As a sequel of The Bad Moms series, ‘A Bad Mom’s Christmas’ directed by Jon Lucas, Scott Moore starring Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hanh, and Kristen Bell was released on 30th October 2017 in The U.S.A.
Produced at a budget of $28 million, this movie has been quite successful at the box-office gathering more than $72 million. Banking upon the initial success and plot of the earlier Bad Moms movie, the audience was expecting the same hilarious lines, and crazy plans in action and the movie in focus did deliver up to the mark.
The movie starts with an opening, ” I’ve always loved Christmas but as a mom it’s a lot of work, in between the wrapping, the shopping, the cooking, the decorating, there is no time actually to enjoy it and only one thing can make it even more stressful: When your mother is coming home for Christmas”
This is the story of three such moms Amy, Kiki and Carla who do everything that they can to be the perfect mom for their kids. They try to do everything within their capacity to give their respective families the best of the festive season. In between all the crazy preparations, their mums decide to drop in for Christmas and what follows then, is a roller-coaster ride of emotions and face-offs between the mother-daughter duos, as they try to deal with the tension that builds up.
All the critical comments, nagging and pestering by the senior moms really get in the way of the Christmas spirit and our three leads here decide to go all out and have the best darn Christmas without giving a second thought to what their mothers might think and hence begins their joie-de-vivre and their moment to have the time of their life minus all the stress and anxiety.
The movie flows smoothly and is full of scenes that most women would relate to. The build-up that leads to our protagonists rebelling against their moms is also quite funny along with the sharp and witty lines making us giggle and snicker through the movie and the climax with the moment of truth when the ladies say it all. The cast has done justice to their roles through the entire length of the movie.
This is a perfect one to watch with your lady squad and then come out saying, ‘I-told-you-so’ and ‘Gosh!that was so me’. Through the entire movie, you will relate to the scenes on the screen no matter how cliché they sound. Even if you’ve seen it dozens of times earlier, you will still laugh at its honest portrayal.
Produced by STX entertainment founded by Bob Simonds, Bad Moms has proven to be yet another hit for the studio. Of course, the movie could have delved in more in-depth into the characters, but for all that the movie does portray it is one refreshing watch, and also makes you feel good that someone out there knows how hard mothers work and just appreciating the efforts they take would go a long way in making them feel better.
