There are a lot of excellent movies you can watch with your mom that does not have a lot of sex, violence, or language.

The Other Sister

This movie stars Juliette Lewis as a mentally challenged young woman who tries to escape the overprotective grips of her mother. Juliette’s character, Carla, is very high functioning and wants to experience life to its fullest. Viewers watch as she goes to college, falls in love with a boy who is also mentally challenged, and moves in with him to the mom’s horror. The story shows a mother’s realization that she must let go and that no matter who you are and what your limitations seem to be.. you can experience joy in life.

Where the Heart Is

This tear jerker is about a 17-year old girl, Novalee, who is pregnant and abandoned by her mother and boyfriend. She ends up giving birth in a Wal-Mart – where she has been secretly living for the past few weeks. She goes into labor late one night and a young man breaks through the window to save her. With a new baby girl, no money, no job, and no place to call home, Novalee relies on strangers who become her family. A story about how the extreme downs of life can turn around to be the best blessing you could ever ask for.


Jennifer Lopez plays Selena and the movie is based on the true events and life of the singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez, who rose to stardom in both the American and Mexican music scene. The movie goes through her childhood, the struggle to make it in the music business, falling in love with guitarist Chris Perez, and her tragic murder by the president of her fan club.


This hilarious romantic comedy stars Goldie Hawn as a spoiled rich woman and Kurt Russell as a struggling carpenter who is also a single father of 5 boys. The carpenter is hired to build a shoe closet on the rich woman’s boat and she ends up firing him and not paying him for trivial, ridiculous reasons. She then throws him overboard. Then, she accidently falls overboard that night and has amnesia. She is rescued, but her husband does not claim her. So, the carpenter develops a scheme and tells doctors that he is her husband and works her like a slave at his run down home. Eventually, they fall in love, but then, she regains her memory and her real husband comes to collect her. A beautiful love story wrapped around hilarious scenes.
