If you’ve been stressed and are looking for a chance to laugh, hysterically, then I exort you to rush out and see Writers/Directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore’s Bad Moms.
If you’re fortunate enough to attend with a large audience, you’ll, also, enjoy the cheers and clapping of other audience members for this, the funniest comedy of the year, so far.
Mila Kunis plays Amy, a mother whose life is totally absorbed by running her household, raising her children (Oona Laurence and Emjay Anthony) and holding down a job while her worthless husband (David Walton) masturbates to an online stripper.
With her children’s school under the thumb of the ultra-strict PTA president (Christina Applegate), Amy can take the pressure no more and rebels from her duties along with newfound friends played by Kathryn Hahn and Kristen Bell.
The subsequent antics of the trio are laugh-out-loud fun, though they are all superb, I have to give a special shout out to Kristen Bell for playing a wallflower, put-upon wife so magnificently.
The script is not only laugh-filled, but poignant and real, as well. This is comedy at its best.
I give Bad Moms a 4.9 out of 5.
