Whether you’ve seen Bad Moms or not, A Bad Moms Christmas will have you laughing out of  your chair.

Amy (Mila Kunis), Kiki (Kristen Bell) and Carla (Kathryn Hahn) are having their hands full as mothers preparing for the holidays. What could make it even more stressful? Having their moms,  who are all screwed up in their own way, show up to the festivities.

Susan Sarandon plays Isis—Carla’s roadie mother who doesn’t mind smoking pot in a Sky Zone. Christine Baranski plays Ruth, Amy’s mom, who’s so perfect, not even her hair moves when she does, and Cheryl Hines plays Sandy, Kiki’s mom, who is more than clingy— she wears pajamas with photos of her daughter’s face on them.

The three main characters have had enough of the overdone holidays, so they want to take Christmas down a notch. This includes getting drunk at the mall, stealing a tree at a Footlocker, dodgeball at Sky Zone and other shenanigans.

Naturally, things go bad really quick; at one point, there’s a real camel in a living room.

But of course, there’s a happy ending which includes Chinese food and a stripper dancing to a Christmas song.  

This movie has a 28 per cent rating on rotten tomatoes. If this matters to you, you might not like this movie. Also, the language in this movie might not appeal to everyone. If you don’t care about profanity, you’ll be okay with the movie.

I enjoyed A Bad Moms Christmas, because it was a great movie to watch and laugh with friends. Before finals, the last thing I want to concentrate on is a sophisticated movie. Also, I understand not wanting to do the big holiday parties; even just attending the events is exhausting for me. I really like the cast of the movie; Susan Sarandon as a grandma might have become my idol after watching this.
