Cine Beaverhausen: Mother's Day
The movie, Mother's Day, opened in cinemas on Friday so, obviously, it means to cash in on the holiday. It stars Jennifer Anniston, Kate Hudson and Julia Roberts in a hideous, very unbecoming red wig.
It's another one of those dysfunctional family get-together movies. Didn't we just go through this at Christmas?
At least this flick isn't treacly sentimental but it's still a bit hard to digest. The film takes place one year after a mother's death. While all professional credits are fine, the final effort doesn't really seem cohesive. Garry Marshall of tv's Laverne and Shirley, the film The Flamingo Kid and more, directed ~ heavy handidly. He recently did the movie Valentine's Day. What's next for him? Memorial Day? Fourth of July?
Stay away from theaters for this luke-warm comedy. It will turn up on video soon enough.
