She does her best to treat the kids in a way that makes them still feel at home when being with their dad, but also loves her work and does not plan to give it up. But Jackie, a full-time mother, regards Isabel’s efforts as offensively insufficient. She can’t understand that work can be important to her as well as the kids. The conflict between them is deepened by the sudden diagnosis of cancer, which might may be deadly for Jackie. They all have to learn a little in order to grow together.
Plot: Jackie is a divorced mother of two. Isabel is the career minded girlfriend of Jackie’s ex-husband Luke, forced into the role of unwelcome stepmother to their children. But when Jackie discovers she is ill, both women realise they must put aside their differences to find a common ground and celebrate life to the fullest, while they have the chance.

I got Stepmom for Julia Robert’s performance, and I expected it to be pretty good. It did not fail me- it exceeded my expectations. This movie is beautiful.
It’s the story of a husband and wife with two kids who have fallen out of love, and now the father is getting married to a new, younger woman. The mother of the kids does everything she can to make her children hate this woman who is going to very soon be a permanent part of their life.
Julia Roberts indeed gives a fine performance as the fiancée of Ed Harris, the husband. She steals your heart in every scene she’s in as this young woman who is trying so hard to be exactly what those children want and need. And in the end, she’s searching for acceptance and love from them as much as they are from her. And then there’s Susan Sarandon, giving one of her best performances as the mother of the children who wants nothing more than to remove her children from The younger woman completely. Sarandon’s character is horrible- one of the most awful and hateful people in modern movies. She backstabs, she’s overly-critical, and for a long time, she finds every chance possible to turn her children against the other woman- yet you cannot help but feel for her. As nasty as she is, you sympathize with this woman who is having to deal with her children being in the care of a younger, inexperienced woman who is living with her ex-husband. It’s impossible not to understand her character’s mourning and confusion. For the first time in her life, this woman is not the only mother in her children’s life.
Don’t be surprised if you cry- more than once. It’s that good, and that affecting. Truly, this film is one of the better delights of the past few years. Beautiful story, great performances, real emotions- 8/10 stars!
Way too much. Way over the top.
I understand they’re going for weeper here, but come on. You get the impression that they’ll throw in anything just to make the audience cry. “That tearful farewell speech didn’t get to you? Really? Hmmm…let’s see. We could shoot that puppy Julia Roberts got the kids at the beginning of the movie, would that do it for you?” I think the film would have been much stronger had they not pushed the proverbial hanky quite so far. Which is a shame, because this movie had potential, but the sentimentality gets pushed to the ridiculous, and ruins any credibility it had with me.
