Throw Momma from the Train While You're At It
Some of these are no-brainers, I mean Postcards from the Edge and Terms of Endearment and The Joy Luck Club. Right. Gotcha. But Star Wars Episode Three: Revenge of the Sith?
Why not Exit Wounds or Hostel—other examples of torture? Why not Spaceballs for that matter? (Or should that be seen only with Dad?)
The explanation given by the MSNBC writers is that, in the prequels, we learn that Princess Leia was merely "following in the footsteps of her mother, Amidala."
This is what we in the medical profession call strained.
And where is Mommie Dearest?
Nevertheless: Here is a list of "Seven Films Mothers Should See With Their Sons":
1. The Jerk
2. The Krays
4. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
6. Five Corners
7. Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot
Some people may ask, Why? Others may ask, Why not? And still others just drone on and on and on until you want to stick their head in a pea sheller and do your time like a man . . .
Happy Mother's Day.
