Mom of the Year (A Very Special Mother's Day Episode)

THIS WEEK: Mother's Day (1980), Mommie Dearest (1981), Grand Jeté (2022)

Some cowards only celebrate moms once a year. Here, we're dedicated to eschewing that silly Hallmark holiday and respecting mothers a week later when no one is expecting it. We're absolutely not late on this one I promise. So why not celebrate moms the best way we know how: With three of the finest and most upstanding mothers in cinematic history. No Wire hangers this week. Just a juicy slab of hicksploitation, a notorious flop, and some arthouse slop.
