QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: Various people deal with relationships in their lives as Mother's Day approaches.
PLOT:
Sandy (JENNIFER ANISTON) is an interior designer who lives in Atlanta with her two boys, Peter (BRANDON SPINK) and Mikey (CALEB BROWN). She's hoping to land a job working for successful businesswoman and TV home shopping network pitch person, Miranda (JULIA ROBERTS), who's in town with her agent/manager, Lance (HECTOR ELIZONDO), promoting her latest book. But Sandy is thrown for a loop when her ex, Henry (TIMOTHY OLYPHANT), informs her that she's recently married the much younger Tina (SHAY MITCHELL), who Sandy worries will usurp her mother status with the boys.

Her friend Jesse (KATE HUDSON) has other concerns, in that she hasn't told her parents, Flo (MARGO MARTINDALE) and Earl (ROBERT PINE), that she's married an Indian doctor, Russell (AASIF MANDVI), who's never met them due to believing they've been long-institutionalized for dementia. But Jesse isn't alone in such deception as her sister, Gabi (SARAH CHALKE), who lives next door, likewise hasn't told their parents that she lives with her lesbian partner, Max (CAMERON ESPOSITO).

At the same time, ex-Marine turned gym owner Bradley (JASON SUDEIKIS) is still reeling from the military death of his wife in the past year. That's left him alone to raise their 16-year-old daughter, Rachel (JESSI CASE), and her younger sister, Vicky (ELLA ANDERSON), by himself. And bar waitress Kristin (BRITT ROBERTSON) still isn't sure if she wants to marry her bartender boyfriend, Zack (JAKE WHITEHALL), despite them being together for five years and having a daughter. As Mother's Day approaches, all of the above must contend with the various relationships in their lives.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
