The big problem is twofold: there are too many characters to keep up with, played by too many women who look too much alike.
First-time feature director Paul Duddridge seems determined to keep things superficial, while Paige Cameron's uninspired dialogue hardly helps.
Do mom a favor and skip it.
"Mothers and Daughters" is full of recognizable stars and heartfelt conversations. Unfortunately, it's largely devoid of the kind of character development that can give such conversations real impact.
Because so few movies focus on stories about women, it's incredibly frustrating to see this strong cast drifting away on a tide of soap bubbles - there's no movie here, just scene after scene of melodramatic cliché.
Somehow channeling the tone of both a Lifetime movie and an after-school special, "Mothers and Daughters" shambles into theaters oozing schlock and melodrama, just in time for Mother's Day.
It's a nice film, but most likely not to be remembered after it's opening day.
Mothers and Daughters has so many clichés about the meaning of femininity that it's hard to keep track.
There's no chance of genuine emotional investment in these characters amid the aggressively heavy-handed contrivances, trite platitudes and eye-rolling conflict resolutions.
Just in time for Mother's Day, a film you should take Mom to...if you hate her.
Some drinking, drugs in overwrought all-star drama.
It's like somebody has some kind of personal vendetta against Moms with all the crappy movies being made about them.
