In 2020, no one cares about Godmothers anymore, except, maybe, Eleanor (Jillian Bell).
Eleanor is the youngest in Godmothers class, which will be shut down in a few days for lack of interest. All the potential Godmothers that are taking the class will become tooth fairies.
Eleanor is having none of that, and searches the archives for a letter from someone, anyone, requesting help from a Godmother.
She finds a letter from 10 year old Mackenzie, and decides to be her Godmother even though her training has just begun, and she is not quite prepared. She also hopes to save the Godmother program from shutting down, if she does well.
Talk about pressure!
Arriving in Boston, Eleanor finds Mackenzie (Isla Fisher) working at a TV station…..BUT she is “old”…..with kids of her own: Jane (Jillian Shea Spaeder) and Mia (Willa Skye).
Luckily, the persistent Eleanor is up to the task of helping Mackenzie (and now her kids and sister Paula (Mary Elizabeth Ellis)) even if it is the last thing she does before becoming a tooth fairy.
What happens then is……oh, you will have to watch the movie to find out. 😉
“Godmothered” is a fun holiday movie with a message of perseverance and hope even as everything is looking grim. We also find out that you have to embrace change to remain relevant. We loved the soundtrack with classic songs from days gone by. Jillian Bell and Isla Fisher shine. Great for the whole family.
We watched this movie on Disney+.
