It's not remotely intelligent, entertaining or thought-provoking.

Gets too distracted by the by-the-numbers story to go explore any of the ideas it actually raises.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

An often mind-numbing exploration of what it takes to be violent towards your fellow human beings.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

The brutality is hard to stomach, the characters are paper thin and unlikeable and the camerawork is often annoyingly shaky.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Mother's Day is just as forgettable as whatever day Mother's Day actually is.

A home-invasion film like Mother's Day is elongated coitus interruptus.

There are moments of tension but it's too long, no one to like and the ending is pointlessly grim.

Undistinguished apart from Rebecca De Mornay's performance as an unhinged mama.

A colossal misfire that offers nothing to viewers but unimaginative, distasteful brutality.

The production overstuffs the script, making one wish not for the hostages to gradually squirm their way to freedom, but for Mother to hurry up and just kill everyone.

Notable for a chilling lead performance from Rebecca De Mornay and not much else.

As written by Scott Milam, the characters are a bunch of half-wits.

It's depressing to think that anyone might actually enjoy this heartless, soulless and witlessly exploitative trash.

A sloppy, ugly, illogical story mixed with graphic torture, attempted rape and grisly violence. Mother's Day is a film only a mother could love.

Stuffed with secrets and characters who can't wait to betray one another, the film offers no one to root for except Mother, whose perverted family values at least remain consistent.

The ready crackle of [De Mornay's] studiously demonic performance brings welcome distraction from this otherwise crude litany of torture and wretched death.
