Bad Moms Review: A Enjoyable Movie With A Terrific Cast

The Film 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 Sumary:

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.

What are the Critics saying about Bad Moms?

Julia Cooper (Globe and Mail)

Although all these actors prove the shrewd casting choices of Bad Moms. It is Hahn who makes this unassuming summer blockbuster something close to stellar.

J. R. Jones (Chicago Reader)

So the movie plays like Mean Girls with a big dollop of middle-aged wish fulfillment.

Adam Graham (Detroit News)

Hahn hijacks the film and makes it her showcase. She’s rude and crude in a physical, full-body performance, and half her lines seem improvised, because she spits them out like a spray of machine gun bullets.

Kate Erbland (indieWire)

A female-driven story that doesn’t shy away from bad behavior while also touting the importance of familial bonds and solid parenting choices.
