Mother’s Day DVD release – review and giveaway
I’m a huge rom com fan – unfortunate when the OH’s favourite films are old westerns, war movies and fighting/action films. But I got a treat when I was sent the new DVD release of Mother’s Day to review.
Directed by Gary Marshall, Mother’s Day has a stellar cast including Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and Kate Hudson, plus the gorgeous (even if he does have a beard) Jason Sudeikis. The movie explores what motherhood means to eat woman in their different situations as well as their relationships with partners and families, all as mother’s day approaches.
As well as the laugh out loud moments – in particular I love Jennifer Aniston’s comic timing – there’s the expected poignant moments where it makes you reflect on things in your own life.
I really enjoyed Mother’s Day and I was lucky enough to watch it all in one go, in peace while N was out on the farm with his dad. So I didn’t have to explain why I was crying at the end…I’m such a wuss when watching films whether it’s happy or sad (I blame watching International Velvet as a child).

LOVE ACTUALLY. MAKES ME CRY EVERY TIME XX
I loved Notting Hill
Pretty Woman as it makes my wife happy.
My fave movie of all time is Pretty woman – I love Julia Roberts , I just wish they would make it in to a west end show. My mums fave is Bridget Jones Diary – Im hoping to get her the new movie for her birthday.

50 First Dates has to be my ultimate rom com favourite different to the usual run of the mill films. He changes his womanising ways, wins her family and friends trust and keeps getting her to fall in love with him every day. After they split up and he gets the cd from her dad and goes to see Lucy in the hospital and though she cant remember him shes been dreaming about him every night pulls on the heart strings and the video Henry makes for Lucy to wake up to every morning make makes you go awwwww. Love it!!

Splash, with Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah
Pretty Woman. Nice title, great outfits, some humour. A bit of Rags to Riches story, reminds us of Pygmalion. I suppose it shows that good looks can be valuable and allow Social Inclusion, Social Climbing etc. Though what would be nice is acceptance, support, sharing, Caring. As she is excluded by individuals :- Shop Sales Staff at Expensive Boutique. As well as looked down upon by Hotel Manager. Yet it has likely been the inequalities of life that has impacted on her, placing her in the poor situation that she is.
Yet she is loved, and becomes more loveable as she begins to fit in by wearing good quality clothing :- looking the part etc.
Julia Roberts is a good actress.
four Christmas’s so funny x
Four Weddings and a Funeral, well written, very funny, sad moments too. Everything you need in a romcom.
love Pretty Woman 🙂
I like 4 weddings and a funeral – it is funny and well made
I did enjoy the holiday 🙂
i have to be honest, I’m not your typical rom com girl! I do try and avoid most of them at all costs, but I watch anything that has Drew Barrymore or Jennifer Aniston in them and as they both do a shedload of rom coms, I have to go against my beliefs! Lol So I would say The Wedding Singer, as it’s funny and reminds me of when I was little. Which was when the movie came out and not when it was set ( I wish)
Along Came Polly is my absolute favourite rom com! I love both Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston!
Love Actually – lots of little different storylines running through! Love watching it at Christmas x
Amelie; slightly offbeat but good for it all the same, and entertaining without being too demanding
I love Maid In Manhattan because it’s the underdog winning the man for a change 🙂
I suppose it has a nice message, nice story. As why shouldn’t the nice person, hard working individual have happiness, health and wealth.
I’m Striving For It 🙂
My favourite rom-com actually stars Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston and is called ‘we’re the Millers’. The film is hilarious, as are the outtakes!
The holiday. It makes me feel all christmassy x
