6 Best Movies to Watch with Mom

Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan in "Freaky Friday"
(Disney)
So, you decided to avoid the crowds and chaos at the restaurants for Mother's Day this year and have invited your mom over to your house instead. Good for you. Now, what are you planning on doing? Why not make a nice brunch and enjoy a movie together? If so, avoid Mommie Dearest and Throw Momma From the Train and go with one of these instead:



Mom's Night Out (2014)
Staring: Sarah Drew, Sean Astin and Patricia Heaton
Rated: PG

This underrated faith-based comedy arrived in theaters last Mother's Day and was a hit with many moms if not the critics. In it, Allyson is overworked and “up to here” with her kids, but then, that makes her feel guilty for feeling that way. Her husband encourages her to go on a “mom's night out” with some friends from church. They can even invite the pastor's wife. What could go wrong? Any mother feeling guilty for not being the “best” mom will appreciate this. The film is full of laughs, is non-preachy and encouraging and is something the whole family will enjoy.

Brave (2012)
Voice Talent: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly and Emma Thompson
Rated: PG

This is the ultimate mother/daughter movie that even the boys in the family will like. Merida is the strong-willed daughter and princess of Fergus and Elinor who is about to be paraded among some available bachelors, but unlike other Disney princesses, she wants none of it. So, with the help of a strange old lady, Merida chooses to change her own fate with humorous and almost tragic results. The film is full of strong messages with the main one being that sometimes being brave means to say that you are sorry.
