​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS (2017)


What happens when a movie unexpectedly breaks through out of nowhere, surprising critics and audiences alike with an amusing, raunchy take on being a single mom that hits on some universal truths? Yep, you guessed it - we get an uncalled-for sequel that tries to capture the lightning in a bottle the first film did. A Bad Moms Christmas sees our three bad moms (Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn) dealing with a couple of challenges - first, dealing with the Christmas season and second, dealing with their own crappy mommies (Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon) when they come to visit for the holidays! Baranski can play this part in her sleep, as she dominates and criticizes poor Mila and everything she does and throws her extreme wealth at every holiday tradition. Hines wants to be her daughter's best buddy and Sarandon is really just stopping by to borrow money - again. There are moments - Hahn just keeps stealing scenes, like she did in the first flick - but it's a simple story with a highly predictable ending. What will the next sequel be? A Bad Moms Vacation, where they all take a road trip? Hey, that's not bad - someone write this down! I got go - a story treatment awaits!

Should TLA see this? Well she already saw the first one...
