Watch This: Trailer(s) for Bad Moms

Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn in Bad Moms

Bad Moms stars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn as the bad moms. Other moms in the story are played by Christina Applegate and Jada Pinkett Smith. Normally a cast like this would get me very excited, but my excitement is tempered by the fact that both writers and directors are male (Jon Lucas and Scott Moore).

I can’t tell from the trailers is this is going to be a stupid, raunchy male treatment of overstressed moms, or if it is going to be great. It could be funny. The two fellows I mentioned who shared both writing and directing are responsible for The Hangover.

Here’s the film description: “When three overworked and under-appreciated moms are pushed beyond their limits, they ditch their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence.”

There are two trailers. The G rated one, followed by the red band one. The red band one contains lots of bad language. So, you’ve been informed. Choose your favorite and have a look.

The film will be in theaters July 29. What do you think? Does Bad Moms look good?

  1. Who is looking after the kids? A film has to be just a little bit believable, and I’m not sure this one will make it. Looks like something dreamed up by a couple of guys, not women, for sure.

  2. Maybe it’s cos I’m not a mom and have absolutely no desire to be, but literally nothing about this trailer looks funny or even remotely interesting to me. And you can definitely tell it was made by a dude.

    1. Yeah. I’m a mom ( and a grandma) but I don’t really get the excitement over this one. The thing that’s really depressing is that actresses like these take roles like this.
