Mother’s Day is almost here! Have you decided what you’re
gonna do for Mom? Sometimes one of the best things to do with your mama is to
just chill out. Check out this list of flicks we heart watching with our own
mothers…and know you will enjoy doing the same.
We dig this movie because it makes us feel so cuddly and
warm inside! Plus, your younger sibs can watch it, too—and they actually won’t
complain that they’re bored.
What’s not to love about an awesome family that fights crime together? A family
that saves the world together and stays together, right?
The Sound of Music
Your mom has prob been watching this flick since she was
your age! Not only is it a great movie, but the songs are amazing, too. You
both will be singing “My Favorite Things” for the rest of the week—promise.
This movie is sweet because the children ultimately receive
the motherly love they’ve been wanting—from the least expected place. Their
strict governess proves to be a wonderful motherly figure because she keeps
them in line and nurtures them.
The Secret Life of Bees
After a horrible accident causes her mother to die, Lily is
left with her abusive father at an early age and feels very alone. She runs
away from home, trying to learn more about her mother from the Boatwright
sisters, soon realizing she gained several mothers during her stay. This movie
celebrates how awesome women are!
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
You know your family does annoying stuff, we don’t have to
tell you that. But what you should remember is that they do it completely out
of love. This flick is a funny reminder of how quirky a family can be…and how
much more fun it is that way.
Cheaper by the Dozen
Another fun family flick! Can you imagine having 11 brothers
and sisters? That might sound like the worst punishment in the world to you,
but trust us, you’ll wish you had that many by the end of this film. (Well,
almost that many.)
This movie is about a man whose IQ is a little bit below
average, but accomplishes things that even a genius couldn’t do, like run
across the country without training. He finds his one true love, Jenny, when
he’s a little boy, and throughout the movie, he continuously tries to get her
back. Watch this to find out if he can ultimately keep her.
We heart this musical movie set in the ’60s. The songs are
so catchy that you won’t be able to get them out of your head. Plus, John
Travolta plays the mother in this movie—yes, the same guy who played Danny
Zucko in Grease
You know your dad and bro probably don’t wanna watch this
movie because it’s pretty much a chick flick. So what better way to bond solo
with Mom while watching this. It’s so romantic and intense—you’ll be on the
edge of your seat!
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
This movie is about a man who is born old and ages backwards
(he gets younger throughout the film). He ends up falling in love with a girl,
but she ages normally. What will they do when their ages become too far apart?
How will they make their love last? You and Mom will have to find out together.
