Being a mum is hard, especially when you’re overworked, underpaid, your husband is useless and the other mums constantly judge you. That’s essentially the premise of Bad Moms, a comedy by The Hangover and 21 & Over duo Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.
What is Bad Moms about?
The film follows mum-of-two Amy as she juggles full-time work (that is supposed to be part-time), taking care of her children, including her husband, and being involved with their school’s sect-like PTA.
When her life crumbles, Amy decides to run against snotty PTA president Gwendolyn. In the process, she befriends Kiki, an exhausted stay-at-home mum with four children, and single mum Carla, whose laid-back parenting style verges on straight-up neglect.
The three form an unlikely bond and decide to have some fun while they take down seemingly perfect mum Gwendolyn and all the unachievable motherhood expectations she stands for.
