BY ROGER FRIEDMAN

Let’s not blame Uma Thurman for mistakes made by others. A film she made called “Motherhood” debuted at Sundance two years ago–and had a tepid response. A few distributors bit, and Freestyle Releasing thought they’d give it a shot in America. Last October they sent “Motherhood” to theaters and made $90,000. Pheh.
