A Bad Moms Christmas (2017)



Critic Consensus: Featuring twice the moms but roughly half the laughs, A Bad Moms Christmas is a slapdash holiday sequel that falls short of the original with a disappointing dearth of good cheer.

... a stale old chestnut.

November 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Bad Moms 2, in that it could have been so much worse, winds up not being bad at all.

November 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's very silly and more than a little sentimental, but often really funny.

November 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There's sometimes a perverse pleasure to be had in seeing fine actors slumming it in crass movies. Not here.

For festive fun, A Bad Moms Christmas is right up there with coal in your stocking.

November 2, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

"I have heart cancer," Ms. Hines's character says at one point in a vain attempt to halt her daughter's complaints. I think I know exactly what she meant.

Audience Reviews for A Bad Moms Christmas

Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn wreck shop in the raunchy holiday comedy A Bad Moms Christmas. When Amy's mother comes to visit, her plans for a small intimate family Christmas are upended; meanwhile Amy's two best friends are having mom problems of their own. Kunis and Bell are comedy gold, but Hahn's bawdy shtick doesn't work. The tone is all over the place, literally changing from scene to scene. And the holiday problems that the moms face are over exaggerated and aren't as relatable as the one's in the first film. A Bad Moms Christmas has its moments, but overall it's a slapdash sequel that doesn't quite come together.

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.

Wasn't the best. Kristen Bell and her Mum have the funniest bits. The rest of it is pretty cringeable. In particular, wax girl. Absolutely feral, and not in a good way.
