MOVIE MOMS!



“Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother”, says Oprah Winfrey . Mother’s day is a time when all mothers are celebrated and not only the nice ones. There is no better time in the year to pay tribute to those we have learned to love and to loathe, mothers who have been portrayed in the big screen have made us try to understand the enigmatic complexity that brings children and mums together.
Juggling parenting, career, love life and sanity is a job only to be performed by someone who can repair the kitchen sink with only her hands -- after Daddy spent a lot of time trying with tools and plenty of cuss words. Being a mother in the ‘silver screen’ is not much easier than in real life. Can you think of remarkable movie ‘moms’ ? Why don’t you help us complete our list, but remember this list is for all kinds of moms, the good and the bad, real or animation, beauties or those who are in need of improvement…so here we go!


Helen Parr (aka Elastigirl)
Appears in:
The Incredibles (2004)Portrayed by: Holly Hunter
Moms perform superhuman feats every day. They dispense valuable advice. They're protective of their children, but know when to let go and allow them to forge their own paths. And they're always true to their own values. Thus, Elastigirl (voiced by Holly Hunter) in The Incredibles is the distillation of maternal excellence -- and she's great at crime-fighting to boot. (Alas, she probably shouldn't have left the poor babysitter alone with super-infant Jack
Jack.)

Mrs. Gump
Appears in: Forrest Gump (1994)Portrayed by: Sally Field
Six years may not seem like a long time, but for Sally Field, they were the difference between playing Tom Hanks' friend (in 1988's Punchline) and playing his rock-solid, long-suffering mother (in 1994's Forrest Gump). From the film's first act, in which she does some implied horizontal boppin' with the dean of a private school to ensure her son's admission, you know you only wished your mom loved you as much as Mrs. Gump loved Forrest. For Field -- who is, for the record, only 10 years Hanks' senior -- the role capped a string of positively received roles that brought her back from the squishy rom-com territory she'd wandered into during the mid-'80s (1987's Surrender, anyone?).


Joan Crawford

Appears in:
Mommie Dearest (1981)Portrayed by: Faye
If Christina Crawford is to be believed (and some claim she isn't), her adoptive mother Joan was a better actress than a parent. Much better. Frank Perry's camp classic Mommie Dearest shows Crawford hacking off Christina's hair, giving away her birthday presents, slapping her, using her (and her siblings) for public relations purposes, and tackling her with a force that would make Lawrence Taylor wince. (And let's not even start on those wire hangers.) In a scenery-chewing -- nay, gobbling -- performance, Faye Dunaway became one of cinema's most notorious examples of bad parenting.

Mama Bates
Appears in:
Psycho (1960)
Poor Norman Bates. All he wants to do is listen to Beethoven and devote time to taxidermy. And yet his mom nags him all the time into maintaining his failing motel. (Spoiler Alert!) No wonder business is slow; Mrs. Bates demands that Norman take a Ginsu to anyone foolish enough to stop by. (At least she taught him how to do housework, since the shower in room #1 is clean as a whistle.) A lot of moms are possessive of their children, but most are at least kind enough not to take up residence in their sons' brains -- or badger them from beyond the grave



Bren MacGuff
Appears in: Juno (2007)
Portrayed by: Allison Janey
Okay, so her dialogue during the first third of the film drifts perilously close to the brink of the stilted, see-how-hip-we-are patois traditionally favored by screenwriters putting words in the mouth of "real" teens -- but Diablo Cody's script quickly redeems itself, giving Ellen Page the rare opportunity to play a pregnant teenager whose journey to delivery avoids all the stereotypical Afterschool Special plot devices that Hollywood can't seem to live without.� In fact, Juno's decision to give the baby up for adoption is one of the least dramatic decisions she makes during the course of the film; it takes her no time at all to decide that she is, in her own words, "ill-equipped" to give her progeny the life she wants for it. If that isn't motherly love, folks, what is?



Ok …Now it’s your turn! Tell us about your favorite or least favorite movie mom.

Beatrix Kiddo

Juno MacGuff(interpretated by Ellen Page) from the film Juno.
In my opinion,she is the worst Mom in the movies,because in the beggining of the pregnancy, she simply tries to get rid of her child,through abortion and adoption.Although,as the pregancy progresses,she starts to care and love her child.
Quite frankly,i loathe her actions and herself,nonetheless the film was great.

Grace - The Others
Nicole Kidman plays Grace Stewart in the film The Others and has two children, a boy and a girl. Apparently, the family lives in a normal house and are wainting for the father who was in the war when unusual things start to happen. The children have photosensitivity and Grace create rules in order to protect them. Three servents arrive at the house and Grace starts to fear that they are not alone because odd events keep hapening. The love of mother is touching and Nicole plays very well.

There is the movie Mamma Mia, which is a musical, stage-to-film adaptation. The story is about the beautiful single mother Donna Sheridan, played by Meryl Streep, who looks for possible fathers to her daughter, Sophie, with the rest of the casting.

Kyle Pratt from Flight Plan.
While flying from Berlim to New York, Kyle's six years old daughter desappears. The mother, desperate and almost going crazy, goes after her child, but the crew says that the little girl had never entered that plane. She tries to speak to the other passengers, but they all haven't seen Kyle's missing daughter. I enjoy this moovie, because it shows not only persistence when she tries to convince people that she distinctly remember being with her daughter in that plane, but also a deep mother love.

Artificial Intelligence

In my oppion, the mother who people can love or hate. Because, Monica, the mother, has a child, but her little boy was sick and while their son was not at home, her husband wanna restart their lifes and obtain some happiness. To achieve that happiness, he got an idea, in this difficult beggining without their son at home, he decide to adopt a robbot who has real feelings. This robbot's name is David, he looks like the family's son.
In the beggining, Monica, can't accept a substitute for her son, but after some time she appearently starts to love him. But, when her son comes back home, the family simply forget him. And he, the robbot, journeys out in order to discover a way to become a real boy.
Mother's love for her real son is admirable, however, the act of abandon a creature with real feeling is awful. She mixes a lover mother and a sort of bad stepmother.

To be a mother of seven is never easy, specially when they've been delivered by another woman.

We think she is one of most worst mothers, because most of time she didn't take care of maggie and lisa. And she doesn't work to get more money to their sons.

Kyle Pratt from flight plan
Her dougther desapear in the middle of the flight and she freaks out. The persons on the flight start to think she is crazy because the name of her child is not on the passangers list. She looked out for her little baby all the film. We think that she is good example of a wonderfull mother because she never give up of finding her child even when nobody beleved on her. It's a good movie.

My favourite movie mom is Imitation of Life (1959). It is really a classic and the final scene, when the rebel daughter asks for forgiveness in her mother's funeral is quite moving.

Marge - Simpsons

Marge is a mother who is known for her strange blue hair. She is very patient and faithful. She's a mother that spends her time taking care of her children and housework. She is always with Lisa, her little daughter. She tries to protect her children from Homer who is always angry. Then, she is the one who keeps the family together.

Paula and Vitor - Brasília - Asa Sul said...

Let´s talk about Christine Collins, a mother who lived on 1928 in Los Angeles.
She had an only and beatiful child whom was her reason to live.
One day, when she back home, her child had desapeared. So, she became to look for him desperately and the police give her a child, a boy. But he is not her missed child.
She told the history to everybody, but no one believed her.
Thus, she knew that her child was taken by a serial killer, but she never knows if her son is alive or died.
But, like a good and carefull mother, she never stops to look for him, until the end of her life.
This the end of the movie: she never finds her missed son.
Through this movie, we can see the power of a mother's love, who never gives up to her son, never gives up to look for him, even against all the circunstaces.

Cristine Rose (Angela Petrelli) from Heroes

She is mother who has two sons that have very different personalities: one is a conservative senator of USA who can fly,and the other is radical paramedic at NY who can absover any power of another people. At the first moment, She doesn't seem to be worried about her familly and her sons. She is very futile and able to do unimaginable things like kill people who cross her way, but when she is in a bad situation, she worries about her familly, her actions, her choices and her desires.

We watched in Discovery Channel, a amazing documentary about strong female Momma in a group of lions. She was the one who lead the hunt and take care the puppies and she supouse to choose the male lion which have to be strong enough to protect the group and be the breeder.

She looks the best female lion on the group, used to be the leader. And when she dies, the group got lost. It's very curious how much important is the mother in wild life and the way that she teach the puppies how to hunt until they be able to do it alone.

Hi all,

We can not forget Spiderman's aunt, to be honest, we consider her like a mom, not just an aunt.
She loves and take care about him as a son, and give him good advices and directions about his life.
The movie show us how important is a mother in our lifes.
In a part of the movie, she told to Peter that he should forgive the man who had killed his uncle.
It has changed completely his life and actions.
We have to pay attention with the way that we speak and take care about our mothers that we love so much.
We would like to say hundreds words, however it is difficult to describe in a few words one person so special in our lifes, we have no words to say more. It is almost all.

It is like we usually says "Behind a great person there is a great mother".

Think about it.

Yours faithfully

Cazuza's mother - Lucinha Araújo - O tempo não para.
In our opinion, she was a bad mother because she didn't set him limits and let him anything he wanted. Because it he became a lasy and spoiled guy who used drugs and was drunk all the time.
As a result, he was a addict of drugs and alcoholic what enabled contracted the AIDS virus and died.

MARIA (Isabella Rosselini) from the movie "COUSINS"

Maria is a kind of mother that does everything to make her family happy. She doesn´t know how say "NO" whatever happens to her. Her life was a annoying routine. His husband is a man that has secret relantions with others women. Maria knows about it, but 'cause of her daughter she still believes that her husband is a good person, a good father that works a lot and do everything to the family happiness. On her cousins wedding, Maria met a dancing teacher, Larry. Maria and Larry became friends. He is her mother's nephew. In some days, she figured out that she could be a happy person doing what she likes to do still being a good mother.

The film Music and Lyrics, with Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant is, in my opinion, a must-see for everybody.The cast, the plot and the soudtrack are excellent. It is light, relaxing and slightly funny as well.
By seeing this film, I experienced a mix of fun and excitement, which means tears and laghter at the same time. As I wrote some time ago, it is so romantic and so sweet that some tears dropped from my eyes.
And the chronology I saw on the television screen at the very end made me wonder whether the group Pop really existed or not.
However, such a doubt did not alter what I thought about the film in question whatsoever.
There is also the song Way Back Into Love, which is very catchy, reason why it sticks in my mind every time I see the film this review is about.
