Mother’s Day is that one day dedicated to honouring those strong females that withstood bringing all of us into the world. Sure, they should be celebrated daily, but that doesn’t always happen and for that we are thankful for the special day that is about all-thing mothers.
Perhaps you have an evening dinner planned or a trip to the spa, or a Raps game is on the agenda—whatever the case may be do something sweet for your mom. And, if you and your mom are more about the homebody life, do not worry, there’s a handful of Mother’s Day movies perfect to snuggle, laugh and cry to, together.
We’re not saying this is the definitive list, the be all of end all script, or the “you must watch these or you fail as a kid” movies, but they are certainly worth investing in, especially around this time of year.
In the late ’90s and early ’00s Jennifer Love Hewitt was romcom royalty. She also starred in little known productions, Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. But forget about those films for a second and remember Heartbreakers, the 2001 comedy featuring JLH alongside Sigourney Weaver. Heartbreakers was one of the few movies at the time that highlighted a mother-daughter duo both concerned with materialistic things and conning men out of their millions. If you and your mom are looking to bond over two women partaking in their final con, one that brings hilarity and marriage to the forefront, sit back and put this flick on. There’s no chance you won’t laugh.
