Looking for a perfect movie to watch with your mom? We’ve got you covered!
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and while there are many great ways to celebrate your mom this year, having a good laugh (or a cry) in front of the TV, snuggled up together under a cozy blanket, is definitely one of them.
What is it going to be this year… Maybe a lighthearted comedy. Or maybe your mom would prefer to be thrilled with a suspenseful title? Or, perhaps you both feel like diving down memory lane with a classic motherhood-themed movie?
Before you get overwhelmed with the options, we’ve rounded up our top five movies to watch with your mom this Mother’s Day. Which one is your favorite?
The First Wives Club (1996)
Bette Middler, Diane Keaton, and Goldie Hawn – need we say more? This choice is guaranteed to make you cry laughing, as three newly divorced friends join forces to show their ex-husbands who’s really the boss.
Motherhood certainly isn’t all rainbows and butterflies. Tully tells a story of an exhausted mother of three who’s trying to remember who she was before having kids with the help of a hired nanny named Tully.
If you want to bond with your mom over a good cry, Stepmom with Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon is for you. Watch the struggles of a blended family trying to find their footing in the new, co-parenting reality after the divorce.
This new retake on Stephen King’s classic, starring Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore, is bound to give you chills — and make you glad your mom isn’t like Carrie’s mom!
Freaky Friday (1976)
While you could watch the version with Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis from 2003, this version starring Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster could be a fun way to switch things up a little (pun intended!).
