This might not be the perkiest movie to watch on Mother’s Day, but it will certainly make you appreciate the bond you have as mother and daughter.

It serves as a reminder that family life isn’t always easy and having the special mother-daughter bond you do is something to be grateful for each and every day.
No matter your age, this Academy Award-winning animated film is sure to please. Its positive, upbeat message about how you can overcome any obstacle so long as you believe in yourself and follow your heart will have you hugging and thanking your mom for her years of support before the night is through.

If you and your mom prefer suspense thrillers to romantic comedies, Panic Room might be the way to go. It might not have the cheery tone of the other films on this list, but its story of a mother who will do anything to keep her daughter safe when their home is broken into is an intense way to keep with the Mother’s Day theme.
Sex and the City
Sex and the City might not have been the type of movie you would have been eager to watch with your mom when you were younger, but now that you’re both adults, watching all the antics Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte get up to can be a lot of fun. Plus, checking out all their cool and quirky fashion choices isn’t a bad way to spend an evening either.
