Stream these 4 movies on Hulu with your mom on Mother’s Day

Ask a mom what she wants most for Mother’s Day, and she’ll probably say “more time with my kids.” This year, give Mom what she wants by planning a night of video streaming and snacks for just the two of you – no other kids, no phones and no distractions. If your mom is the type to say “we can watch whatever you want,” then that means it’s time to come prepared. Luckily, there is an abundance of Mother’s Day-appropriate movies available to stream on Hulu, and we’ve rounded up our favorites.
