List: 10 Most Memorable Movie Moms


Yesterday’s post about Tilda Swinton’s gripping new movie-mom role got me thinking about the other stellar mom-depictions on the big screen. So without any further delay, here are my 10 Most Memorable Movie Moms, spanning the spectrum from monsters to martyrs:

1. Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest: the glad-she’s-not-my mom.

2. Jodie Foster in Panic Room: the kick-ass protector mom.

3. Bambi’s Mom in Bambi: the sure-to-make-you-cry mom.

4. Kate Winslet in Little Children: the conflicted mom.

5. Shirley MacLaine in Terms of Endearment: the can’t-let-go mom.

6. Holly Hunter (above) in Raising Arizona: the felonious wannbe-mom.

7. Diane Keaton in Baby Boom: the fish-outta-water mom.

8. Diane Wiest in Edward Scissorhands: the redemptive adoptive mom.

9. Sissy Spacek in In The Bedroom: the angry, grieving mom.

10.¬†Jennifer Coolidge as Stiffler’s Mom in American Pie: the yeah-baby, moms-can-be hot mom.

Who’d be on your Top Ten?
