(2017) (Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell) (R)
- 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.
- 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.
