A woman with a seemingly perfect life - a great marriage, overachieving kids, beautiful home, stunning looks and still holding down 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 and all go on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities.
Comedy - While a film primarily targeted at women and, indeed, mothers, this
comedy is as crude and raunchy as many aimed toward young men.
Constant language, graphic sex talk, and constant alcohol make the film
absolutely not for kids, but the attitude also gives it broader
appeal beyond the female demographic. Fans of Mila Kunis, Kristen
Bell, Kathryn Hahn, and Christina Applegate will have plenty to enjoy
though Jada Pinkett Smith's role is rather small.

Roger EbertFull Review Good ...it balances its nuggets of truth with hilariously raunchy humor. Even when things soften and turn sweet toward the end..."Bad Moms” retains an appealing wrongness. Maybe moms can indeed have everything after all.
NY PostFull Review Above Average ...a good-natured girl-power comedy that balances a bland sitcom structure with some weird and hilarious moments. Male comedy writers who even attempt a female viewpoint are rare, but these guys don't just try, they bring it off.
Rolling StoneFull Review Above Average The movie cops out by going soft in the end, but it's still hardcore hilarity for stressed moms looking for a girls night out. Guys should also check out Bad Moms — you just might learn something.
Slant MagazineFull Review Average Occasionally, the film hits on something that feels true to universal human experience. The end-credits sequence shows up the rest of the film as the broad and incoherent live-action cartoon that it is.
