  • After his second marriage hits the skids, novelist John Henderson tries to divine the source of his problems with women by moving home and getting to know his mother all over again. The only problem is, she doesn't really want him there. As John tries to figure out why, as he puts it, she hates him, he also has to contend with his jealous younger brother, who can't stand to see him threatening his position as mama's boy. MOTHER is a bittersweet comedy from Albert Brooks, the master of urbane wit. Debbie Reynolds makes her first film appearance in years as Henderson's maddening but loving mother. Listen for the new lyrics to the Simon and Garfunkel song "Mrs. Robinson" in the film, penned by Brooks and coscreenwriter Monica Johnson.
