Being a mom in this day and age can be pretty intense. While we all recognize that there are different moms out there with vastly different parenting styles–be it your laid back self, the women who volunteer at school five days a week, the immersion parents you see at the park speaking French to their littles or that mom who puts together the perfect Frozen themed birthday party– there is an unspoken, unhealthy competition between some women that you just can’t get away from.
Well, the women of Bad Moms are sick of it and are done. Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn star as a trio of women who have had it with the idea of being a “perfect” mother. Because is there really such a thing? Um, DUH, yes! At least, according to Christina Applegate‘s character, who is basically every parent’s worst nightmare: the overbearing, always-smiling, constantly one-upping, busy-body PTA queen bee.
Whether you’re a working, stay-at-home or work-at-work mom, we think we can all agree that a seemingly perfect life comes at a cost. You’re overtired, over-stressed, over-committed, overworked and your sex lives, once sizzling, are seemingly over (wait, mom bras aren’t hot?). So it’s totally understandable if you feel a little like the three moms of Bad Moms — and that some self-indulgence is long overdue.
Bad Moms, from the writers of The Hangover, hits theatres July 29. Carve out some time for yourselves that weekend, ladies, because you deserve it. The above link is safe for work but for a wilder ride, here’s the red band (i.e., adult) trailer that you either need to watch with headphones or at home while you’re hiding out in the bathroom from your family.
