Film Press Review | Bad Moms

08.02.2016 – “Bad Moms” in the on set can be relatable to most mothers in real life. Some of them are single parents who have overly committed themselves that they put family first before their personal life.

But this domestic life had its own twist and turns that you might not find some of its humor entertaining. There are no contradictions just fact how this was underrated in the first place as one of those non-epic films.

For a movie that has to do with a mother that tries to be perfect and realized there’s more than anything else than just committing one self. “Bad Moms” aren’t literally what the title meant it’s just there’s no perfect parent.

Everyone screws up in the case of Amy Mitchell (Mila Kunis) she’s actually screwed over until she realized being a parent doesn’t mean its her job, but a team effort surrounded by her would-be friends and her kids.

Scene Stealing Carla

Amy Mitchell is not the original ‘Bad Mom’, but this personality that literally defined the title is owned by Carla (Kathryn Hahn) who is really off the rails that had a dirty mouth that influenced Amy and Kiki (Kristen Bell) to not give any crap what’s really happening. She mostly the one who really trolled almost all the main characters out there and its hilarious how it went on throughout the second act.

She basically slowly went back from literal ‘Bad Mom’ to an annoying secondary character for Amy Mitchell, while Kiki is just someone who got easily compromised not to fight for her rights until everyone had found their voice in the third act.

Not you’re Average Mama

In the out of character role to be the antagonists Christina Applegate and Jada Pinkett Smith doesn’t appear like high society mothers. They look like nasty ‘Titas’ (a Filipino term for elder women) who weren’t look like can lead a PTA board, but in need to slow down and smell the petunia in the garden.

But Applegate didn’t much capitalized on the villain role that much and Jada was way better baddie in Gotham as Fish Mooney than one of those mothers who just didn’t look annoying. There was so much more this movie could have taken advantage for a cast having also Jay Hernandez who happens to be more than eye candy for the ladies.

Final Verdict in Class

This was an R-16 film with children involved but not as gross than everyone thinks. This comes from the same writers of ‘The Hangover’ who dialled down all the nastiest that merely focused on the narrative. Given all that you have a good cast didn’t pushed the envelope for something in that level and played it safe. ‘Bad Moms’ is great but not that too great to be a memorable film.

It the end they just let it wrap the story and while the credits played scenes with the female actors and their mothers talk about being parent that would have appeared more or less not an R-16 to be still Kathryn Hahn still ruled the rest of them as supposed ‘real’ bad mom.
