Mother's Day is tomorrow and being a mom I get to pick what I want to do on my "special day", this according to my children and my husband.   I have decided to do nothing.  I plan on sleeping in, and by sleeping in I mean until 8:00 am (crazy I know).

I am going to sit in a hot bubble bath with a glass (or two or three) of wine and then watch my favorite mom movies.

Here are the top five mom movies I love.

  • 1

    Mrs. Doubtfire

    I absolutely loved Robbin Williams in this movie. Mrs Doubtfire is based on Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine, the movie starred the late Robin Williams (who also served as co-producer), Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan, Harvey Fierstein, and Robert Prosky.
    It won the Academy Award for Best Makeup and a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
    For his performance in the film, Robin Williams won a Golden Globe for Best Actor.

    Steel Magnolias

  • 3


    Stepmom is 1998 comedy-drama  stars Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon, and Ed Harris.

    My take on the movie is that  even when relationships change between married couples and someone new comes into their lives, though are are hard feelings at first, sometimes when you give each other a chance, you may discover that there can be a great friendship there.

    Sarandon won the San Diego Film Critics Society Award for Best Actress and Harris won the National Board of Review Award for Best Supporting Actor,

    The Blind Side

    I love this movie,not only because it;s based a true story of overcoming bad odds, but because it shows that there are really no barriers on love when it comes to family and that you don't have to be blood or even have the same color of skin to be family.  The Blind Side features Michael Oher, an offensive lineman who played for the Baltimore Ravens and theTennessee Titans, and currently is signed with the Carolina Panthers in the NFL. The movie stars Quinton AaronSandra BullockTim McGraw  and Kathy Bates

    Hope Floats

    Hope Floats is a romantic drama starring Sandra Bullock, Harry Connick, Jr., and Gena Rowlands.

    Bullock plays an unassuming housewife whose life is disrupted when her husband reveals his infidelity to her on a Ricki Lake-style talk show.

    She goes home to her mother (Rowlands) and the small town in which she grew up, where everyone knows of her televised marital collapse.

    She runs in an old friend, Justin (Connick, Jr.) sparking a romance.
