When I think of Movie Mothers the first one that comes to mind is the mother from "Only the Lonely". This is an excellent movie and although not really meant to be a mother movie the mother is very important to it. Without her the movie would not be the same. Of course Maureen O'Hara came out of retirement to do the movie. If you haven't seen it I would recommend it. She plays a stereotypical Irish Catholic mother. I think the other that comes to mind is the original "Yours Mine and Ours" with Lucille Ball. This movie really shows what motherhood and family are all about. Lucille Ball is excellent in there. For those who may not know it Lucille Ball plays a widow with 8 kids who meets and ends up marrying a man who is a widower with 10 kids. They recently did a remake and it is one of the few remakes that I did not care for.

Oh I have seen many good remakes over the years. "Angels in the Outfield", "Freaky Friday", "The Parent Trap", "Man in the Iron Mask" and "Mighty Joe Young," to name just a few.

While it isn't completely about motherhood, I would have to choose Steel Magnolias. Absolutely love that movie!

Hi there Sarahruthbeth! My favorite film about mother is Stepmom which stars Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon. I love drama and I think that it is a great movie.
