Mother’s Day is this weekend (May 12th), and it’s the perfect excuse to round up the family, pop up a batch of your favorite popcorn and have a movie night in honor of mom! We’ve put together a collection of movies with some of the most inspirational movie moms we’ve ever encountered – which one of these fab family films will you treat your mom to?
Kate Baker, Cheaper by the Dozen
This hilarious comedy is a great choice for your Mother’s Day celebrations – we’ve got nothing but respect for any woman who can give birth to and raise a staggering twelve children! The Baker brood may have their naughty moments when career woman Kate leaves for her book tour, but overall they’re a fun-loving family and she does a great job of teaching them what’s really important in life.
Helen Parr, The Incredibles
Helen’s about as busy as a mom can possibly be, juggling the care of her three children, Violet, Dash and Jack Jack with some pretty serious superhero duties. However, whether she’s cooking dinner, doing the school run or saving the world from peril, Helen proves what we already knew – that every mom is a hero in their own way!
Leigh Anne Tuohy, The Blind Side
Based on a true story, The Blind Side is the inspirational tale of Michael Oher, who is welcomed into Leigh Anne’s family when he is left homeless after a series of traumatic life events. This incredible story proves that you don’t have to be a blood relative to be a mom – just a caring woman with plenty of love to give.
