Celebrate the holidays like a mother.

Amy, Kiki and Carla – three under-appreciated and over-burdened women – rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for mothers: Christmas. And if creating a more perfect holiday for their families wasn’t hard enough, they have to do all of that while hosting and entertaining their own mothers.

I might be a man but let me tell you this was one of the funniest movies I have seen this year I laughed out loud more than once and got the Christmas spirit the rest of the time the 3 beautiful women were just a joy to watch and the whole celebration of family and hilarious comedy mixed is such a Christmas treat if your looking for some Christmas fun and full of lol moments I totally can recommend this one

I'm not much for American comedies, and while the first _Bad Moms_ was a cut above the usual sort of thing on offering from that sector, I didn't love it, and _A Bad Moms Christmas_ is little more than a seasonal themed, watered down version of the first one, complete with the half-baked version of the main characters relearning their "lessons" from the original. I've suffered far worse than _A Bad Moms Christmas_, to be sure, but I think it would be better if they had just left it at one movie. _Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._

I haven’t seen the original bad moms movie. Oddly enough, I decided to watch this one because Christine Baranski is in it. I like her in The Good Fight and always look forward to when her character laughs. There are a lot of funny moments here, and also some cringeworthy ones, such as one mother having absolutely no boundaries in shoehorning herself into her daughter’s life, or ribald scenes like the dreaded ball-waxing sequence. But if you have maxed out temporarily on the sappy feel-good, miracle ending Christmas movies, this might make for an antidote, as long as any kids are off in bed.

Not as funny and so overly sentimental. A limp sequel. 'A Bad Moms Christmas' is basically 'Daddy's Home 2' - which, interestingly, was released less than a week after this. Mila Kunis (Amy) in the lead role isn't as strong, nor are Kristen Bell (Kiki) and Kathryn Hahn (Carla) unfortunately. They have a few bits, but not enough. Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon are meh newcomers. The ending particularly dragged, with it going full on preach mode and is far too cutesy. It'd be fine if it also wasn't so predictable. I noted the music in 'Bad Moms' as being good, but even that drops a level in this follow-up film. It could've been worse, I guess, but I just didn't find entertainment with this.
