QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: Three moms vow to take back Christmas and make it a low-key and stress-free holiday, but must contend with the arrival of their respective mothers and all of the related mother-daughter baggage that brings along for the holiday.
PLOT:
Having commiserated and bonded over the daily stresses of being moms, Amy (MILA KUNIS), Kiki (KRISTEN BELL) and Carla (KATHRYN HAHN) are now fast friends. But with Christmas quickly approaching, Amy hates the thought of all of the related stress of making things perfect and decides she, her kids Dylan (EMJAY ANTHONY) and Jane (OONA LAURENCE), boyfriend Jessie (JAY HERNANDEZ) and his daughter, Lori (ARIANA GREENBLATT), are going to have a low-key, stress free holiday.

Kiki and Carla agree to this "take back Christmas" strategy, but before any of them can commit to pulling that off, all of their mothers show up. For Amy, that also means getting to see her dad, Hank (PETER GALLAGHER), but she dreads having to contend with her highly critical, perfectionist mother, Ruth (CHRISTINE BARANSKI), who's already decided to force her view of what a Christmas get-together with the family should be like, regardless of that being against Amy's direct wishes.

For Kiki, she must deal with her uber-clingy mom, Sandy (CHERYL HINES), who wants nothing more than to be with her daughter at all moments, including secretly being in the bedroom during her daughter's love-making and buying the house next door. And for Carla who works at a salon and has just fallen for fireman Ty (JUSTIN HARTLEY) who moonlights as a male stripper, she must contend with her inattentive, long-absent mom, Isis (SUSAN SARANDON), who usually only shows up when she needs money to pay off her gambling debts.

With Christmas fast approaching, the three women must contend with their mothers thwarting their laid-back Christmas plan, all while dealing with their various mother-daughter issues.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they enjoyed the original "Bad Moms" movie they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For crude sexual content and language throughout, and some drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
