A Bad Mum's (I refuse to call them "Mom's") Christmas is literally the same as its predecessor, but at Christmas time.
Oh yes, the old and tired comedy formula is ever so apparent here. Character introductions, drink and party, make a load of bad decisions, regret those decisions and then live happily ever after. Highly uninspired, yet somehow still watchable. In this chapter of the mothering saga, our three leading ladies are exhausted from trying to make the whole family happy at Christmas time, so they decide "to take back Christmas" and do it their own way. But wait, who's that knocking on the door? It's none other than the damn "Grandmom's" coming to wreck the holiday season even further. Enter Susan Sarandon, Cheryl Hines and the abominable Christine Baranski. These three women steal every scene and definitely inject some much needed comedy into a lacklustre story. This is the first time where I felt Mila Kunis was not the lead star, the over abundance of Kathryn Hahn made her the applicable candidate for lead star. Why? Because she's way funnier than Kunis. That's for sure. Kristen Bell...well, she's just there. Baranski's comedic timing that we all too familiar with in the likes of the never ending "The Big Bang Theory" is just gold. Just her mannerisms make me smile with glee, I mean not many people can sing "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" and make me laugh. Then we get to the jokes. Aside from a waxing scene (which was hilarious) and Baranski's character failing to remember her own daughter's boyfriend...it just fell flat. Some of the jokes were predictable (Isis being one of them) and one scene went way too far and dark (regarding Cancer). It's a case of poor writing and not enough subtle humour. It's constantly in your face and I grew tiresome rather rapidly. The third act arrives and the sentimentality is so forced that even Isaac Newton would've made a new law of motion. What even was that!? It's called "Bad Mom's" not God damn "Regretful Mom's". Suck it up and lighten up, not every comedy needs to have values for Christ's sake.
