I did not expect to like this series--let's just say I have a few mother issues of my own and leave it at that--but Anna Faris as the beleaguered Christy is irresistible and if Allision Janney is not yet considered a National Treasure, well, it's only a matter of time. She is a phenomenal actress and her chemistry with the wide-eyed, winning Faris is undeniable.

Janney's characterization of Bonnie Plunkett is so good, so true, there are moments I cannot stand her. But I always forgive her; I recognize in Bonnie a wounded survivor who is all too human in her faults and frailties. That is Janney's genius--somehow she makes the abrasive Bonnie redeemable, even lovable, even when she's at her worst.
