IMDB’s Top 10 Films (If They Were Written By Moms)

I got to thinking recently about how little time I have these days to actually sit and watch a movie. It’s even more difficult to sit and ENJOY a movie. The last film I took the boys to see at the theater was Beauty and the Beast, which was AMAZING, but the fact that I had to get up to take the four year old to the restroom TWICE and then had to combat his incessant whining about the movie being “boring” (SACRILEGE!) made it a little less than enjoyable.

I mean, moms are on call 24/7 when it comes to our kids. We are always on the go, trying to get them to appointments on time, picking them up from parties, cleaning their rooms and trying to force them to be good people whether they like it or not! But once in a while, it would be nice to sit back and watch a classic film without worrying what’s happening in the background.

Of course, it would be a lot easier to make time for a little movie-watching if the films were more relatable to our everyday struggles. Remember when Bad Moms came out? Yah… more of that please!

In the meantime, I thought I’d take a look at the IMDB Top Rated Films and see if I couldn’t make them more mom-friendly. Because… seriously? Representation matters.
