The holidays just got even better for moms everywhere. That’s because our favourite, most honest portrayal of motherhood, Bad Moms, just dropped the trailer for its holiday-themed sequel, and we’ve already got goosebumps of delight.
Back for more badass mother fun are Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn as the trio of moms who are tired of conforming to the high expectations of present-day motherhood. And with the holidays quickly approaching, these ladies have had it with spreading the yuletide joy. This year, they’re all about A Bad Moms Christmas.
For us viewers, that means grabbing your fellow mums and heading out to the theatres to watch drunk debauchery go down at the mall, witness badly wrapped gifts getting tossed around, and relate to all of the stress that can come with the holidays — especially if you’re a mom.
“Do you know the secret behind what makes Christmas so special?” Amy asks in the trailer’s opening. “Moms. Moms working their asses off. Cooking, wrapping, decorating and shopping.”
Sounds about right to us. (Side note: why can’t WE get drunk at the food court while Christmas shopping?)
The best part of the trailer though? This time around, not only do we get to witness the antics of Amy, Kiki and Carla as they experience the full-blown Christmas meltdown, but we get to meet their moms too. Most notably we meet Amy’s mom, as played by Christine Baranski (The Good Wife, The Big Bang Theory) when she comes to visit.
“Amy, you are a mom,” she scolds upon learning that her daughter failed to buy a Christmas tree this year. “Moms don’t enjoy, they give joy. That’s how being a mom works.”
Looks like there are plenty of other shenanigans to look forward too — the trailer also features plenty of shots of abused Christmas trees, a random camel and awkward sex conversations with the little ones. And that’s all we need to whet our appetites for more.
It may be summer, but it sounds to us like these ladies are taking Christmas back. And we can’t wait to join them.
A Bad Moms Christmas hits theatres Nov. 3.
