Bad Moms

Comedy


 

Three overworked mothers decide to liberate themselves from their household and social responsibilities and go wild.

The surprisingly adequate "Bad Moms" has just enough things working in its favour to stop it from being a complete train wreck. This comedy is best described as a stereotypical high-school comedy in disguise, complete with the mean girls (PTA board), cliques (black lesbian mothers), makeovers (mono-bras) and jocks (single widowers). Their spin provides enough of a change to keep things entertaining and slightly enlightening. It's by no means a side-splitter, and there are a few casting and scripting misfires, but in the end it's kind of fun to see moms behaving badly.
