    Little Women (1994)

    This classic is for moms and daughters of all ages and is so special to many. With their father off fighting in the Civil War, March sisters Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy are left in the care of their mom Marmee. The movie shows the girls grow up as they all deal with love, life and loss.

    Uptown Girls (2003)

    This movie has major role reversals. Molly, a free-spirited adult, acts more like a little girl than Ray, the closed off and reserved girl she nannies for. They may hate each other at first, but the pair eventually bring out the best in each other.

    Mamma Mia (2008)

    It’s the not-so-typical story of a daughter trying to figure out who her dad is before her wedding, while her mom tries to stop her from finding out. You and your mom will be LOLing at this hilarious musical. Not to mention you two will be singing the songs for days after.

    The Blind Side (2009)

    Think this movie is only about football? Think again. Leigh Anne Tuohy (played by Oscar-winning Sandra Bullock), welcomes a homeless Michael Oher into her family and takes him in as her own. The movie is based on the true story of Oher as he goes on to become an All-American football player and NFL draft pick. Both of their courage is inspiring, making it the perfect feel-good flick.

    Raising Helen (2004)

    We heart Raising Helen not only because it shows the sacrifice of being a mom, but it also shows the strength of sisterhood. Not to mention it has a cute love story. Helen Harris becomes guardian of her sister's three children and learns just as much about life and love from them as they do from her.

    Freaky Friday (2003)

    Consider it a mom or daughter’s worst nightmare or dream come to life. To switch places with your mom? Might be fun for a little, but then you’ll want to switch back for sure. This vintage Lindsay Lohan movie has heart and hilarity—the perfect combo for you and your own mama.

    The Parent Trap (1998)

    Check out this ultimate throwback flick with your mama, which just happens to have Lindsay Lohan in it, too. Watch as identical twins Hallie and Annie, separated at birth, are determined to reunite their parents. We won’t spoil the rest—you’ll just have to watch to find out if their parents are still in love.

    Brave (2012)

    We think this has to be one of the best mother/daughter relationships in Disney film history. It tells the story of Merida, a Scottish princess, who sets out to change her fate. Let’s just say she made a reckless decision that might affect her relationship with her mother forever. Brave shows that you might not truly realize what you have until it's gone and when you do, it may be too late.
