My moms' nights out have been few and far between, so I was so excited to get a little pre-mother's day break recently to see Mother's Day, hosted by my friend Brianne of Stroller in the City. We made our way downtown to the Battery Park Cinemas — which has gorgeous views.
I hung out with my blogger friends as we took in the movie, munching on delicious Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles and popcorn.
The movie was really cute and it's exactly what I needed to see….
While I don't want to spoil the movie, here are the highlights:
Sandy (played by Jennifer Aniston) is a stressed-out, divorced mom who is trying to co-parent with ex-husband Timothy Olyphant (who is super foxy with grey hair). However, he has a new wife who's MUCH younger (played by Shay Mitchell). Sandy isn't pleased, to say the very least. She's friends with Jesse (played by Kate Hudson). Jesse and her sister (played by Sarah Chalke) are both moms and hiding some pretty big things from their parents, played by the hilarious Margo Martindale and Robert Pine. Bradley (played by the charming and funny Jason Sudeikis) is a widower who's trying to raise two daughters on his own. Television shopping host Miranda (Julia Roberts) is too busy with her career to worry about having children. Kristin and Zack are a young couple with a baby. All the stories start to intersect and some pretty big problems come out — while yes, everything does get neatly wrapped up, I liked the movie.
Take your mom (or your mom friends) to see this! http://fandan.co/mothersdaymovie
