Not bad! it was nice seeing Uma as a normal, sweaty, hard working Mom.
Kinda a predictable story, but I've spent 90 or so minutes watching much worse.
Just a simple, entertaining movie.

Compusurge | New York City | 11/18/2009

"Greenwhich Village, NY (specifically the west village) provides the backdrop for this totally fun romantic comedy about a mom who has to plan out one crazy, yet typical mom-day that in this instance includes tonight's 6 year b-day party, but also includes protecting her car, saving her bike, getting the right goodie-bags, befriending her friend (Minnie Driver)and of course writing her blog about being a mom. Whew....

Uma Thurman, in a role so entirely different than anything she's done before, plays 'mom' and is fantastic! Her relationship with her husband (Anthony Edwards) seem quite real-life in that he wants to be of help but hey... he is a man, right? There IS a bit of magic between them indeed and while it might not be on the scale of "Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan" (yet), it peeks through nonetheless and proves itself by the end of the film in a scene sure to win you over entirely. I could envision the two together in more films going forward...

Minnie Driver plays the perfect supporting role as 'insightful best friend' and while the movie runs along a somewhat predictable course at times, it also provides some very nice surprises and follows that formula that always wins while laying in some interesting insights into what it's like to be a mom. I can see the mommy-blogs launching new discussions for sure and a plethora of subjects. OK OK... I realize that I am not a mom, but I am married to one...

If you enjoy films like Moonstruck, Sleepless in Seattle, Mask, You've Got Mail and so on, Motherhood is a likely winner for you.

"Don't be fooled by that 5-star review. This could have been extremely funny, but it was not at all. I am a mother and think my day-to-day life can be humorous at times, but the humor is way too contrived and the actors are trying too hard to be funny. The whole thing made me cringe. My husband went to bed after 10 minutes, I should have gone with him."

"I loved this movie. The Norman Rockwell/"Leave it to Beaver" view of motherhood never worked for me. Life is a wonderful, funny, heartbreaking juggling act...and I think this film "gets it." As I've raised my brood in a rural community, I was amused and fascinated by the film's take on raising kids in the city. Overall...the film fascinated me...amused me...touched me. It was one of the better films I've seen recently. It's smart, and the humor comes out of irony."
