A couple weeks ago I attended a MAMARAZZI® event hosted by The MOMS & FUJIFILM INSTAX. I got to watch the new film Mother's Day at TCL Chinese Theater and sit in on a Q&A with Britt Robertson and Director Garry Marshall to chat about their new movie.
Mother's Day features an all star cast with Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Julia Roberts, Jason Sudeikis and according to Gary Marshall - the new upcoming star, Britt Robertson.
The movie follows several story lines. All stories that Mom's everywhere can relate to, including a young Mother, a Divorced Mother, and a widower. The film also touches on same-sex parenting, inner-racial parenting and some of the issues that come along with that. But, don't worry it's not too deep. Mother's Day has a lot of light hearted, silly moments that will make you laugh and maybe even remind you that as serious as life may be, you still have to laugh at yourself and enjoy all of life's little moments.
I have to admit, I didn't know I was such a Britt Robertson fan. I loved her in the way too short lived series, Life Unexpected and in the movie Ask Me Anything. I have yet to see Tomorrowland, but it's on my list to watch soon. She had a big role in Mother's Day and director Gary Marshall mentioned that he likes to find young talent such as Britt and give them a shot to shine in something big.
I loved hearing Gary Marshall talk, I could listen to him talk all day. During this Q&A, he talked about why he likes to make movies with a mostly female audience. Because according to him, women are much more complex and interesting. I couldn't agree with him more. The relationships alone in the film really show how complex the lives of women and Mother's really can be.
These FujiFilm INSTAX cameras are so fun! I've been carrying mine around with me in my purse for a couple of weeks now, and I love being able to capture silly moments. I have a bridal shower coming up later this month and my FujiFilm INSTAX is going to be a cool way to keep and share memories.
This was a fun group shot of the MAMARAZZI® if you are looking for me, I'm standing directly behind Gary Marshall. Check out the trailer for Mother's Day below and then get out and see it. Make a date of it, have your husband take you, take your Mom, go with your friends or go by yourself. Enjoy.
