Dial “M” For Mother!

This is a list that celebrates cinemas greatest mothers boys. They’re the characters that exude a very specific energy, one that is best explained by the fact that they say Mother in a really weird and unsettling manner. Alternate titles for this list include: films where people refer to their Mother with a capital M; films where people’s mums are legally called Mother; and that’s not a Martha, that’s a Mother! 

As an aside, Zack Snyder’s Superman is the exact opposite of the characters on this list, as he calls his mum “Martha” for some dumb reason.
