Movie execs hate mothers

You know who you are and you should be ashamed of yourselves.  Show me one movie for children where the mother survives!  (Notice there is no question mark.  I am having a rant and I don’t want to be proved wrong.)  Mom was eaten by something in Finding Nemo, I was too traumatized to watch.  Land Before Time, a movie for little children, and what were movie execs thinking--kill Mom first!  No happy reunion with mother in the happy valley.

Don’t make me write about Bambi.  I’ll have to bill you for tissues.

And if they let you keep your mother, you are going to have to shoot your dog! 

Mars Needs Moms, have not seen the movie, but I doubt many Moms survive to enjoy life.  What is wrong with this?  I don’t like it when mothers are doomed!  I object!

Then there are the moms who presumably croaked some time in the past. Like Cinderella's mom. Or Snow White's mom. But Peter Pan's mom was still alive.

We are all doomed! Just don't put it in a movie and make me watch. Just saw Rio and everyone survived, even Nigel, and I might not have minded seeing him squished.
