Watch Trading Mom
- 1 hr 22 min
Elizabeth, Harry, and Jeremy Martin are three everyday kids who are seeking attention from a mom who is working all of the time and constantly nagging them to get things done and behave. The kids lash out by getting trouble in school, one of them almost getting caught smoking, and other misdeeds that will make their mom pay attention. Of course, they don’t know that, they just think that they would be better off without a mom. Then the kids go to visit a mysterious gardener named Mrs. Cavour, who after a few minutes of talking gives the kids a spell that will make their mother disappear. Although, they don’t really believe it, the kids say the incantation later than night and when they wake up the next morning their mom is gone. The only drawback is that they have very few memories of their mom at all. Everything is fun until the kids realize that they need some kind of mother. They go back to see Mrs. Cavour, who tells them they can get a mom at the Mommy Market. The kids decide to set out for the Mommy Market and choose the mommy of their own liking. Through a set of madcap adventures the kids realize that no one measures up to the mom they had. They decide they want their own mom back, played by Sissy Spacek, and set out to find her. The only problem is unless they can recall a precious memory of their mom in a certain amount of time they will be stuck, and she will be gone forever. The kids finally realize that even after the choice of a snappy rich mom, a mom takes them camping, and a mom who is a clown and wants to just have fun, fun, fun, that their own nagging mom is the best mom ever and they want her back. Realizing that they are out of tokens to purchase a mom and finally realizing they need her above all of the others, the kids struggle to recall a memory of their own mother and bring her back.
