Jamie Lee Curtis and Peter Gallagher are excellent in this forgotten thriller about a divorced mother and father who fight over the right to see their two boys. Jamie Lee Curtis plays the mother who comes back into the boys lives after three yrs away and tries to get them back and destroy her exhusbands new life with his girlfriend. Jamie Lee is pretty good at being crazy in this flick and it is surely one of her best acting roles. The movie has numerous chilling momments that are brillantly filmed. Crystal clear picture makes for an enjoyable movie for all B movie thriller fans. Get this movie ASAP! It probably is not available to rent anymore so pick up a cheap used one like I did--you will not regret it! Enjoy!!!!!

Jamie Lee Curtis as the borderline ex-wife was nail-biting. She's a completely out-of-control, violent, and extremly jealous ex-wife who tries to be with her family again after abandoning them 3 years earlier. But her husband has already found a new woman. This causes a nightmare for the family as she begins threatening and terrorizing the new woman. She becomes her family's worst enemy as she constantly breaks and enters, destroys property, and tells lies to her children about their father, etc...A very good thriller.

I am a fan of Peter Gallagher which why I purchased this movie. I liked the movie and was very surprised how well this was done. You really don't anticipate (at least I didn't) the ending. Jamie Lee Curtis was perfect for the role of the ex-wife. I enjoyed this movie. I liked the dream effects and the preminisions. This is truly a cliffhanger. Overall the acting was a bit above average. I recommend this movie if you like Romantic Adventure Mysteries.....

Indeed, it is a predictable premise...only instead of the psychotic ex lover, it's the psychotic soon to be ex-wife...out to get "her family" back.
Jamie Lee Curtis is chillingly convincing as Jude, the maniac woman who left her family three years previous. Now she's back, and she'll do anything to keep her family.
This is probably the only movie of Jamie's besides True Lies that I like - she does psychopath extremely well.
The other adult characters in the movie, with the exception of Jude's mother, (played by Vanessa Redgrave, with a pretty good resemblance to Jamie btw...) are imbeciles, but Jamie makes it all worth while. She's that good...she's sick, and she convinced me-- whether she's trying to molest her 12 year old son or get the family dog run over by a car, she's got what it takes to make us believe it and make us all want her dead.
Peter Gallagher was better in While You Were Sleeping - at least he was supposed to be comatose there.
It's a little cheezy, it's kind of cliche, it's fairly pretictable - but it isn't a total waste. And be sure to let the closing credits play - the theme song, "The Longest Night" is beautifully haunting and will make your hair stand up.

Obviously, any mother who abandons her family for 3 years and then returns out of nowhere to reclaim her sons has deep psychological problems. Curtis does a splendid job in her role as the deeply disturbed, perhaps satanic parent who eventually reaches out too far,and suffers the ultimate fall.Whalley is nearly as effective as the school vice principal,turned lover, turned family protector, whose heroic efforts save the aforementioned boys. But, where is Gallagher? While all hell is breaking out around him, he seems to be more interested in an architectural project, going shopping, meeting with his wimpy lawyer, being in the wrong place at the wrong time,(buying a Big Mac)? Whalley wants to marry this nincompoop? Additionally, the movie's background music seems to imply satanic involvement,as do nightmares, flashbacks, sharp sounds;but not totally convincingly to this reviewer. The pacing is spasmodic, and Curtis' miraculous recovery from a self inflicted forehead slashing must have made A.M.A. history. Sorry, even though somewhat entertaining,this picture fails to live up to "thrillers"past.

9 of 12 people found the following review helpful By FilmGuy60002 on March 16, 2006
Format: DVD
The story line in the movie itself is a little bit disturbing, and reminded me very much of "Single White Female". The plot is pretty simple (ok, paper thin)- but don't watch it for that; if you're like me (a Jamie Lee Curtis Fan - yes, I confess) this was kind of fun to watch. Her other film roles have generally been of her as a fairly squeaky clean, wholesome person or as a victim. But in "Mother's Boys", she really goes the other way (to the dark side that is). And she looks great, and is very sexy in this role - especially when it comes to showing those great legs she has, which she inherited from her mother (Janet Leigh). It also reminded me of "A Fish Called Wanda", where she REALLY showed those great legs.

Any way watch and enjoy!

Format: DVD
Jamie Lee Curtis is a much better actress than most people have ever realized. Typically cast as the terrified young ingenue who could really screen, e.g., HALLOWEEN, Curtis takes a turn as the woman from hell in this underrated chiller. She joins a list of notables in this genre: Jessica Walter in PLAY MISTY FOR ME; Patsy Kensit in HELL'S GATE; Kathleen Turner in BODY HEAT; Glenn Close in FATAL ATTRACTION; Rebecca DeMornay in HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE, to name just a few. And Jamie's right up there with them.
Jamie plays a mother who abandons her family twice, once for 3 months and then for three years. All of a sudden, she's back and she wants her family. However, hubby Peter Gallagher has fallen in love with assistant principal Joanne Whalley-Kilmer and is going to divorce Jamie Lee. Jamie's mama, played low key and convincingly by the still lovely Vanessa Redgrave, also thinks the divorce is for the best, harboring a surprising secret to justify this. Of course, Jamie does everything within her power to get hubby and boys back, including poisoning the oldest son's (Luke Edwards, an excellent performance) feelings towards his new mother.
There are some disturbing scenes involving incestuous overtones between Curtis and Edwards that are handled tastefully, and there are three scenes that will pull you out of your chairs!
Curtis exudes a sensuality and evil never seen in her prior to this. With "Freaky Friday" and memories of this gem, Curtis will someday get the Oscar and praise she deserves!
