About the 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. – USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

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. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

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

Disappointing, Should be 30 minutes

Thought this would be a fun movie to watch with Mom and Dad. We were all disappointed. It was a sleeper. A very simple plot that dragged on and on with little to offer. Would have been okay if it was 30 minutes long. There are plenty of great movies out there... This one misses the mark.
