    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    Crisply shot and surprisingly well acted, Mother's Day suffers from an overly long script (a tornado hovers off screen to no apparent purpose) and annoying glitches in continuity.

    Undistinguished apart from Rebecca De Mornay's performance as an unhinged mama.
