Our Favorite Movie Moms

We know we’re a little late since it’s Mother’s Day somewhere around the world already, but we’re making this. We asked the YAM Magazine team who their favorite moms were — though we had to clarify that being a MILF didn’t qualify as a “good mom” —

Anyway, we all want to wish everyone who is a mother and all your moms a Happy Mother’s Day. If you can’t make them breakfast or help clean up whatever mess you make, at least sit back and watch a flick with her.

Okay, here are our favorite moms~


I loved Patricia Clarkson in Easy A!

How can we not with clips such as this:


Kick-ass mom: Sarah Connor xD

You gotta admit she shoots a lot, and blows up loads of things to save her kid.

Well-intentioned mom, but wacky kids: Etheline Tenenbaum~

  1. okay I love crazy mothers and thus would go with the mom from Harold and Maude and Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest.

      @Cinema Fanatic, if you mention Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest, we have to mention Mildred Pierce xD I gotta give it to Mildred… she slapped Veda on the right moment. LOL

    I think the best/most hilarious is Glynnis Johns in Mary Poppins!

      @Kendra, mother suffragists! xD

        @amy, So, cast off the shackles of yesterday!
        Shoulder to shoulder into the fray!
        Our daughters’ daughters will adore us
        And they’ll sign in grateful chorus
        “Well done! Well done!
        Well done Sister Suffragette!”

          @Juan Barquin, I have a confession.

          You know you liked Maria von Trapp? And since were talking about Mary Poppins… I always kinda wished that I had a mom as fun as Julie Andrews hahaha. Not her as Maria, not her as Mary Poppins… just Julie Andrews.

    Great collection of movie moms. Can’t really argue with any of them :) I might add Joan Crawford from Mildred Pierce

    Oh, Sarah Connor, what dedication she showed! Great list!

    Recently saw the film Mother – an interesting piece of work, definitely. Great performance by the mother.

      @Dan, I was really pushing (even if impossible) for an Oscar nod for her. There were four really great performances in Asia… one of them was Hyeja Kim for Mother which was finally legible in the US – then there was Jeong-Hee Yun on Poetry, Xu Fan in Aftershock, and Shinobu Terajima in Caterpillar.

      Except for Terajima’s all seem to fit that “mother type”.
