A Bad Moms Christmas (2017)
Genre: Adventure, Comedy
I surprisingly loved the first Bad Moms (2016) movie and was looking forward to being entertained by its sequel 🙂 . However, as much as this story is okay, it disappointed me by being a typical not-as-good-as-the-original sequel. The main three actresses (Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn) are back and played their characters well 🙂 . This did make this film feel like a continuing flow from the first film which is good. The story was passable to watch but this time I lost what was great about the original. The reason the girls decided to be Bad Moms was not as strong a reason as the first, and their mothers were awful. Which is to be expected (as that is the reason for this movie 😛 ) and I did not mind them being terrible personalities. However, I did not like the preach from the councillor to Kiki (when you watch you will know 😛 ) and that the overall resolution between mother and daughter was such a easy fix for all of them. The jokes are a tad too much now, too rude that it was too awkward (for me, some seemed okay with this level of rude comedy) for me to enjoy. I did find the joke in the spa about the butt wax amusing and the dance section in credits okay (though most humour not great here) 🙂 . I am glad to have watched this film but I found it a shame its quality was not on par. I think this (since the release of the two films being just a year apart) has been rushed to try and gain popularity just because of Christmas 😛 . I hope there is another sequel with a strong story if they (directors) give it time to think up a better script. I am not sure if I would recommend this but if another film does turn up, then watching this may have to be done if you were a fan of Bad Moms 😛 . Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 2.5 Stars out of 5!
