Top 10 Best Movie Moms

May 08, 2013

Sometimes it takes a movie to remind just how great moms can be, from superheroes to homemakers, moms are great on film! Check out the Top 10 Best Movie Moms!

No.10: Rosemary Penderghast from Easy A

Easily the coolest mom to make it onscreen in any teen movie, Rosemary doesn't bat an eye when her daughter confesses to lying to the school about who she's been kissing to get more notoriety (and help some nerds), she just makes her daughter feel good about herself and helps her make a plan to come clean and still come out on top.

No.8: Sarah Connor from Terminator 2

When it comes to moms who kick butt in the movies, Sarah Connor has to be at the top of the list, she'll do anything to protect her son.

No.7: Miranda Hillard in Mrs. Doubtfire (Sally Field)

Even though this film is all about a dad finding a creative way to get back in his kids' lives, their mom is in control and on top of things from the start.

No.4: Erin Brockovitch (Julia Roberts)

Talk about a mom who can handle anything, hustling her way into a job at a law office and eventually helping a whole community fight an evil corporation, Erin Brockovitch pulled it all off while still raising her young kids using moxy, charm and most of all her smarts.

No.3: Elastigirl from the Incredibles (Holly Hunter)

When you realize how much your mom does for you, it's easy to start thinking of her as a superhero, and in The Incredibles the Mom, Elastigirl, IS a superhero.

No.2: Molly Weasley from Harry Potter (Julie Walters)

Molly Weasley is super mom, she knows all the tricks (magic or otherwise) that her kids are up to, and she loves them all equally, and that includes kids who aren't technically part of the Weasley clan - like Harry.

No.1: Tess Coleman from Freaky Friday (Jamie Lee Curtis)

You know your mom is cool and can handle anything when you end up switching bodies for a day and she doesn't completely ruin your life (in fact she kind of gets the hang of it...)!

when i was younger i liked the old Miley , but i don't now. And i don't like the new Miley, i think she's just putting herself and showing off too much of her body. i guess my answer is the old Miley, because she's better than the new one, in my opinion.
