Who said that only men were allowed to star in raunchy comedies that hit big at the box office and receive sequels faster than you can blink? A Bad Moms Christmas, the follow-up to the 2016 hit Bad Moms, arrives later this year and as the title implies, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn are back and are prepared to behave badly during the most wonderful time of the year.
You can watch the first A Bad Moms Christmas trailer below, but be forewarned: this is the red band trailer and foul language, shouted by both adults and children, is on full display. If you’re at work, plug in some headphones.

A dead stripper, a couple of swingers, and a Human Centipede joke. Sounds like the ingredients for a new Hangover movie, right? But it’s actually the plot of Rough Night, the new bachelorette party gone bad comedy opening this weekend.
A female-fronted film with raunch and revelry shouldn’t feel like an anomaly in 2017, yet somehow, it still does. Despite the box office success of Bad Moms, Trainwreck, and almost every comedy Melissa McCarthy has made, each movie of this kind tends to arrive with an odd sense of novelty. Or, at the very least, skepticism.
So why is it that movies like Rough Night – and Girls Trip, which opens just a month later – are still met with curiosity? The reaction is rooted in history.

Bad Moms is a very fun and very funny movie that was also a big box office success. It’s a studio comedy with a good heart, a charismatic cast, and, sure, an overwhelming soundtrack and an unnecessary ending in which the characters board a private jet. It’s not exactly the film’s most relatable moment, or a happier ending than the scene with Amy (Mila Kunis) in the car with her kids, but it detracts little from Jon Lucas and Scott Moore‘s highly enjoyable movie.
The good times will continue with A Bad Moms Christmas, which has secured a 2017 release date and will co-star Susan Sarandon. Below, learn more about the Bad Moms sequel.

After Bad Moms took ins over $180 worldwide earlier this year at the box office, on a budget of just $20 million, STX Entertainment made the decision to quickly keep the franchise alive with a spin-off focusing on the other parents. Bad Dads was set for release on July 14, 2017, and it felt like an odd way to capitalize on the success of the film, especially without any of the original cast or writers/directors Jon Lucas & Scott Moore involved. But now Bad Moms is getting a sequel of its own too.

Bad Moms was a breath of fresh air this past summer. Co-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore made an original comedy which, instead of following around a bunch of normal man-children, starred women having fun and getting up to a little debauchery. But part of what was appealing about Bad Moms may not apply to the hit film’s spin-off, Bad Dads, which STX Entertainment has scheduled to open in theaters next summer.
Below, learn more about the Bad Moms spinoff.

Imagine if Mean Girls‘ Regina George never got hit by that bus, and instead continued along the path she’d been on before she met Cady Heron. Imagine the smug, gossipy, mean mom she’d grow up to be. That’s more or less the character Christina Applegate plays in Bad Moms, the new comedy from 21 & Over writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. Together with her two besties (Jada Pinkett-Smith and Annie Mumolo), Gwendolyn rules the PTA with an iron fist.
But they aren’t the “bad moms” of the title. That’d be Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn, three stressed-out suburban moms. Fed up with the pressure to be perfect parents, they decide to indulge themselves for a change. When Gwendolyn stands in their way, they realize they’ve got to take her down. Watch the Bad Moms trailer after the jump.
