Albert Brooks directs and stars in Mother, a simply charming comedy about a man who wants to correct his problems by going back to his roots. John Henderson (Brooks) is a twice-divorced science fiction author who decides the only way to fix his relationship problems is to move back in with his mother (Reynolds).

Reason #92 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review is the only home theatre magazine that puts the reader first. All magazines must cater to advertisers to stay in business, but at WSR you never feel that this article or this review was generated because advertising needed a little boost right now. WSR also provides the depth that I like in its reporting and analysis. I still have every copy that I purchased and that's testament to my feeling of the statue of coverage of equipment and movies for the home movie enthusiast. The series on building the Holosonic Home Theatre was very thorough, and Iím currently using it as I build a new home with a theatre room that will closely resemble the one at your editorial facilities. Some of us do truly appreciate your dedication to doing it right. Thanks for producing an excellent magazine.
