Mom - Sparkling Banter and a Failing Steel Town - Review: "Hugh Grant, Do Your Thing!"


It's Valentine's Day on Mom and unsurprisingly, things go sideways when the girls try and celebrate the special occasion.

Everyone but Bonnie and Christy has big plans. Wendy's scrubbing in on a transplant - a woman's getting a new heart on Valentine's Day! Tammy's riding shotgun with her boyfriend Yuri the Uber driver on one of the most profitable business nights of the year. Jill's going on her first date with Andy. (She's hoping to finally get to ride in the front of a police car instead of the back!) Marjorie's having a big night in with takeout and Notting Hill. But, Adam has to work and Christy's dateless, so Bonnie suggests they spend the holiday together.

That night, Marjorie and the cats settle in for movie night. But her quiet night doesn't last long before the phone starts ringing off the hook. First, there's Tammy. She thinks Yuri might want to do the deed in between pickups and after 7 years in prison, she's...well...freaked out. Marjorie tells her that if she doesn't feel like she's ready, she can just tell Yuri that. On to Notting Hill, right?

Nope. Wendy's next - just calling to make sure Marjorie doesn't feel too lonely before she heads into surgery. She assures Wendy she's fine and then begins to go back to Notting Hill. Nope! Jill shows up. She was having a great date with Andy with she ran into one of her ritzy bitchy friends from the club. Scared she'd be judged for dating "Andy the beer drinking cop" and not some white-collar millionaire, she lied and said that she and Andy aren't dating. He heard her and went home. Marjorie tells her that it doesn't sound like her friends at the club are really friends worth keeping.

And just when it seems like everyone's out of Marjorie's hair, Bonnie calls her up! Christy said that Bonnie and her crappy parenting are  the reason she's never fallen in love. Bonnie responds by telling her that she'll forever be alone because nothing is good enough for her. Marjorie advises Bonnie that telling someone they will be forever alone isn't the best idea and that she needs to try actually listening to what Christy has to say.

Armed with Marjorie's sage wisdom, the girls head out to make things right. Tammy decides she's ready to take the next step with Yuri and the two have a "soul-touching" experience in the Uber car. Bonnie apologizes to Christy for saying that she's going to end up alone and asks her to tell her why she thinks it's her fault she's never been in a good relationship. Christy says that she never saw a healthy relationship growing up because Bonnie was always bringing home different guys and none of them ever stayed around. Bonnie admits that she was a horrible role model when it came to relationships while Christy was growing up. Christy admits that she needs to let go of the past and stop dredging up bad memories. Jill goes to apologize to Andy but he tells her he only wants to be with someone who's proud to be with him "no matter who's looking."

Finally, the girls gather at Marjorie's house to recount the events of the night and poor Marjorie never does get to finish Notting Hill!

Random Thoughts:
-The free souffle proposal was too funny!

-Marjorie has the funniest looking cats!

-Best line of the night goes to Bonnie when talking about being in the Peace Corp. "It was a good way to cross international borders without many questions and a couple of villages got water so..." Only Bonnie ya'll!

Do you think Jill and Andy are really done? Let me know below!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
