Day 331

movie: The Bad Mother's  Handbook
starring: Catherine Tate, Robert Pattinson
genre: Comedy, Drama,
year: 2007
format: online

plot: A woman's life if uprooted when she finds out that she is adopted and that her teen daughter is pregnant all in the same day.

This is a made for tv movie based on the book of the same name

Okay, I will admit, I watched this for one reason it's an early Pattinson film. As in his work pre-twilight.  Basically, the trailer and the poster lie.  He's got maybe ten minutes on screen in this whole film, and maybe about three lines. But, as you can see he's got top billing and the trailer is cut with almost all his footage. Which makes me think it was re-released after Twilight simply to cash in. 

The movie isn't even really about the teenaged daughter as much as it is Tate's character, of the self absorbed mom.

what do i think i learned from this film?
History tends to repeat itself
