Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
She packed your lunch. Tolerated your music. And quietly looked forward to the day you'd be happily on your own. If anyone qualifies as unforgettable, it's Mom. And if there's a comedy that qualifies as hilarious, it's "Mother." Albert Brooks is star, co-writer and director of this comic valentine about a twice-divorced author who decided the only way to fix his relationship problems is to move back to his childhood home and solve the problems he had with the first woman in his life—Mom (Debbie Reynolds, winning raves in her first starring film role in 27 years). For laughs as only Albert Brooks can deliver, come home to "Mother." Also starring Rob Morrow and featuring Lisa Kudrow.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Not only will you laugh at someone else's pathetic problems, it'll save you money on therapy.
Fresh: It wasn't the automatic laughter produced by slam-dunk punch lines, but the laughter of recognition, of insight, even sometimes of squirmy discomfort, as the truths hit close to home.
Fresh: the film wears its aesthetic sophistication lightly ( ... ) Bong takes the idea of the primacy of perception over reality to its ultimate extreme
So damn funny
Poignant, hilarious, all-too-true.
I loved it
But then again, I love Brooks and Reynolds and feel that they can do no wrong. So don't listen to me. lol
Reminded me of my mother.
