This movie was hilarious! If you are looking for a good laugh and a movie to put a smile on your face, check this film out. The storyline is silly but it reinforces the idea that no one is perfect, not even moms, and sometimes we need an outlet just to forget about hardship and challenges we face... Read More »

This movie is actually more funny than people give it credit for, starring big names such as Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, and Christina Applegate. Three of these loving and overworked mothers team up to defeat the character played by Christina while on the PTA committee. This movie shows the funny sides of parenting and how it is easy for parents to feel overworked and as a result put strange pressures on themselves and their children. Yes, there were definitely a few ridiculous scenes, and yes, it won’t be winning any awards, however, it is still a very entertaining movie that I would rate 3.5/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Basically a wish-fulfillment fantasy for overworked mothers everywhere but it hit all the right comedy notes for this (sometimes) bad mum. Probably best enjoyed with a group of mum friends.

one commenter doesn't appreciate that movie written by males. but if it had been written by females, albeit it's ' demeaning to women,' then it is ok?

Bad Moms is a funny and entertaining movie. Great casting for different type of moms. The concept was probably borrowed from the Bad Teacher with Cameron Diaz in 2011. Both movies are funny. I can't wait for the next movie called Bad President.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie, boy was I wrong! This movie is hilarious! Definitely watch with your favorite group of bad moms.

This movie is hilarious! But it is not just entertaining. It reminds us to watch for the balance we need to keep in our lives as parents. Each character will have a resemblance in your own life making the film all the more funny.

The female, and tamer, version of Old School written by the creators of The Hangover. This is montage-heavy, causing a less than 5-star rating. I am watching the Christmas version after seeing this. Hilarity!

My wife and I laughed so hard at the theater we were literally crying. So were others in the audience--mostly but not totally women. Bought the DVD and we still laugh throughout every time we watch.
By the way, the box office alone returned nearly ten times the budget.

I watched half of it and then returned it. Frankly I thought the humour was condescending to women. Not funny at all. Sad that the movie was written by men.

I just didn't find it funny. I've laughed at raunchy films before, but this just wasnt funny.

Amy Mitchell part 1 of 2:

I'm Amy Mitchell, and I'm a mom. I had my first kid when I was 20 years old, and I've been running late ever since.
My days are filled with dropping the kids at school...then racing to work where I have meeting, after meeting, after meeting. I usually end up eating a shitty lunch at my desk, and I try to work out once a week. Why do I suck at Zumba? Most days, I race back to school for the kids' plays, and poetry readings and class projects... Which I'm always late for. And then there's PTA meetings, and volunteering and parent-teacher conferences. …

Amy Mitchell part 2 of 2:

At least once a day, I feel like the worst mom in the world, and I cry in my car. … Then I shuttle the kids to piano lessons and soccer games and dance classes and doctors' appointments, before my daily trip to the grocery store. Ugh. This chick seems like she's got it all figured out. But I feel like I'm screwing up all the time. Still, I love being a mom. … I live just outside of Chicago with my two kids, my dog and my husband, Mike. He's a successful mortgage broker, but sometimes he feels like my third child.

Many quotes in imdb but may not include below:

Do you know the best thing about mom parties? They end at exactly 11:00.
===
I mean, I sat here and watched you wait until your kid fell asleep before you got high.
===
You see, what works for my daughter almost never works for my son. And whenever I think I'm actually starting to figure my kids out, they grow up and I'm back to square one. So, the truth is, when it comes to being a mom, I have no fxcking clue what I'm doing. And you know what? I don't think anyone does. I think we're all bad moms, and you know why? Because being a mom today is impossible!

Interviews with cast & mother:

My role as a mother was so hit-and-miss. I was a little looser, but too loose in many ways.
===
Yeah, of course you lie to your kids, of course you do, and you go through their things.
===
Raising kids is an amazing experience. I did some mistakes, but the end, I can see it's not as bad. They survived.
In spite of us.
===
When I went into labor and stuff, I didn't even ask if it was a boy or a girl. I just asked for Demerol.
