She is not my aunt

This is a story of the relationships of five mothers and daughters that are not perfect. They all live in the same apartment building and this is similar to the semi-anthology films that take the names of holidays and try to come across as something clever and with a heart warming message. This film is no different.

Rigby (Selma Blair) is a photographer who loves black and white so it always looks artsy. We don't see much of her mother. Georgina (Mira Sorvino) is a bra designer. Gayle (Eva Amurri Martino) left her parents to help her man Kevin ( Paul Wesley) follow his dream. Layla (Alexandra Daniels) is a designer who wants to do things on her own and not take a handout from her mom (Sharon Stone). And Rebecca (Christina Ricci) well....her relationship to her mother is just so messed, it is not believable, although I am sure someone will tell me it happened to them.

The problem with the film is that it tries too hard to create feel good situations by creating faux drama, it felt forced. We never get attached to the characters long enough to feel anything with the

An entertaining movie that didn't deserve all the bad reviews

I must say I don't get why this movie is scored so low among audience and professional reviewers. I really did enjoy it. It isn't a funny movie, but it isn't listed as a comedy but as drama, so it is not misleading anyone.

I liked it because it is not very sensationalist and it is one of the movies that concentrates more on the feelings of people rather than actions. There are a lot of great small stories which all explore the relationships of mothers and daughters in a different way.

The cast of this movie is full with stars. One pretty much knows every person on the list. At least when it comes to the female actresses. And they don't disappoint when it comes to acting. I didn't recognize Mira Sorvino at all. And even after reading her name I had trouble seeing her in the actress. But then I think I remember her from about 20 years ago. Was also great to see Sharon Stone again. She was awesome.

Susan Sarandon plays the mother of her real life daughter, Eva Amurri Martino. Her performance is just one scene which was shot on Skype, of course as usual great acting. It is actually interesting how the movie shows all the characters constantly talking on video chats. it is part of modern life which shows constant keeping in touch yet distance.

One thing I didn't like was Selma Blair's romance. The way it developed and what he said towards the end....Jeez, seemed like some teenage girl wrote a fiction fairy tale.

And since there are so many stories there isn't much we get from them. i wish I could watch the whole movie about Courtney Cox and Christina's Ricci's part.

Still glad I watched the movie, it even made me cry. Mainly the moment of grandma's letter. it was so well written.

Bigger love

Not every movie has to be a highlight. Some can just be decent movies that have a more or less good feeling about them. This is one of them. It's about ... well the title is a bit of a give away isn't it? And yes you can expect drama to ensue. That's life and that's what this movie will be about. Question is: Is this the kind of movie you want to watch or are you looking for something more exciting? That's totally up to you then.

The actors do a good job and if you "like" watching life unfolding and get invested easily in characters you will have a good time watching this. With all it's highs and lows, you probably won't care about it lacking the something special. Buf if you do, don't be too harsh with this
