A Review of the "Mother's Day" Trailer

There are many things I regret spending time on in my 27 years of life:

- Playing "The Sims" so much and setting up ungodly scenarios for my characters.
- Writing "Frasier" fanfiction as a young girl (I married Niles btw, I guess in some other world, we have several kids by now. Happy birthday, David Hyde Pierce, love of my early childhood!)
- Most of the things I posted on Livejournal as a petulant teenager.

But among the things I regret is watching the "Mother's Day" trailer. Holy crap. Why did I do that to myself? I might as well have watched a candid interview with Gwyneth Paltrow about her lifestyle. It would have had the same effect.

Frickin' Gwyneth Paltrow. That's another can of worms for some other Sunday.

So I listen to a lot of Ted talks and Super Soul Sundays when I work or am at home. I find them really comforting. I'm also probably 40 when I'm not busy being 15 again.
And sometimes, I get these ads on YouTube that I just can't get rid of. Usually I'm able to skip after five seconds, but not all the times. I've listened to more advertisements for local car dealers than I care to admit.
The other night, the trailer for "Mother's Day" came on. At first I laughed. What is this Hollywood voodoo? Oh Kate Hudson! What has she been up to lately? Girl, so proud of you for dating Nick Jonas for a hot minute. SLAY.
And then I couldn't turn away. And I couldn't figure out, why? What's happening?
Julia Roberts. Jennifer Aniston. Kate Hudson. That guy who does all the really obnoxious voice0vers. GARY "Never Been Kissed," "The Princess Diaries," "Pretty Woman" Marshall.

This is going to be the most painfully delightful rom-com trainwreck of the year. I promise you. Unless Cameron Diaz is releasing something soon.

You all see where this is headed, right? YOU'RE WELCOME.
Are people going to see this movie? Yes. It looks very sentimental and fluffy, and some people really dig that. I mean, sometimes I eat Nutella. It happens. Will I see it? Hell NO.
I like the idea of this, really, but I feel like the whole formula started with "Valentine's Day" and that utterly forgettable New Year's movie and even almighty classic "Love Actually" have beat this to death. Like, I get it. Oh my god. A holiday, and people coming together. Yes, I believe in hope and love too, and I believe that Sandra Bullock will find happiness eventually. And I believe Nutella has no calories either. 30Rock's spoof was brilliant; that should have been the "mic drop" moment, but alas.
In conclusion: This movie will get 2 stars, my Mom will see it, and I'll pass it at Redbox come September.
I want my life back, Garry Marshall.
