    The fact that Stella Dallas (1937) was not even given an honorable mention is distressing! IT'S ONE OF THE MOST COMPLEX MOTHER/DAUGHTER FILMS, ESPECIALLY FOR ITS TIME!!!! It could be argued that it should be in the top 3 of this list @MsMojo redo this list please!

    I grew up on Mermaids, and Terms of Endearment. Steel Magnolias should have been an honorable mention at least.

    Mermaids should have been number one. It's just stellar. Not to mention, it had by far the best cast. Holler.

    Joy Luck Club should have been number 1. I've seen it 20 times and I still cry from the feather to the ending.

    Thank you for putting "Höstsonaten" at the top! A masterpiece!

    You missed Steel Magnolias. Yes, it is a good movie about the friendships between women but the heart of the story is the relationship between M'Lynn and Shelby

    Stupid list, although autumn sonata it worthy,as well as terms of endearment. Two women (la ciociara) should be on this list, it is a testament to a mothers love.

    No mention whatsoever of White Oleander OR Thirteen?!?!
    I am VERY disappointed.

    I never thought that "Autumn Sonata" by Ingmar Bergman starring Liv Ullmann and Ingrid Bergman will be included in this countdown since it is not really that popular here in the US (also I was not expecting that WatchMojo or MissMojo would know this film or appreciate it), so seeing this on the top spot really warmed my heart because it is one of my favorite film of all time. Thank ypu MissMojo… 😀

    M’Lynn gave Shelby her kidney, but you couldn’t give Steel Magnolias a place on this list
