Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and Valentine’s Day – they all had their respective romantic comedy releases and now, the movie theatres are set to make way for another.
Are you ready for “Mother’s Day”? Because the rom-com flick is featuring a slew of A-list actors including Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, and Kate Hudson along with Jason Sudeikis in this Garry Marshall directed film (who also helmed “Valentine’s Day” and “New Year’s Eve”).
Roberts plays a workaholic talk show host and author, Miranda, who has forsaken her family life for a successful career. In the trailer, we see her offering a job to Aniston’s character, Sandy, a recently divorced single mum of 2 boys who is looking for love. Her ex-hubby has just remarried his youthful new girlfriend played by Shay Mitchell from “Pretty Little Liars”.
Frustrated, she confides in her bestie Jesse (played by Kate Hudson), who is currently going through a rough patch with her own mum (played by Margo Martindale). Jesse is forced to spend some quality time with her family when her parents shows up at her home unexpectedly.
Sudeikis on the other hand, will portray “one of the least-explored dimensions of motherhood: being a father”. As “Mr Mum”, Bradley and Aniston’s Sandy bond over their single parent status. Here, he struggles through awkwardness with his 16-year-old daughter as she goes through puberty. He is even uncomfortable writing the letters t-a-m-p-o-n-s, sigh.
So whether it’s the single mother, single father cum mother figure, a mother seeking to reconnect with her own mother, or a daughter seeking for her own biological mother, these individuals will come to learn of the true meaning Mother’s Day. Or at least a better understanding of it.
Watch the trailer below:
So who’s going to be sitting on the front row waiting for Julia Roberts’ wig? :D
“Mother’s Day” is slated for release on 29th April.
