This is an interesting finding.  Sons and daughters have spoken. In celebration of moms – both real and fictional – Netflix fans on Facebook voted on the good, the bad and the uncomfortable when it comes to movies and moms.


  • Favorite movie mom: 35% root for supermom Holly Hunter in The Incredibles
  • As seen on TV… Gilmore Girls’ Lorelai and Rory grabbed 59% of votes to top the charts as the favorite TV mother and daughter duo – compared to just 4% for Carol and Marcia Brady
  • Move over Mommie Dearest, Mary Jones in Precious is the worst movie mom ever at 38%
  • Warning: Mother discretion is advised. 46% would be horrified to watch Bruno with their own moms, beating out American Pie at 25%


The rest of the full poll and results, based on more than 3,300 responses, can be seen on Netflix’s Facebook Page.

About The Author

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED. Adriana is also the founder of and an established fashion/portrait photographer.
