Bad Moms

Mila Kunis (Ted), Kristen Bell (The Boss) and Kathryn Hahn (Tomorrowland) lead this comedy as overworked mums attempting a new approach to parenting - irresponsible partying and self-indulgence. Co-stars Christina Applegate (Vacation) as a life coach who trains mothers to 'play by the rules' (i.e. be dull and no fun). From the writers of The Hangover.

The writers behind The Hangover wrote and directed this comedy about a trio of women who - wait for it - go off the rails and do outrageous, hilarious things. As opposed to their other films in which men do the same thing, or college students do, or Jason Bateman outrageously body swaps with Ryan Reynolds. Thankfully, Bad Moms is a more enjoyable watch than its pedigree or predictable subject matter would suggest, generally successful at earning audience laughs as it negotiates the terrain of being an averagely ok comedy you’re likely to have forgotten before leaving the carpark.

A slapstick comedy about society's shaming of stressed-out moms

Filmmakers, media and marketing industries prey on women's anxieties about their bodies, and motherhood is another favourite target. While the documentary Embrace (2016) calls out body shaming, the comedy Bad Moms (2016) calls out the impossible standards to which...

A Light Hearted Good Time

Probably one of the funniest film of this year. The jokes were well executed and the story was well paced.

The laughter this movie offers could provide cathartic medicine for the middle-class mom blues.

What makes "Bad Moms" funny (aside from its lineup of gifted performers) isn't that Amy and her friends go wild; they don't, not even close. It's the women's shared, near-orgiastic pleasure in their freedom and friendship.

Rarely does a minute pass without another quality zinger and rich laugh.

Does a couple of things pretty well and most things pretty poorly. It's not really much of a film.

The movie cops out by going soft in the end, but it's still hardcore hilarity for stressed mums looking for a girls' night out.

A good-natured girl-power comedy that balances a bland sitcom structure with some weird and hilarious moments.

Lucas and Moore have their hearts in the right place, but their efforts have little real insight or impact.

Hahn ... injects what could have been another insipid studio hack job with a bracing shot of personality.

There are no wheels being reinvented by Bad Moms, which gradually loses the courage of its convictions... Nevertheless, it is twice the movie that lamentable AbFab thing out now turned out to be, and far more funny.

Bad Moms isn't great - but it isn't bad either.
