Bad Moms

Bad_Moms_poster
We’ve previously had Bad Santa, Bad Grandpa, Bad Neighbours, now prepare for the Bad Moms. But can the antics of these bad moms provide good entertainment?

After suffering one completely awful day, over stressed and underappreciated mom Amy (Mila Kunis) suddenly snaps and quits the rigid PTA. Together with repressed stay at home mom Kiki (Kristen Bell) and slutty single mom Carla (Kathryn Hahn) the self confessed bad moms decide to let loose and start behaving badly.

Based on the trailer I didn’t have high hopes for this latest crude comedy. However I’m pleased to say that it was a movie that consistently had me chuckling away in my seat. If you’ve seen films like Bad Neighbours or Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates then you can imagine the sort of humour involved. While Bad Moms does involve many raunchy jokes it also takes some amusing swipes at the unrealistic expectations to be the perfect mother.

Even if, like me, you don’t have kids you’ll still find yourself relating and sympathising with the bad moms. While Kunis looks a bit too glamouress to convincely portray a stressed out mother she does make up for it by gamely throwing herself into the comedy. All the moms are good but the most memorable moments come from Hahn’s outrageous single mom and Christina Applegate’s mean mom.

Having already made over 100 million at the box office it wouldn’t surprise me if we end up with a Bad Moms 2 and this time around I’ll be looking forward to it.

Rating 3.5/5 -constantly funny with amusing performances
