Bad Moms (2016) : Movie Review

3.5 stars
Directors: Jon Lucas,Scott Moore. 
Starring: Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn, Kristen Bell, Christina Applegate and more.
Time: 100 mins.

Bad Santa. Bad teachers. Now bad moms. The title is little unexpected, for the moms are the really good ones overwhelmed into thinking that they are letting others down. This is a story about juvenile men and bitchy ladies and their bullying and bad behavior, and how our three musketeer moms turn outrageously immature to spell justice for these people.
The story begins withAmy Mitchell (Mila Kunis), trying to be a perfect mom who packs breakfast for her kids every morning and is late at their PTA while trying to settle with her overworked self into the sheer monotone. And then crash! She gets to know that her husband has been e-cheating on her, and she kicks him to the curb. He is a whiny baby, mind you.
Now tired of being perfect, Amy chucks the idea out the window and becomes a "bad mom". And appalled by her behavior is the catty ice princess Gwendolyn (Christina Applegate) who is the president of the PTA.
She finds the other musketeers in two rattled mothers Kiki (Kristen Bell) and Carla (Kathryn Hahn) and they bond over booze.
Kiki is an overworked housewife with a tyrant for a husband who dictates her around while Carla is a single mother with promiscuous ways which led her baseball player kid to remain friendless.
The story is raunchy fun, with the storyline a little too predictable.
Some scenes do feel forced but others can only be described as ROFL scenes. Mila Kunis is amazing and smoothly shows what the moms actually do feel like.

Comedy layered with asincere message, it breaks all the conventional rules but shines out like the must watch it is, especially for moms.
