About the Movie

In the tradition of MY BLOODY VALENTINE, THE STEPFATHER, and LAKEVIEW TERRACE, MOTHER'S DAY follows three brothers who break into their childhood home in order to evade the police. Once there, they take the new owners and their guests hostage, terrorizing and brutalizing them. When their sadistic mother (Rebecca DeMornay of THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE) arrives to help them escape and clean up their mess, she realizes she still has a lot to teach her children, and their hostages, about torture.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Stuffed with secrets and characters who can't wait to betray one another, the film offers no one to root for except Mother, whose perverted family values at least remain consistent. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, May 3, 2012

Rotten: Undistinguished apart from Rebecca De Mornay's performance as an unhinged mama. – Charles Gant, Variety, Apr 30, 2012

Fresh: Mother's Day is distinguished, at least, by De Mornay's porcelain-smile lampoon of castigating matriarchy. – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, May 1, 2012

Fresh: [DeMornay transforms] a dodgily wired script into something that at least crackles when she is on screen. – Nigel Andrews, Financial Times, Jun 8, 2011

Eh kinda left me in the middle

It does start you immediately in medias res which I have to respect, no bullcrap build up, you learn as you go. Rebecca DeMornay is perfect but is Jaime gonna do anything other than 80's remakes?

It was brutal without being over the top, not having gore for gore sake. Although I did find myself yelling "run stupid" or "attack all at once!" way too many times. So I got frustrated more than anything.

Um, I don't know if anybody caught it, but it did seem to turn into a chick flick and we spent more time concentrating on feminist issues, sisterhood, motherhood (obviously), and betrayal, instead of what was happening. I think I could have let my beef go if I was in this situation, so that wasn't believable.

I just think it could have been more focused.

Another Awesome "Bad" Character from DeMornay!

I was pleasantly surprised by this remake! The acting was good by all, but especially by Rebecca DeMornay portraying "Mother". She has such a way about her when she portrays psychotic evil women, that you can't help but sit on the edge of your seat and watch her. Well, at least I can't. The movie itself has a pretty good storyline as mentioned above, and it does keep one entertained. There are some "shock" scenes and tensions do build. I recommend this for fans of the genre and fans of DeMornay.


This was sadistic and dark but by the end you are just blown away!!! Must Buy!!!
