... a stale old chestnut.

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

"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.

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.

I found myself fixated on the lack of apostrophe in the title A Bad Moms Christmas. This isn't for moms-it's merely about them.

Female audiences deserve better movies than this.

Fans can best enjoy the movie the way the bad moms make the best of the holiday: lots of alcohol, lots of forgiveness.

What does it say about "A Bad Moms Christmas" that the funniest line in it is uttered by Kenny G?

IIt's kind of funny the first time a cute kid drops an F-bomb out of the blue; the fourth time, less so.

Has the shoddy look and frantic feel of a slapped-together, cash-grab sequel, because that's exactly what it is.

"A Bad Moms Christmas" is predictable and ridiculous and lame, but here we are, cracking up at the moms twerking with a department store Santa Claus again.

November 1, 2017
"Bad Moms" may have leaned pretty hard on its R-rated material, but "A Bad Moms Christmas" uses it as a crutch, piling on expletives and out-there situations without considering the toll they take on the film's emotion.

The holiday season has barely started and already we have our first lump of coal.

November 1, 2017
The success last year of Bad Moms made a sequel as inevitable as Christmas overindulgence. The combination of the two may lead to indigestion.

November 1, 2017
There's a regrettable lack of comic ingenuity in how this installment mines the well-worn trope of coping adult daughters and set-in-their-ways matriarchs not getting along.
November 1, 2017
You know a comedy is in trouble when it resorts to the Funny Montage multiple times.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
November 1, 2017
Another slapstick dose of hard-R ridiculosity with a soft-nougat center, but it also passes the Bechdel test maybe better than any other film this year, and its older generation of stars are too smart not to go to town on their stock roles.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

Adds star power but unfortunately downshifts the craziness to dive into full Hallmark Channel schmaltz.

November 1, 2017
"A Bad Moms Christmas" is pretty typical of Hollywood seasonal fare: a fine cast and a few passable moments, but the material is more miss than hit.
November 1, 2017
A movie can be unreasonably formulaic and still be reasonably diverting, and "A Bad Moms Christmas" is the proof.

Female audiences deserve better movies than this.
November 1, 2017
A Bad Moms Christmas is louder, busier and more pandering than the original - an exhausting spectacle of skilled performers gamely mugging their way through a cash grab.
November 1, 2017
The new film, while just okay enough to get by, takes a step back from the audacity of "Bad Moms" to something more cautiously conventional.

It's painful to watch a talented cast grimace their way through this stuff.
