bAD MOMS movie review - Aussieboyreviews


These savage mothers are crude, frequently drunk, have potty mouths, and aren’t kid-friendly. This comedy is humorous and fun, but can get mildly flat at times. Teens will enjoy it.


When three overworked mothers, Amy, Kiki and Carla, are pushed beyond their limits, they decide to ditch their responsibilities and lead a life of drunk freedom.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Kunis, Hahn and Bell are definitely the perfect fit for these drunkly savage mothers who’re loads of fun to witness, but there’s just not enough of the specific wittiness they deliver at first. Bad Moms is a comedy that forms these incredibly amusing montages of naughty behaviour, but yes, it all flattens slowly as the film digs deeper into what’s supposed to be their more extreme levels of vulgarity.

The humour provided by Amy, Carla and Kiki kicks off with ideas that feel really fresh, but not entirely original. They’re very funny and amusing to begin with, but they’re not as witty when the laughs become clichéd and recycled throughout the entire film. Despite how overused the jokes may be or even how bland some moments may get, the bright tone and the attitude will definitely leave you feeling pleased. It’s worth giving a watch by teens and adults, but remember, the crudity is not kid-friendly.

The execution of the naughty-moms idea probably could’ve been a little better. The moments in which the raunchy or occasionally cringey humour is produced are usually fun. However, even just the simple 100 minutes can grow overlong.
