Last Year when Bad Moms was released, I stated that the film felt like an R-rated version of Modern Family, sitcom-level writing, trying it’s hardest to be edgy. Lo and behold the story hasn’t changed much with A Bad Moms Christmas as you have much of the same except it is exponentially worse. Riding on the notion once again that the most difficult job on the planet is being a mother, the two horrible mothers along with their semi-competent friend are back, this time dealing with the pains of their own horrible mothers, it’s like a pattern.
There isn’t much of a plot here, it is the same crude humor and f-bomb dropping every third line that makes this feels like a 90-minute sketch some Viner on YouTube would put together (and those videos are the worst) and not an actual movie. Amy (Mila Kunis), Kiki (Kristen Bell) and Carla (Kathryn Hahn) are the centers of this film once again and each one is insufferable in their own way. Amy is an unlikable lead whose only contribution to the movie is saying “What The Fuck?” about eleven times minimum. Kiki is not interesting enough of a character to even waste time on, and Carla’s crudeness overstays it’s welcome like an uncle who drinks whiskey and wants to fight everyone in the room, children included.
The best thing I can say about this film is it’s not as bad as Daddy’s Home 2 it’s just not good. Again I find myself thinking the film probably would have been better making the center focus Kathryn Hahn & Susan Sarandon and literally not everyone else but for the love of God, this franchise needs to die and Thank God they won’t make enough money to do another one. A Bad Moms Christmas is one of the reasons why people are saving so much money this holiday season, to avoid movies like this.
