Bad Moms (2016)



Critic Consensus: Bad Moms boasts a terrific cast and a welcome twist on domestic comedy -- and they're often enough to compensate for the movie's unfortunate inability to take full advantage of its assets.

Movie Info

In this new comedy from the grateful husbands and devoted fathers who wrote The Hangover, Amy has a seemingly perfect life--a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she's over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she's about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities--going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence--putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.

Critic Reviews for Bad Moms

All Critics (172) | Top Critics (52)

I wasn't expecting some sort of deep, philosophical dive into motherhood from this film. I was simply expecting to laugh maybe once.

It has no substance; it doesn't say anything.

March 21, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

A little more vinegar... and Bad Moms could have been a genuinely subversive comedy, rather than just a sweetly funny one.

August 29, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Mostly, Bad Moms is remarkably astute about the pressures and neuroses of modern parenting.

August 29, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

With its bland blasts of chart pop, it's less riot-grrrl provocation than sporadically rowdy coffee morning.

August 25, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Bad Moms is an entertaining, girls-mainly comedy about the problems of parenting.

Audience Reviews for Bad Moms

Cute, funny, clichà (C) mom movie

Better than expected. I really thought it would be another crap fest like Sisters, but actually, despite not being a mom, I found plenty to laugh at here. Shame about the usual boozy party scene (so sick of those in a movie), but otherwise amusing and nice to see Christina Applegate in something.

Externally gaudy with crude gags and humor, internally heartfelt and utterly charming; Bad Moms is a surprisingly enjoyable film. The film's strong female cast, preposterous comedy and loveable tone makes for almost a 'guilty pleasure' that moms and audiences can happily watch countlessly. 4/5
