A Bad Moms Christmas (2017)



Critic Consensus: Featuring twice the moms but roughly half the laughs, A Bad Moms Christmas is a slapdash holiday sequel that falls short of the original with a disappointing dearth of good cheer.

By the end of the journey, our moms will redefine how to make the holidays special for all and discover a closer relationship with their mothers.

... a stale old chestnut.

For festive fun, A Bad Moms Christmas is right up there with coal in your stocking.

November 2, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

"I have heart cancer," Ms. Hines's character says at one point in a vain attempt to halt her daughter's complaints. I think I know exactly what she meant.

Apparently, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, working the distaff side of their Hangover sensibility once again, have no better idea for a plot than a visit from grandma, so they simply repeat it three times.

November 2, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Although it offers occasional chuckles and even a few solid, laugh-out-loud moments, the picture as a whole seems redundant and superfluous.

Maybe they should take a lesson from the movie itself: Stressed out moms deserve better.

Audience Reviews for A Bad Moms Christmas

I'm not much for American comedies, and while the first Bad Moms was a cut above the usual sort of thing on offering from that sector, I didn't love it, and A Bad Moms Christmas is little more than a seasonal themed, watered down version of the first one, complete with the half-baked version of the main characters relearning their "lessons" from the original. I've suffered far worse than A Bad Moms Christmas, to be sure, but I think it would be better if they had just left it at one movie.

Not anywhere as good as the first but still had some funny moments. We see the bad Mom's mothers in the form of Sarandon, Baranski and Hines, who all have some good moments. Kathryn Hahn is her saucy self and is the funniest in the film. A decent rental but not much else. 02-03-2018

Wasn't the best. Kristen Bell and her Mum have the funniest bits. The rest of it is pretty cringeable. In particular, wax girl. Absolutely feral, and not in a good way.
