Editorial Reviews

Raising kids is never easy. Eliza, a stay-at-home mom of two, hilariously finds this out in seemingly endless day where she must plan a birthday party, deal with her scatter-brained husband, save her car from being towed, and write an essay for a parenting magazine before the fast-approaching deadline. Starring Uma Thurman, Anthony Edwards and Minnie Driver.

Customer Reviews

And the acting is very well done.
Amazon Customer
Whew.... Uma Thurman, in a role so entirely different than anything she's done before, plays 'mom' and is fantastic!
Compusurge
I even did not get why movie ended because nothing has not started yet.

Greenwhich Village, NY (specifically the west village) provides the backdrop for this totally fun romantic comedy about a mom who has to plan out one crazy, yet typical mom-day that in this instance includes tonight's 6 year b-day party, but also includes protecting her car, saving her bike, getting the right goodie-bags, befriending her friend (Minnie Driver)and of course writing her blog about being a mom. Whew....

Uma Thurman, in a role so entirely different than anything she's done before, plays 'mom' and is fantastic! Her relationship with her husband (Anthony Edwards) seem quite real-life in that he wants to be of help but hey... he is a man, right? There IS a bit of magic between them indeed and while it might not be on the scale of "Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan" (yet), it peeks through nonetheless and proves itself by the end of the film in a scene sure to win you over entirely. I could envision the two together in more films going forward...

Minnie Driver plays the perfect supporting role as 'insightful best friend' and while the movie runs along a somewhat predictable course at times, it also provides some very nice surprises and follows that formula that always wins while laying in some interesting insights into what it's like to be a mom. I can see the mommy-blogs launching new discussions for sure and a plethora of subjects. OK OK... I realize that I am not a mom, but I am married to one...

If you enjoy films like Moonstruck, Sleepless in Seattle, Mask, You've Got Mail and so on, Motherhood is a likely winner for you.

I loved this movie. The Norman Rockwell/"Leave it to Beaver" view of motherhood never worked for me. Life is a wonderful, funny, heartbreaking juggling act...and I think this film "gets it." As I've raised my brood in a rural community, I was amused and fascinated by the film's take on raising kids in the city. Overall...the film fascinated me...amused me...touched me. It was one of the better films I've seen recently. It's smart, and the humor comes out of irony.

Great movie. Period. Many of us mothers could relate to this character, even though many other reviewers didn't think so. I am a stay at home mom in the heart of a big city to kids the same age as those on the movie. Its rough at times, especially when you have no grandparents or anyone to drop the kids off to so you can have some of your life back for an instant. I have had my husband come home to watch kids cause I needed 15 minutes of peace at the store. By the end, her long speech to her husband hit home. We lived similar lives to the movie husband and wife, and it brought things to perspective. Motherhood is a joy and a chore all that the same time. But I, like the main character, wouldn't trade it for anything.

This was a very funny movie and well worth the hour and a half or so spent watching it... A lot of reviewers seem to want perfection as they see it in a movie about a mom making her way through a busy day, but this movie just offers some hilarious fun and good-natured escape. I'd recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor!

I by passed this at the rental store but I wish now that I had not. Uma Thurman really did an awesome job in this film and every mother could totally relate to this film and if your a blogger mom you'll love it! I know the critics really got down on this film but they made a mistake it's a gem!

It is ONE DAY in the life of a mom, played by Uma Thurman, and it is just an amazing, empowering story, with a fantabulous soundtrack. It is PG-13, and your children can NOT watch it because of some really choice swear words ;)

This is probably a really good movie that lots of people will truly enjoy. I can say that this little story about a day in the life of this family, and especially the mother, does have a certain charm to it. And the acting is very well done.

But here is the thing that really turned me off: This day is very hectic. My, my. All the things the mother has to do in this day. What a busy, almost intolerable day. My. my. Of course, most of us have to do all that stuff, and still go to work. We get up at 4:30 every morning, do EVERYTHING this mother has to do, put in 8 serious hours, commute, trust our children to daycare, come home, clean, cook, shop, be cheerful....

Some people think that is a choice. But for most of us, it isn't. It is just the reality of needing a paycheck. So, this movie just didn't click with me. I felt like I was watching Marie Antoinette say, "Let them eat cake."

I don't think I've ever been so sarcastic in a review, but this movie was just very, very, very shallow.

Don't be fooled by that 5-star review. This could have been extremely funny, but it was not at all. I am a mother and think my day-to-day life can be humorous at times, but the humor is way too contrived and the actors are trying too hard to be funny. The whole thing made me cringe. My husband went to bed after 10 minutes, I should have gone with him.
