I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.
If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.
It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
Lovely when nothing's on tv and nice dose of humor
Dating my mother is a beautiful movie, beautifully shot and acted very well! Kathryn and Patrick are perfect as mother and son and the story was realistic and entertaining! Loved it!!!
This film manages to hit both deeply sentimental and absolutely hilarious chords, all while staying beautifully self-aware, fresh, true to itself, and playfully tongue and cheek. It's amazing and positively refreshing to see a film that satirizes online dating through a deeply genuine and comedic lens. We need more films that touch on the important themes of genuine intergenerational and intersectional dialogue, and I plan on showing Dating My Mother to my future children one day.
