Help me! What is a fun completely happy and also easy to snark at movie that would be appropriate for Mother’s Day? Doesn’t even have to have a “good” mother in it.
Here’s what I can think of, which isn’t the best:
Pyaar Impossible (Prime)
Terribly catchy songs, Uday Chopra looks like a frog, Priyanka convinces no one in her abilities as a mother or a career woman, and yet it just makes me smile.
It’s soapy and ridiculous and extremely inaccurate, but maybe that just makes it more fun to make fun of? There’s a scene where she sets fire to her mansion in a drunken stupor, and then carries out the wine bottles instead of HER DAUGHTER. It’s that kind of movie. And I refuse to take it seriously, join me in snark.
Baar Baar Dekho (Prime)
Katrina is a regular life kind of Mom with a spouse who has checked out of parenting a bit, and does a great job with it. Also, there’s time travel.
I’m not in love with any of those choices, although they are fine I guess. Give me more ideas! Or tell me that you are in love with one of my ideas and we should do that one!
(and no Irrfan or Rishi, I’ve decided it’s too depressing, with the exception of maybe 1970s Rishi movies because they have a natural joy that will carry us through)
