Mother's Day is this Sunday!

If you're lucky enough to be spending Mother's Day with your mam this year, here's some movies you can watch to mark her special day.

Mamma Mia! 

Honestly, how could you not? Meryl Streep plays Donna, an independent hotelier in the Greek islands preparing for her daughter's wedding with the help of two old friends.

Meanwhile Sophie, the spirited bride, has a plan. She secretly invites three men from her mother's past in hope of meeting her real father and having him escort her down the aisle on her big day.

Joy

A rags-to-riches story that Jennifer Lawrence scooped a Golden Globe for, Joy centres on Joy Mangano, a divorced mother of two, rises against all odds and sets up a successful business empire.

Dumplin'

Starring Jennifer Aniston and Danielle McDonald, Dumplin' is a coming-of-age movie with a twist - Dolly Parton tunes!

Willowdean, an overweight teenager of a yesteryear beauty queen, decides to participate in her mother's Miss Teen Bluebonnet pageant to prove a point.

Step Mom

Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon star in this classic drama that sees Roberts' character's try to bond with her fiance's children, much to his ex-wife's dismay.

Wonder

August, a boy with a rare facial abnormality, enters the fifth grade in a private school where he befriends Jack. The two form a strong bond while facing the bullies in their class.

Starring Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson - grab the tissues!

Moxie

New from comedian Amy Poehler, Moxie sees high-schooler Vivian embark on a crusade inspired by her mother's rebellious past.

Bridget Jones's Diary

A rewatch of this will allow you to settle the age-old debate with your mother - Mark Darcy or Daniel Cleaver?

Burlesque

Ali (Christina Aguilera( leaves her job as a waitress to pursue a career on stage. After failing the audition, she wanders into a club where, after a long struggle, she not only becomes a lead dancer but also a singer.

You'll forgive the slightly predictable plot because of how campy and fun it is.
