Overview
She packed your lunch. Tolerated your music. And quietly looked forward to the day you'd be happily on your own. If anyone qualifies as unforgettable, it's Mom. And if there's a comedy that qualifies as hilarious, it's "Mother."

Albert Brooks is star, co-writer and director of this comic valentine about a twice-divorced author who decided the only way to fix his relationship problems is to move back to his childhood home and solve the problems he had with the first woman in his life - Mom (Debbie Reynolds, winning raves in her first starring role in 27 years). For laughs as only Albert Brooks can deliver, come home to "Mother." Also starring Rob Morrow and featuring Lisa Kudrow.
