Not unlike Ali MacGraw in the equally apocryphal Love Story, the closer our heroine inches toward death's door, the more physically attractive she becomes. Phooey!

This is an old-school tearjerker, designed to get audiences sniffling in the dark.

June 17, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Long before anyone in "Ma Ma" expires, the movie does.

June 2, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

"Ma Ma" clearly wants to be tearjerker, but there's no need to have tissues handy for this one.

June 1, 2016 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Though it stars the versatile, always watchable Penélope Cruz, who shows an expected flair for charismatic saintliness, even she can't rescue this impossibly beatific melodrama.
