movie facts

Filming of Mother’s Day began in August 2015. It was officially released on April 29, 2016 by Open Road Films. The film quickly garnered $48 million worldwide, which is almost twice its production budget of $25 million. In addition, it claimed nominations at two essentially different award-giving ceremonies, Teen Choice Awards and Golden Raspbery Awards. This movie's format bears resemblance with Marshall's two previous romantic comedies that carry holiday themes: Valentine's Day (2010) and New Year's Eve (2011). Despite Mother's Day's production success, it did not sit well with its audience. It gained a low approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic. CinemaScore's poll of audiences resulted only in an average grade of B+. Film critics such as Richard Roeper and Peter Bradshaw also criticized it.
