Overview


Nobody has a perfect mother. And, despite what some pushy moms would have us believe, nobody has a perfect daughter, either. It's sometimes hard to communicate with each other, but what can you do? Should you turn to Dr. Phil, psychotropic drugs, a hit man? No! Here's the solution: It's so simple, so obvious, so painless---the movies!

Drawing on more than twenty years of watching movies together, real-life mother and daughter Rosemary Rogers and Nell Rogers Michlin offer plot synopses, cast reviews, and behind-the-scenes gossip for more than one hundred of their all-time-favorite movies, including invaluable ratings you won't find anywhere else, such as:

*Bonding Potential: Looking for serious mother-daughter time? Try one of their top picks, like Terms of Endearment, Freaky Friday, or The Joy Luck Club.
*Hunk Factor: Hannah and Her Sisters may only rate a 1 (Michael Caine and Woody Allen have other important qualities....), but School Ties, with a shirtless Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Brendan Fraser, gets a well-earned 10.
*Hankie Factor: Because sometimes we all need a good cry.
*Squirming in Your Seat Watching a Sex Scene with Your Mother/Daughter: Trust us, you'll want to know ahead of time.

Wise and witty, Mother-Daughter Movies offers a fresh perspective on life's most important issues---from family conflict to surviving high school to understanding when tweezed eyebrows can totally change your life.
