In the spirit and heart of Mothers Day I thought I would highlight those who shouldn’t be receiving any flowers or cards this year! They can’t all be sweet and innocent like Mrs Gump or as protective and destructive as Uma Thurman in Kill Bill; so here is my list of the top five worst mums in films.
Everybody knows Stifler’s mum (Jennifer Coolidge) in the American Pie franchise. She isn’t exactly the best role model, sleeping with one of your son’s best friends on a pool table and adding a whole new category to porn, I think its only fair that she’s on the list!
A real classic Sunday afternoon children’s film, Matilda (1996) . Although she ends up having one of the best foster mums, her real mother Mrs Wormwood (Rhea Perlman) is the polar opposite. Cruel, neglectful and having one of the most annoying voices known to man, she’s definitely not mother of the year.
Hitchcock’s 1960 Psycho and Mrs Bates! Controlling and possessive she spirals her son into complete madness, being a constant nag and manipulative woman she is one of films most iconic horrible mothers!
Anne Ramsey or as she might be better known as, Mama Fratelli in The Goonies. Monstrous, dominating and foul she is responsible for the runaway criminal gang’s actions and the imprisonment of her Sloth like son.
The worst mother of all time however, is the crazy, manipulative and evil Margret White better known as the mother of poor Carrie White. Portrayed on screen by both Piper Laurie and Julianne Moore in Carrie (1967/2013) she is the most horrifying mother created, and its a good job Carrie gets her revenge with some magic knife throwing!
Hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to give your added extras! Enjoy Mother’s Day Mums!
