Bluray Review: Bad Moms


Bad Moms loses the funny if you're not a mum between 20-40.

Bad Moms discusses the pressure parents, mainly mothers, put on themselves to be a perfect parent; to run a life consisting of a high-powered job, taking care of the family home, looking after the kids (doing their homework, taking them to all their after-school clubs, providing them with balanced meals) and also looking after their husband. During the film three mothers, all having their own separate and very different issues join up to get away from daily life and conventional responsibilities to let them think about what really is important to them, and think about how they want their family life to be. On paper it sounds like something you would want to watch, you can imagine the comedy that could happen, and how it would be really cool to see all these woman (great cast) let loose. Unfortunately, this film is so targeted to 20-40-year-old mums, I don’t think anyone else could really enjoy it.

I mean don’t get me wrong there are some laugh out loud moments, but they are far and few between. Unlike the amount of times pop songs bust out and they give us some slow-motion action shots, that just get more tedious the more the film continues. It felt like the film was planned around these moments.

I think marketing this film as ‘from the writers of Hangover’ is very misleading, although true. If this film was anything like Hangover it would have been much more popular, but the cheesy safeness of this film is not something I would recommend.

Bad Moms is the great-aunt of Mean Girls, she’s trying too hard, name dropping to get people talking to her and bringing up popular culture to make herself seem younger.

0.5/5

  2. I think this movie is one any working person responsible for this never shares in their life can relate to. I viewed it more of a mom temporarily getting vets up, but then finds a better way for everyone. I would love to own this.

  4. I liked the movie, but i thought the ending was just too easy, the lead got exactly what she wanted in the end and that just seemed like a throw away type ending.

  5. I actually thought the movie was kind of funny as well. The ending was definitely bad and there were some parts that I thought were horrible but it had me laughing. It helped that I didn't have high expectations to begin with.

  6. I absolutely loved Bad Moms! I have no human children myself but still could relate and understand the power struggles in society to be a "good" mom. A good mom to me isn't the elite High class status who does the most in the neighborhood, it's that mom that loves their kids with all their heart and supports their kids no matter what!

  9. I totally disagree with this review. We watched it with moms ranging from 30's-60's, as well as dads and even single guys in their 20's and all thought it was hilarious. Sure a bunch of the funny requires a level of relatability, but in this day and age of information overload, it's hard-pressed not to know someone who has experienced a lot of the situations these moms faced.

  10. I thought it was funny and entertaining. Much better than a blood & gore or a slasher movie!

  16. I'm in that age range but I'm not a mom and I really liked this one. Different strokes.

  17. As a single guy with no children in my 30s I really enjoyed it. I watched with a few friends which were a mix of singles and parents and all of us thought it was really funny, save one who typically doesn't like this type of comedy, but she is a mom of 3.

  18. This movie was funny and fairly true, that is if you were or are a working parent. The interview that Hannah posted only sums up the fact that those people who have never been parents have no idea what it is like, what is funny and humorous about it and have no business writing a negative review. They have no experience on parenting and the stress that goes with it. I didn't expect this movie to be similar in bad taste to the Hanover movie, which are a total bad fantasy. Maybe that is why the sequel to Hanover #2 did so badly at the box-office. It was just trash, and in poor taste. I think the public had enough of Hanover and were hoping for something new.
    , which they got with Bad Moms. Hannah's review only show that she has limited experiences in life and prefers those films that have shock value instead of those that have humorous statements about reality and life.

  19. I have 2 son's and have not had a min between work and my family to watch this movie yet but the trailer looks funny but it would be hard to tell if I agree with the review or without seeing but thanks for your thoughts.

  20. Hannah seems to be very lame with real life experiences

  21. I haven't seen this yet but it's on my list. I don't fit the age range you refer to, but it looks pretty funny to me. I see other comments are mostly positive. I'm still going to see it. I like the cast.

  22. I enjoyed the comedy in this film. It's a "bit" on the extreme side, but it was funny.

  23. I have not seen it yet. I could see the problem with targeting a specific group of women. But I still would like to see, since I am in that age demographic.

  24. I am not a mom and I have no idea how difficult it is to be a mom but I can imagine how difficult it was for my own mom to raise 3 children. I can understand that every once and a while, moms need to let loose and have some for themselves. Moms deserve it!

  25. Haven't seen it yet but I now own it on Digital HD and on Blu-ray, so I'll be watching it sometime soon. I've mostly heard good things about it, though.
