In honor of the upcoming celebration of maternal figures that is Mother’s Day, we at Wrapal have picked our favorite moms from film and TV! Our moms are better than your moms!
I mean, come on. What other mom helps keep a household of super-children and a super-spouse in order while also saving their lives and the world from the threats of Syndrome? Okay, that might have been a little too specific… but Elastigirl shows that moms don’t have to give up anything to stay super-heroes. And as nurturing as she is, she’s not afraid to suit up and kick some ass when those she loves are in danger.
Sarah gives Elastigirl a run for her money in the category of “Most Asses Kicked On-screen”, but definitely takes the cake as “Most Hardcore”. She cares deeply for her son John, but will not hesitate to viciously defend him and show why she is just as dangerous as The Terminator itself. If you want a mom that can protect you from time-traveling robot assassins, corrupt governments, and nuclear destruction, while also being a woman you can look up to, the only choice is Sarah.
She’s loud (But prefers “vivacious”), she’s proud (Of her kids!), and she just wants everyone to have a good time (“Mommy doesn’t drink, she just has fun”). Linda is dedicated to her family and would do anything to see them succeed and be happy. Linda is always good for some motherly advice or a wise adage, and is especially forthcoming with either if they’re in song form.
It takes a special kind of mother to love your kids when they look like hers, but Morticia Addams would do anything for her kids, especially when they’re being ghoulish. A homemaker, loving wife, and renowned gardener, Morticia is the kind of strong mom worth aspiring to, even if you’re not respiring anymore.
Dragon from Shrek
Who else but Dragon could find time to raise a gaggle of lovable half-donkey, half-dragon hybrids and still look fabulous? Out of all the moms on this list, Dragon really has the whole “mothering” thing down. I mean… no one does the “Stand By Your Man” thing better than someone who teams up with their spouse to swallow their nemesis whole. She picks up all the slack of her husband with a real fire-and-brimstone approach on the outside, but a loving heart of gold on the inside.
Where would your mom rank on this list? At the top of course!
Thanks for everything you do moms! We wouldn’t exist without you.
Stay tuned for Pt. 2 where we list all the top not-so-great moms!
