Well, I seem to be forming a pattern here… movies about mothers both yesterday and today. Very different type movies though, for sure. I really enjoyed seeing Bad Moms at the movies today, I was laughing pretty much through the entire thing. Mila Kunis is most definitely one of my favorite actors… That 70′s Show, Friends with Benefits, Oz The Great and Powerful… she’s quite the chameleon! There’s something very cool about being able to see an actress all grown up, after seeing them acting as a teenager for so long. Jackie Burkhart is all grown up, and has a very busy life with two kids, a dog, and a hectic job (apologies to those who haven’t watched That 70′s Show for the references).
Kunis plays a very overworked, way too stressed out and busy mother of two. To add to the craziness, she also has a deadbeat husband she also has to deal with on a regular basis. Oh, and a dog with health issues. After a near-meltdown, she joins forces with two other exhausted mothers and they all decide to be ‘Bad Moms’ together, no more mom-ing for them. Kathryn Hahn and Kristen Bell are the perfect people to be her co-conspirators, all three actors together are so hilarious! Can’t forget to mention the ‘mean girls’ of the movie… these so-called ‘bad guys’ are super well portrayed by the talented Christina Applegate, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Annie Mumolo.
It’s the perfect way to leave an impact on the audience… a funny comedy, but with an important message… it’s okay to screw up! A surprise appearance made by Wanda Sykes was so awesome! Also, I gotta say… I highly recommend staying past the credits, huge surprise for the audience at the end 🙂
