Consensus: Arguably well-intended yet thoroughly misguided, Mother's Day is the cinematic equivalent of a last-minute gift that only underscores its embarrassing lack of effort.

Even if stars Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and Kate Hudson are mom's all-time favorites, don't subject her to this cloying, plotless dose of saccharine unless she's done you wrong.

It's fine that the makeshift trilogy (please, let it only be a trilogy) is a simple-minded ode to love meant to send everyone home happy. So why doesn't it actually send anyone home happy?

So kudos, I guess, to Roberts for standing by her man i.e., the man who handed her a career. But please, let's consider the debt paid. Her fans can't take another one like this - and neither can her career.

As flimsy and trite as a Hallmark card.

It does inspire the kind of holy terror that you feel all the way down to your bones, or the revolted tingling that strikes one at a karaoke performance gone tragically wrong.

There is less depth to this film than a petrol station greeting card, but it's essentially harmless.

Mother's Day might be trying to show how diverse and progressive it is in representing every kind of family, but it's a laugh track away from Three's Company levels of subterfuge.

"Mother's Day" is a total mess, but what's truly offensive is that they didn't even try to make this cynical, post-Sunday brunch cash grab even remotely watchable. Your mom deserves so much better this Mother's Day.

It's trite, it's dumb, it's woefully unpleasant, it's racist, and it's a shame this is the note Garry Marshall has to go out on.

This was not as bad as I thought it would be. Comfortable predictable yet still enjoyable to watch.
