No one told me Motherhood sucked!
And by that, I mean the film starring Uma Thurman. There isn’t enough room here for me to go on a film rant, nor do I want to bore any of you with my opinion. I respect what It tried to do, as I respect all film and art, but this film was not what I was looking for when trying to pick up a few pointers in the Motherhood category, Or shall I say, Fatherhood category. Looks like i’m going to have to stick with the Holy Grail of all parenting films….Mommie Dearest! I kid, I kid.
Maybe it was the fact that I couldn’t get past Uma Thurman’s constant sweaty look and messy hairdo. I mean really, We know being a parent is tough, but do you really have to make Uma Thurman, with her cute little nose, perfect face, wonderful breasts, sexy librarian glasses, and her long model legs, look like a pathetic beatnik mommy type who forgot how to look in the mirror. The film just tried to cram way to much in a film revolving around 1 day in the life of a mother.
Living in NYC and seeing tons of moms on a daily occurrence I can tell you this, No matter how sucky your mornings been and how late your kid was up crying, most NYC mommies do their best in making sure they look like they just stepped out of the Sex and The City movie poster. And most of them pull it off great! But then again, maybe it’s the fact that I’ve seen Uma Thurman on various occasions out with her kids, and never has she looked hell bent like she did in the film. I just couldn’t get past the over dramatization of the mommy character. But what do I know. Either way, I tried to be nice in getting “chick flick” tonight for my wife to enjoy, but it fell short in the parenting 101 category. Even she hated it.
Being pregnant now, I’m seeking truthfully honest and real films dealing with the everyday struggles and joys of becoming a parent. Please, if you have any recommendations, do share. There’s only so much I can take of watching Mr Mom on my worn out VHS tape.
Have a good weekend everyone!

- kidsworkcancerlife said: OK, haven’t seen the film so can’t comment, but I take offense at your reason for not liking it. There’s too much pressure on women to do and be it all - yummy mummies are the unrealistic hollywood version. Most of us have crap hair days, often.
