After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers go home to hideout...only to discover that their Mother (Rebecca De Mornay) lost their house in a foreclosure.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Stuffed with secrets and characters who can't wait to betray one another, the film offers no one to root for except Mother, whose perverted family values at least remain consistent."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Mother's Day is distinguished, at least, by De Mornay's porcelain-smile lampoon of castigating matriarchy."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"A rather underwhelming remake..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"As written by Scott Milam, the characters are a bunch of half-wits."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A sloppy, ugly, illogical story mixed with graphic torture, attempted rape and grisly violence. Mother's Day is a film only a mother could love."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"The ready crackle of [De Mornay's] studiously demonic performance brings welcome distraction from this otherwise crude litany of torture and wretched death."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Undistinguished apart from Rebecca De Mornay's performance as an unhinged mama."
‑ Charles Gant, Variety
"Mother's Day is just as forgettable as whatever day Mother's Day actually is."
‑ Ali Gray,
"Reactions will be split down the middle, depending on the viewer's endurance for tough material, but no one can say the filmmaker didn't achieve what he set out to."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"full review at Movies for the Masses"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Notable for a chilling lead performance from Rebecca De Mornay and not much else."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"Excruciatingly misguided."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Gets too distracted by the by-the-numbers story to go explore any of the ideas it actually raises."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"A home-invasion film like Mother's Day is elongated coitus interruptus."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
"The production overstuffs the script, making one wish not for the hostages to gradually squirm their way to freedom, but for Mother to hurry up and just kill everyone."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
