Bad Moms stars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn as the three titular bad mothers, all overworked and under-appreciated, who are pushed beyond their limits, leading them to ditch their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence.
Written and directed by both Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, a film with two directors rarely works but this looks from the trailer to have some promise. They’re previously responsible for writing/directing 21 & Over, and writing the three the three Hangover films – none of which I’ve seen but I hear they started off well and then went downhill along the way.
The cast includes Christina Applegate, Jada Pinkett Smith, Emjay Anthony and, for some reason, Kesha (or is it Ke$ha? …who cares) and Bad Moms is released in the UK on August 19th.
