Movie review: Tully

Since Charlize Theron won an Oscar for Monster it should be a no brainer for the academy to grace her with a second gold statue for Tully. You should know Charlize gained 50 pounds for her role, stating she wanted to stay true to her character of Marlo. That alone should be reason enough for her to rule at every awards show this next season.

This is a great movie for this Mother’s Day weekend. Don’t let the R rating dissuade you from seeing Tully. There was one very short scene with mildly explicit sex, and trust me, you’ve seen much worse on television. There is a great deal of strong language, but this is a movie about an overweight, frustrated, exhausted, and ‘at her wits end’ wife and mother with three children, with a husband who seems to be off in his own little world.

As mothers, which of us have not found ourselves standing in a parking lot, gazing upward and praying for just a moment of peace?

Grade: A

RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, we never would have lasted a decade as an app. She’s our cheerleader, a source of unconditional love. She also works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice include kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers.
