Bad Moms

While Bad Moms may lack an original plot, it has plenty of unique and memorable laughs thanks to co-writers/co-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, who also penned The Hangover. But most importantly, the film has a positive message for all parents. Amy Mitchell (Mila Kunis) is struggling to juggle her career with motherhood and the task seems all the more daunting when she is constantly being judged by several stuck-up mums, led by PTA president Gwendolyn (Christina Applegate), until Amy decides to ditch her responsibilities and have some fun. Kunis is sweet and surely relatable to so many mothers, while Kathryn Hahn and Kristen Bell are hilarious as Amy's only friends at the school. There are only a few men in the film but Jay Hernandez definitely fulfils the all-important eye candy quota for this chick flick, playing a widower raising a child alone. Bad Moms is hardly an exceptional piece of filmmaking, especially with an ending that is all far too convenient, but it is an entertaining way to spend 100 minutes with fellow mums, grandmothers and aunties when you need a break from your own children.
