Bad Moms

Critics Consensus

Bad Moms boasts a terrific cast and a welcome twist on domestic comedy -- and they're often enough to compensate for the movie's unfortunate inability to take full advantage of its assets.

Movie Info

In this new comedy from the grateful husbands and devoted fathers who wrote The Hangover, Amy has a seemingly perfect life--a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she's over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she's about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities--going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence--putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.

    Parts of this was cute but not enough to ever watch it again.

    Bad Moms is just another average American comedy. Just so I clear this off my mind, annoyingly the American title remains for the UK release. Honestly, "Bad Mums" would've sufficed surely? I understand why (because the mothers are American) but still! Maybe it's just my OCD playing a part. Anyway, for this comedy we follow a few "moms" who are sick and tired of doing everything...and so they choose to rebel. So now you're asking: how do "moms" rebel? Well, they go partying trying to get laid and wreak havoc in slow motion within a supermarket to the background music of pounding pop/dance songs. I could easily go down the whole "this is completely anti-male" route...but let's take this with a pinch of salt and just enjoy it. As you all know, American comedies don't stick with me. Fortunately, this is actually above average and that's majorly down to the cast. Mila Kunis was great, she had charisma and screen presence. Christina Applegate is always a delight, even if she's the antagonist but the standout is Kathryn Hahn who's vulgarity and crudeness just gets results. Hear me out...I laughed twice because of her. Me laughing twice is like Christmas coming early, it doesn't happen often. Oh, Jada Pinkett Smith should not be on the front cover, she has like 5 lines of dialogue. Underused. Some of the jokes felt fresh but the majority of them were repeated from other films. Particularly the bra scene which was copying last year's The Boss...why on earth would you want to copy that I do not know. The story was functional, the basis of it revolved around a PTA election...I enjoyed it, nothing too memorable though. I guess in the back of my mind...I find the whole concept silly. If I was under that amount of stress (God knows I have been), I would just talk to someone...I wouldn't rebel. You don't see me starring in a film called "Bad Employees". My reviews for comedies always seem harsh, but honestly I was entertained and found it to be enjoyable enough to warrant another viewing in the future.

    Ugly and vulgar, Bad Moms is a raunchy comedy about rebelling against the image of the suburban soccer mom. After being pushed too far overworked and overstressed wife and mother of two Amy Mitchell quits the PTA and takes up with a new crowd that helps free her of her inhibitions, but her children soon get caught in the crossfire between her and the PTA president. The cast isn't too bad (Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Christina Applegate), but they're all stuck playing pretty unlikable characters. And the comedy is mostly low-brow sexual humor. Yet the film tries to tie a nice bow on everything at the end with a speech about how everyone is a "bad mom" and doing your best is good enough. But this last minute turn fails to save Bad Moms from being the complete clusterf**k it is.
