So the Mother’s Day breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner, BBQ — whatever you chose to do as a pair or as a fam — is all said and done. You’ve given her your heartfelt card and accompanying Mother’s Day gift. What happens next? Instead of hopping in the car to hit the movie theater, why not pop a bag of popcorn — pouring a glass or two of wine or a mixing up a cocktail — and watch a movie together instead to truly wrap up the special day?
Now, instead of endlessly scrolling through Netflix, attempting to find something you’ll both enjoy, we’ve done the hard part for you and compiled a list of some of our favorite flicks. In the mood for suspense? It’s on here. Or how about a fun rom-com? Covered. Want a lighthearted animated film? We got you.
So pick the flick, settle in and have a relaxing rest of your Mother’s Day with the leading lady in your life.
