When Garry Marshall’s “Mother’s Day” hit theaters this year, it was met with a deafening chorus of boos; that is, the critical reception was largely negative. Did the movie deserve such a thrashing? Is there something redeemable within it?
That is a tough call, beauty being in the eye of the beholder and all that. However, now that Josh is beholding the movie, he looks to see if he can find any beauty within.
The results of his long, hard, examination of the film? It has some redeeming qualities. No, he wouldn’t call it great and he’s thrilled that he didn’t spend a small fortune to go out to the theater to see it, but it definitely has some redeeming qualities. The “Humpty Dance,” however, is not amongst them.
