Since Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend, there’s no better time to unleash the Bad Moms trailer. Mila Kunis is sick of trying to be the perfect mother, so she decides to just take a break from trying to please everyone all the time and just live it up. Joining her for the carefree lifestyle change are Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn while Christina Applegate plays the uppity, high-strung PTA mother who is not about to let them get away with their reckless behavior.
Watch the Bad Moms trailer after the jump.
Here’s the Bad Moms red band trailer straight from STX Entertainment:
And here’s the more tame green band trailer for Bad Moms as well:
Even though this doesn’t quite pack as strong a comedic punch as most movies that go straight for the raunchy comedy, there’s something refreshing about the women being crazy and irresponsible parents this time. The cast is certainly enough to turn some heads, and it’ll be nice seeing Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn really cut loose since it’s been awhile since any of them have gotten this raunchy on the big screen. Though I’m not sure why throwing cereal around in the grocery store is one of the wild things they’re doing, but whatever.
The rest of the cast includes Bridesmaids co-writer and The Boss co-star Annie Mumolo as well as Jada Pinkett Smith making a rare comedy appearance. Plus, Jay Hernandez and Clark Duke will be popping up somewhere in the movie, even though we don’t catch a glimpse of them in this first trailer.
Bad Moms has a script that comes from Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the writers of The Hangover, who are also directing the comedy as their sophomore effort behind the camera after 21 & Over in 2013. There’s nothing that’s really quite as funny as anything from The Hangover just yet, though I will say that last conversation in front of the bathroom mirror made me laugh pretty hard. I just hope this isn’t one of those comedies that’s trying too hard to be vulgar just for shock value.
Amy has a seemingly perfect life – a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she’s over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she’s about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities – going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence – putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.
Bad Moms hits theaters this summer on July 29.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
