Movie Review – Bad Moms (2016)

24 August 2016 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bad Moms, 2016.

Written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.

Starring Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Christina Applegate, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jay Hernandez.

Synopsis:

When three overworked and under-appreciated moms are pushed beyond their limits, they ditch their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence.

The fact that writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore make a conscious effort to state their film’s title in excess of ten times throughout is a key indicator of just how remarkably false it is: an awkward and vapid droid carved from the entrails of the equally dour The Hangover franchise, Bad Moms is so disastrously unfunny and tonally misjudged that every time the leading ladies bellow out their newly-adopted branding, you can’t help but grimace.

Like so many modern comedies, little attention is paid to story and character because we simply don’t »

18 August 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Bad Moms is a raunchy comedy about grown-ups behaving badly - and it's hilariously good. The film, starring Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn, is proving to be a sleeper summer hit.

11 August 2016 3:24 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Hello there, and what a week we're having. First, there's the news that Ghostbusters has probably been busted due to being a loss. Then, Ocean's 8 gets it's star-studded cast announced. While it's totally fine for a movie to be remade with a female cast, the cast for Ocean's 8 sounds like six degrees of Kevin Bacon. Since Hollywood doesn't seem to have new movie ideas for a female led movie, I've come up with a list of movies due for a remake.

‘Bad Moms’ Producer Suzanne Todd: Why the Veteran Producer Likes Staying Outside the Box

2 August 2016 6:38 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Many in Hollywood pair Suzanne Todd with her younger sister and producing partner Jennifer, long known as Team Todd. They produced a raft of movies together, many at freewheeling New Line Cinema, including teen coming-of-age classic “Now and Then” and Mike Meyers’ Austin Powers franchise. They also put on the map Christopher Nolan (“Memento”) and Ben Younger (“Boiler Room”). And while they both produced Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” with Joe Roth at Disney, for its sequel “Through the Looking Glass,” Jennifer was busy running Pearl Street Films, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s production company, while Suzanne carried on with the “Alice” sequel. And so she went solo on “Bad Moms,” which Stx opened well this weekend.

Jason Bourne Wins Big at the Box Office with $60M

1 August 2016 8:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Star Trek franchise proved it still has some box office firepower last weekend by winning with $59.2 million. While, admittedly, it was the lowest debut since filmmaker J.J. Abrams rebooted the franchise in 2009, it received glowing reviews and it may have more longevity in theaters than its predecessors. This weekend, it went up against Universal's Jason Bourne, Stx Entertainment's comedy Bad Moms and Lionsgate's Nerve. As predicted, Jason Bourne easily came out on top with an estimated $60 million.

The original Bourne movie trilogy is one of the few to have a bigger box office performance each time out, with many franchises increasing with the second movie and dropping with the third. 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum earned $69.2 million in its opening weekend, en route to a franchise best $227.4 million domestic and $442.8 million worldwide, from a $110 million budget. While Universal tried to keep the franchise alive by going in a somewhat different »

Bad Moms earns $23 million – and it only cost $20 million to make

1 August 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Star Trek Beyond and Ghostbusters continue to fight to recoup their budgets, comedy movie Bad Moms has already done so.

With a rumoured budget of $20 million, comedy ensemble Bad Moms has already made $23.4 million domestically and $24.8 million worldwide. If Bad Moms can capture the Bridesmaids audience retention, it could earn around $60-$80 million domestically.

What could be a blow however was that Bad Moms was actually tracking around $30 million leading into the weekend.

[Review] Bad Moms

29 July 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Subversive in passages, Bad Moms is a fairly paint-by-numbers affair with all the beats that years of test audiences have told Hollywood they need to include, from the protagonist trading up to the baddest of the bad moms growing to learn how to balance being both bad and good. It’s the kind of screenplay careful observers of the genre could write even before walking in the door of your local multiplex, based on recycled parts of other films. A gag involving a “mom” bra, for instance, was done just as effectively in The Boss, an earlier Kristen Bell outing from April; this time Bell watches as Kathryn Hahn critiques Mila Kunis’ “mom” bra. Both male-directed directed pictures are cynically crafted for a suburban gals night out at the local cinemas, as focus grouped and market researched as the T.G.I. Friday’s margarita I imagine this picture’s »

Movie Review – Bad Moms (2016)

29 July 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bad Moms, 2016.

Written and Directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.

Starring Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Jay Hernández, Clark Duke, Emjay Anthony, Oona Laurence, Jada Pinkett Smith, Annie Mumolu, David Walton, Leah McKendrick, Megan Ferguson, and Christina Applegate.

Synopsis: 

When three overworked and under-appreciated moms are pushed beyond their limits, they ditch their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence.

Of all the different types of people in the world, quite easily one of the most annoying is a parental figure with a superiority complex that their method of teaching children right and wrong is right, (along with how to behave and mingle in society) preaching to everyone else that they are doing everything wrong and that they are the devil incarnate for doing so. Bad Moms is sort of a love letter to the stressed-out parents, specifically moms, that are more »

'Bad Moms' Review: A 'Hangover' for Stressed Mothers

29 July 2016 8:29 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

You're not looking at the funniest comedy ever made, or even the freshest. But Bad Moms knows its way around a laugh and the women who so need to get their party on. Mila Kunis, always a wonderfully frisky screen presence, tones down her inherent hotness to play Amy, the 32-year-old mother of two kids she burdens with too high expectations, even more than those she sets for herself.
