Eva Amurri Martino

In good news for people who love bad movies, the current trend of putting together projects that are named after holidays and feature the largest ensemble casts ever assembled seems to be continuing. Director Garry Marshall and New Line Cinema had so much success with their relationship compendiums Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve that some new players are looking to get into the game. Writer/director Paul Duddridge is all set to bring us Mother’s Day, a film that will examine the relationships of twelve different mother/daughter pairings. Not much is yet known regarding the specifics of Mother’s Day’s plot or character descriptions, but Deadline Astoria has all the latest scoops regarding the casting details. Already cast in undisclosed roles are the real-life mother/daughter duo of Susan Sarandon and Eva Amurri Martino, and joining them in keeping the theme of familial authenticity going are the newly cast team of Andie MacDowell and her daughter Rainey Qualley. Christina Ricci is also said to be signed, but there’s no mention of her real-life mother, so boo to her for ruining a nice theme.

It’s no secret that Adam Sandler‘s resume is studded with films that the critical mass has turned firmly against – of his thirty most recognizable starring roles, only four have managed to ring in as “Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, and his last run of films (including Just Go With It, Jack and Jill, Zookeeper, and Grown Ups) have signaled that Sandler the actor has no interest in continuing any of the thoughtful, nuanced work he turned in with stuff like Punch-Drunk Love and Funny People. If that’s how he wants to play, that’s just fine – Sandler’s career decisions are his own and good luck with them, but things have simply gone too far with his latest feature, the revolting, moronic, despicable, deeply unfunny, wildly offensive, and frankly disturbing That’s My Boy. Make your money how you want to, Sandler, but count me out of watching it – forever.
