Bad Moms – A Review

It’s been quite a weekend for me. For a change, this mum actually had a social life! Not one event, but two!

Friday night was a party to celebrate 0ur Good Ofsted report, and yesterday my good friend took me, along with two other mums, to go and see Bad Moms for my birthday treat!

Oh, what a fantastic film! It’s not often that a film resonates almost completely with me, but I spent the film either nodding in agreement, or pissing myself laughing at what was happening!

bm1

We have a working mum who is juggling a home, and family life, two children, a jerk of a husband, and a part-time job which has become very full time.

There is another mum, who has spent her mothering career as a single mum, and has embraced the ‘slutty mom’ tag she has been given.

The final mum in the main trio is a young downtrodden housewife with 4 kids under a certain age, with an overbearing husband.

Then you get the PTA mums – you know the kind, the ones that appear to be perfect at everything, the ones who influence the thinking of all the other mums. Woe betide you if you do not conform to their idea of perfect mothering!

Here you have Alpha mum, Total Suck Up mum, and Hanger On Mum.

I won’t tell you lots about the story, but suffice to say, all four of us enjoyed it immensely and came out of it feeling like great Bad Moms! It’s a total feel-good movie, but as a mum, you will relate to so much  of it! (Hubbies and dads, might be worth watching…)

All I’ll say is ‘Get your tits up!’ (You’ll understand once you watch the film!!!)

Next stop… Brigitte Jones Baby!

    I haven’t watched the movie yet! Ah, this review tempts me to watch it right away! Another reason being the presence of Lilly Singh (IISuperwomanII) in the movie, albeit for a short time. Which doesn’t really matter cos she’s my favourite YouTuber & also, your review is great! Thanks for this post! 😀

    I completely get why this is a film for mums to go and watch (or even prospective mums), but having seen the trailer, I want to watch. The only problem for me is that I usually go to the cinema on my own and I may get a few odd looks. Might be worth it, though – I have a bit of a thing for Mila Kunis

    It’s great to see there are movies coming out that are not catering to teenage male testosterone. But to other audiences.
