Mila Kunis plays Amy, an overworked, overstressed, underappreciated Mother who decides to join forces with two other stressed out moms (Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn) and become a “bad mom.”
Such a title entails cracking a lot of obscene jokes, trash talking, drinking copious amounts of alcohol, and not giving a damn about what other moms think. It’s a plan that works in their favor for a short while until their actions start affecting their kids’ lives.
I gotta admit I don’t believe Mila Kunis is that great of an actress. She’s good at reacting to certain situations in a somewhat believable manner but other than that her performance usually falls flat. However, I do believe she was great as Jackie Burkehart on That 70s Show.
Kathryn Hahn is the real star of this movie. She’s the badass quickwitted one of the three. Just about everything she says is hilarious! I laughed so much that I almost choked on my popcorn a couple of times.
Ultimately, Bad Moms is not a family friendly movie but it is a slight homage to all Moms.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
