The film itself is destined to be one of the year's absolute worst efforts and easily the worst of Marshall's long career.

This movie is watchable on a Sunday with your mom.

The thing that prevented it from just totally tanking for me was that the spirit in which it was created and delivered was so earnest... they were just having fun.

We expect more fun from Garry Marshall, one of our favorite directors.

I had high hopes for this move but that soon went away 30 minutes in.

Mother's Day is a feel-good movie and it makes for a good one-time watch.

With previous dreck such as 2010's "Valentine's Day" and 2011's "New Year's Eve" one can imagine what other arbitrary calendar concoction that Marshall can lazily muster up to showcase as a companion piece to his string of hapless holiday treats?

Audiences who like a shred of cohesive story telling or characterization, or even a chuckle during a supposed comedy, should stay very far away.

There are a couple of nicely barbed lines, but this is a film so syrupy on the whole you may want to keep hold of that empty popcorn bucket lest nausea strikes.

"Mother's Day's" attempts at being funny miss the target by a long shot and to be blunt, it is downright boring. Saying the film is an underwhelming catastrophe is an understatement.

[The characters are] all put in such preposterous situations with such confusing timelines that the suspension of disbelief rapidly becomes too much work.

There's drama and humor, but not enough to keep your attention for the two-hour running time. The film meanders aimlessly in the last half hour, attempting to tie up the loose ends.

It's a tad unfortunate to see Aniston hamming it up to the high heavens, doing what she has been doing in rom-coms since, well, forever.

Apart from the pretty faces and the challenges of raising kids, there's nothing really that would connect with any of us.

No one is actively bad but the film still manages to hit so many jarring notes.

I recommend Mother's Day to no one, unless you happen to despise your mother and are looking for a passive-aggressive way to communicate your loathing to her.

If you like your films light and bright, without pause for any of the authentically raw emotions that would naturally be associated with any one of these story lines, then go on, take your mum and go see Mother's Day.

This doesn't come across like the kind of movie anyone would want to take their mothers to as a sign of appreciation for giving birth to them. Enough already, Mr. Marshall.

It's hard to convey what a deeply, deeply cynical film this is.

So kudos, I guess, to Roberts for standing by her man i.e., the man who handed her a career. But please, let's consider the debt paid. Her fans can't take another one like this - and neither can her career.
