I can't help but notice how very many children's movies there are where the main character's mother is either dead, killed off, or not mentioned in the movie. The following are the movies that I can think of off the top of my head:

Beauty and the Beast
Brother Bear
Chicken Little
Finding Nemo
The Little Mermaid
Sleeping Beauty
Snow White

These are just the ones I can think of right now, there's plenty more kids movies I don't have in front of me, but it seems like some kind of weird trend.

What do they have against mothers??

Humm, good point..I never really took notice to that before..

I guess with your being a mother, something like that would stand out to you.

If you want to cry like a baby watch'"The promise" it was set in the 1930's 40's I think there are 5 or 6 kids the mother dies of illness and the kids are ripped off the father and sent to different foster homes, then it's all about him trying to get them back if you don't cry in it you have no heart.

Maybe they want kids to appreciate the fact that they have a mother?
