In its deceptively modest way, this edgily sweet comedy gets closer to the bone of mother-son relationships than many a more solemn opus.
Brooks has created his best work so far. His oddball comedy has sometimes missed the target, but with Mother he has chosen an ancient theme and given it a smart, modern spin.
Not only will you laugh at someone else's pathetic problems, it'll save you money on therapy.
It wasn't the automatic laughter produced by slam-dunk punch lines, but the laughter of recognition, of insight, even sometimes of squirmy discomfort, as the truths hit close to home.
For the most part its droll humor rubbed me the right way despite its pat facile conclusion and all the product placements.
The best foreign language film of 2010.
For people who believe that a grown-up son can never go home again, Brook's serio comedy, one of the few Hollywood pictures dealing with mother-son relationship in a poignant way, came as a surprise; Debbie Reynolds in a comeback turn is great.
Off-putting and uncomfortable ... but still pretty funny.
The clash of personalities that ensues produces some truly hilarious moments.
Good, not great Brooks, but Reynolds is a riot
Brooks has always been a second-rate Woody Allen to me. This is a second-rate Brooks' film.
Another low-key classic from Brooks
It was good to see what inspired Danzig to write his biggest single.
humourous..toned-down Albert..some good one liners..
