Roberts plays an author who finds herself reconnected with a long-lost daughter and Hudson is a woman dealing with the complicated relationship she has with her parents.
As all of these narratives intertwine, the leading ladies are joined by other major stars, including Jason Sudeikis (Saturday Night Live), Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood), Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars), Britt Robertson (A Dog's Purpose), Jack Whitehall (Fresh Meat), Héctor Elizondo (The Princess Diaries), Margo Martindale (Justified), Sarah Chalke (Firefly Lane) and so many more.
We will definitely be having a movie night this weekend.
