When I first watched the movie Bad Moms, I found it to be a modern take on what it means to be a good or bad mom. Mila Kunis plays the main character. While she won’t win any awards for spectacular acting, it’s a cute feel good movie for any mom. I’ve seen this movie a few times since it’s release. I feel like it’s one of those movies you can watch a few times. It’s definitely worth watching at least once. The storyline isn’t the best, but the jokes and visuals make it worth your while.
The kids are pretty funny in the movie, which I didn’t . I didn’t think the characters of the kids would be that fleshed out and developed. Christina Applegate plays one of the crazy PTA moms and she does such a wonderful job playing that character. She’s a great actress in general. However, Jada Pinkett Smith and that other actress whose name I don’t even know kind of take away from that aspect of the performance.
I was still working at the movie theatre when this movie came out, and there were so many angry moms upset with me because they couldn’t their baby to see an R rated movie. I had to repeatedly explain that it was due to policy, not content. It also got bumped to a smaller theatre several times for more popular movies that week and it sold out a lot faster.
I really liked this movie. I laughed out loud several times. This is definitely a movie you go see with your mom. I wrote this review just in time for the Bad Moms Christmas special, which I’m wondering why they decided to go with a Christmas theme considering Tyler Perry did 7 Madea movies before he made a Madea Christmas movie.
My Score: 7.5/10
