You probably know today is Mother’s Day. If you don’t, we would advise that you get out and do something about it right away.

To honor mothers everywhere, we’ve put together a list of our favorite movies and TV shows about mothers and the families that love them:

Modern Family: This hilarious TV show comes at the notion of family ties from a number of angles. Within this strong, award-winning ensemble cast are two standout moms: Julie Bowen’s Claire, who is trying to help her kids navigate the teenage years,and Sofia Vergara’s Gloria, who keeps her husband Jay (Ed O’Neill) young at heart.

Mother: Long before he was getting critical raves as a tough mob boss in Drive, Albert Brooks built a storied career writing, directing and portraying legendary neurotic characters, and often performing all three of those roles for the same movie. Mother, featuring the great Debbie Reynolds as Brooks’ mother, is the story of Brooks’ John Henderson as he moves back to live with his mother after a series of personal problems to work past his issues. The results are funny and heartwarming.
