Well, what did you expect? It may have been predictable but what else could I possibly choose on the day itself- James L. Brooks' 1983 classic is the definitive Mother's Day movie, there's just no denying it. Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger are the ultimate mother-daughter pair, their incredible performances (and those of the supporting cast) hitting every note across the entire human emotional spectrum. It's a movie not just about their relationship with each other, but also their relationships with their friends, husbands, lovers and children as no less than 15 years pass over the course of these two women's lives. It's really hard to strike the right tone in a movie like this, where it's just as funny as it is sad at times, often like life itself, and yet it never for one moment hits a false note. You'll laugh and sob in equal parts- so sit back and enjoy this one with your own mother if you can. I can't recommend it enough- this Best Picture winner is one of my personal top ten favorite movies ever.
