A Bad Moms Christmas Movie Review
Check your calendars – it’s barely the second seven day stretch of November and the primary X’mas film of the year is already here. Granted, the happy season is ideal for some cheerful, feel-great stories that make you laugh and warm your heart in equal measure. Yet, what is it about Christmas that propels Hollywood to produce lazy comedies? It requires some amount of absurd reasoning, or in this case – unfamiliar financing, to take an average film – 2016’s ‘Bad Moms’, and give it a spin-off with a holiday topic, no less.
Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn are back to showcase their best bad behavior. This time they’re joined by their moms played by Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski and Cheryl Hines. While one is incredibly carefree, another is over-possessive and there’s a fussbudget tossed in for good measure. All to guarantee that the jackpot of stereotypical, dysfunctional maternal figures can be dug for a laugh. Naturally, this allows for a wide range of jokes to their detriment, yet when the scholars decided to inject all other sentences with a swearword, you realize they’re aiming for easy pickins. While the film is by all accounts aimed at the female demographic, it’s composed by the two men who wrote ‘The Hangover’. That isn’t essentially an issue in itself, although it’s another matter when you hear a young lady dropping F-bombs. It’s perhaps the rarest case where you may very well be thankful for our conservative edit board! The film feels like it’s grabbing each chance to legitimize the ‘bad’ in the title, with ample genital anatomy gags and unrefined sexual allusion.
The less said about the performances, the better. The three main leads appear to be making a halfhearted effort with barely any interest into their characters. The actresses playing their moms, in any case, display somewhat more experience. Susan Sarandon appears to have pursued this film just to allow her hair to free and have some fun with a tense character inclined to debauchery. However even the Academy Award champ doesn’t do a lot to legitimize her essence. This is indicative of the film all in all – sure there are a couple of occasional laughs, regardless of whether they’re unfathomably senseless. Sadly, the movie keeps away from totally focusing on that course and winds up being one more conventional Christmas flick. Watch this just in the event that you’ve exhausted all different options out there.
A Bad Moms Christmas Movie Rating – 5,5/10
