I have a new, favorite, over the top movie line.  “I’m a killer.  I’m also a mother.”  The fact that this was delivered straight-faced gives me a whole new appreciation for Jennifer Lopez as an actress.  Just in time for Mother’s Day, Netflix is set to release her all-new action flick appropriately titled, “The Mother.”

According to UPIThe Mother follows a deadly former assassin (Lopez) who comes out of hiding to protect the daughter she gave up years before. The pair must work together while on the run from dangerous men.

Okay, so it’s not exactly “Terms of Endearment” when it comes to the deep dive into a mother/daughter relationship, but I’m all in on “The Mother.”  I mean, I’ve probably sat through three to four thousand films with this same plot with a male action star, so why not?  And, since it begins streaming during Mother’s Day weekend (May 12), I can tell my wife we’re going to be watching a “mom movie” to celebrate. <g>

Oh, I mentioned at the start my favorite over the top movie line.  After careful consideration, it’s always been a tie.  First up, Clint Eastwood as the legendary “Dirty Harry.”

You’ve got to ask yourself one question, “Do I feel lucky?”  Well, do you you, Punk?  How great is that?  Still, almost 50 years later, Dirty Harry delivers.

Now, as good as Clint Eastwood is in performing that scene and saying that line with zero hint of a smile.  There truly may be no equal to this moment in the laughably absurd “Armageddon.”

“The United States government just asked us to save the world.  Anyone want to say no?”  God bless Bruce Willis.  That line is so deliciously preposterous that I feel it should be included in every action movie from now on.  I mean as outrageous as “The Mother” promises to be, how much more would it be with J-Lo uttering THAT phrase?
