Buy a movie for Mom on Mother's Day for as little as $8

Fandango Now has made a list of the top films moms want to stream today. No. 1? Little Women.

Today is  Mother's Day , so I hope you've called you mom already and, if possible, you're planning a visit later in the day. One time-honored Mom's Day tradition is to relax on the sofa and let her choose a movie. Mother's Day isn't the right time for yet another viewing of Die Hard (that's for Christmas). Instead, Fandango Now has assembled a list of the top 10 movies about motherhood that moms want to watch with their family this weekend.

There aren't a ton of surprises in this list -- after all, moms don't typically want to watch The Matrix on Mother's Day (though truth be told, I was surprised to see Maleficent show up in this list). This is a pretty cheap night with Mom, since you can rent these films for as little as $3 (for the SD version -- HD and 4K rentals cost a little more). And a few of these films are on sale, so you can purchase them to own for $8, down from $14 or more.

Here's the top 10 motherhood movies according to Fandango Now:

Little Women (2019) - Rent $5 | Buy $15

Steel Magnolias - Rent $3 | Buy $8 (On sale through May 11)

Incredibles 2 - Rent $3 | Buy $15

Bad Moms - Rent $4 | Buy $10

Mamma Mia - Rent $4 | Buy $8 (On sale through May 11)

Maleficent - Rent $3 | Buy $15

Freaky Friday (2003) - Rent $3 | Buy $10

The Joy Luck Club - Rent $3 | Buy $105

Soul Food - Rent $4 | Buy $15

The Farewell - Rent $5 | Buy $8 (On sale through May 11)

Don't want to be tied down to someone's top 10 list? Here are a few other mom-themed movies that also happen to be on sale at Fandango Now through Monday:

Baby Mama  - Rent $4 | Buy $8 (On sale through May 11)

Erin Brockovich - Rent $4 | Buy $8 (On sale through May 11)

Lady Bird - Rent $4 | Buy $8 (On sale through May 11)

Mom's Night Out - Rent $3 | Buy $8 (On sale through May 11)

Terms of Endearment - Rent $3 | Buy $5 (On sale through May 11)

Happy Mom's Day!
