I stumbled upon this movie titled "Crappy Mother's Day" by sheer random luck, and I decided to sit down and watch it, even though I hadn't heard about the movie. But I do like comedies, and since I hadn't already seen it, of course I sat down to watch it.
And I will just have to say that writer Bill Rutkoski and director Dan Karlok actually managed to come up with a rather enjoyable and wholesome movie here. "Crappy Mother's Day" was really a surprisingly good movie. Sure, I hadn't really much of any expectations for the movie as I sat down to watch it, so the writer and director had every opportunity to bedazzle and impress me.
The storyline here was pretty straight forward, albeit a bit simplistic. But it was exactly that which made the movie so watchable and enjoyable. This movie is all about the quirks and oddities that compile a family. And believe you me, the family portrayed in this movie definitely is out there.
What really made the movie work was the interesting character gallery. There were just so many great characters in the movie. And writer Bill Rutkoski really managed to come up with an outstanding character ensemble here, and they were rather memorable and loveable as well, so that worked so very well in favor of the overall enjoyment of the movie.
And it should also be noted that the casted actors and actresses in the movie to portray these lovely characters were nicely cast and they put on great performances in bringing the characters to life. I wasn't familiar with the cast here, but that is something I tend to enjoy, as I don't associate the actors and actresses with previously portrayed characters.
However, I do think that a movie like "Crappy Mother's Day" is something of either you like it or you don't. I don't think there is any middle ground here, as the movie is rather unique.
My rating of "Crappy Mother's Day" lands on a well-deserved six out of ten stars.
What a quirky family... (IMDB: 6)
