A Bad Moms Christmas movie review - Aussieboyreviews


This Christmas-themed Bad Moms instalment is raunchy, crude and is best for teen audiences. It’s not as charming as the first film, but creates a fun story.


The three under-appreciated moms rebel against the huge expectations and pressure of arranging Christmas for their families. However, things get trickier when their own moms pay them each a visit.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Despite the refreshment of our naughty moms getting drunk and being savage, this Christmas-themed sequel introduces a childish pace. Of course, there’s still the strong crude sexualised humour, but it’s placed within the kind of story with a momentum that children will appreciate more than adults. With that, who’s supposed to actually truly enjoy A Bad Moms Christmas?

The three main stars are obviously the best components of this film, and it’s also quite diverting to bring the Daddy’s Home 2 idea of the previous generation of parents entering the story. Christine Baranski, Susan Sarandon and Cheryl Hines aren’t as brilliant as the main mothers, but still execute their characters each with very dissimilar quirks.

Unfortunately, the child-like speed of A Bad Moms Christmas really weakens the overall movie. It might sound tiny, but it’s kind of hard to completely enjoy something you’ve been so used to seeing previously. There’s the fun savage-montages with the Christmas spirit, but it’s definitely no where near as witty as its 2016 predecessor.
