This Julia Roberts & Jennifer Aniston Flick Just Hit #7 on Netflix (& We Know What We're Watching This Weekend)

If you're a rom-com lover, then this new Netflix upload will surely be of interest.

The 2016 movie Mother's Day is one of Netflix's newest additions, and it features a star-studded cast, including Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Kate Hudson in leading roles. Meanwhile, the late Garry Marshall took the reins as director, after previously directing classics like Pretty Woman and The Princess Diaries.

And yes, while we realize that Mother's Day happened almost two months ago, the movie was just added to Netflix and it's already jumped into the #7 slot on their list of most-watched flicks. Check out the trailer below.

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.
