Mother and Child, a movie about three different women, was quite bad, and here’s why. Most if not all of the characters were fairly uninteresting. Not only were the characters boring, but the stories were equally as unexciting. There was also a serious lack of intrigue, and it moved slowly. Finally, as I’ve said once or twice before, the fact that there were multiple stories hurts each individual one. For even if it were possible to become engrossed in one story, you wouldn’t stay that way for long because the movie switches to a different one every few minutes.

Special Features

I’m not sure whether to be glad or upset that there is not one special feature on this disc. No wait, I do know. I am extremely glad! It was hard enough for me to sit through the movie without wanting to shut it off and/or fall asleep out of sheer boredom, imagine how much worse it would’ve been if I had to sit through special features! I’ll tell you this much, it wouldn’t be a pretty sight.

Verdict: Forget It
