The movie's huge cast also includes Julia Roberts Britt Robertson, Timothy Olyphant, Jason Sudeikis, Shay Mitchell and Aasif Mandvi. Garry Marshall directs.

The production provided a face painter and delicious King of Pops frozen treats for kids and families who had to skip playing in the park due to the filming. Isn't that the nicest thing ever?

"Mother's Day," about the stories of different moms that intersect on the holiday, probably will be released with some other name to avoid colliding with "Mothers Day," filming elsewhere right now.

Just to keep things extra confusing, "Mothers Day" also stars Jen's former "Friends" co-star Courteney Cox.

Marshall indicated his project will be the one to lose the "Mother's Day" moniker, telling The Hollywood Reporter: “Ours likely won’t be called Mother’s Day but I don’t know what the title will end up being.”
