Best and Worst Mothers in the Movies

Jamie Lee Curtis in Freaky Friday

In honor of Mothers' Day, I'd like to present my inconclusive list of "The Best and Worst Mothers in the Movies."


Renee Zellweger in Jerry McGuire

Julia Roberts in Erin Brochovich

Jennifer Aniston in Marley & Me

Jennifer Lopez in Enough

Sally Field in Not Without My Daughter


Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest

Shelley Winters in A Patch of Blue

Mary Tyler Moore,in Ordinary People

Louise Latham in Marnie

Annette Bening in American Beauty

Do you have any to add to the list?


  1. Great pic of Faye Dunaway. Classic stuff. lmao the mom in Ordinary People reminded me so much of my own mom that I can't watch that movie. I've only seen it once and that was enough; it hit too close to home. I'd also add to Good Moms, the one from 'Easy A'. She was great.

    1. JoJo: I agree, Ordinary People hits close to home for many people. I related to the father in that movie...I found myself trying to make peace between my husband and our daughter. I thought he was too strict and I over compensated by being too lenient.

  2. A very fitting and fun post! Jamie Lee also gets worst mom for Mother's Boys - check that one out!

    1. Never saw that one. Motherhood definitely has it's good times and bad times...
