Mila Kunis stars in the hilarious and relatable must-see summer comedy Bad Moms.
Joining her on the star-studded cast are actresses Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, and Christina Applegate. These funny ladies and the rest of the “Bad Moms Co.” are hilariously rowdy in the hit summer flick.
A comical and relatable film for women everywhere, parent or not. Everyone can relate to the feeling of not being able to live up to expectations, especially when it comes to being “the perfect mother.” Being a mother is the toughest job in the world!
Bad Moms is a riotous representation of what could happen when a group of moms are overworked, under-appreciated, and pushed beyond their limits. The story centers in on three young mothers who ditch their maternal responsibilities for a long overdue adventure filled with freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence.
With some of the funniest women in the industry a part of Bad Moms, it’s practically impossible for this film to not be hysterical. Other well-known co-stars in the film include Gotham‘s Jada Pinkett Smith, co-star of the newly released Netflix Original film The Fundamentals of Caring Megan Ferguson, and pop vocalist Ke$ha even makes an appearance.
“Bad moms” Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn play the role of women that are fed up with the PTA domination of the so-called “supermoms,” played by Christina Applegate, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Annie Mumolo.
Co-star Kristen Bell commented during an interview that this movie addresses the truth — that there is no such thing as a perfect mother!
“This movie blankets the whole topic of motherhood in a way that the message is there are endless ways to do it, and whatever way your gut is telling you to do it is what’s right.
“It’s a unifying message that we all feel less than, frazzled and overworked. We’re terrified we’re messing up our humans, but that’s the beauty of this entire movie, it’s moms in solidarity.”
Co-director Jon Lucas stated that the inspiration for the film came naturally out of his [and co-director Scott Moore] experiences watch his wife mother their children. The audience will resonate with the familiarity of the pressures that face mothers every day. Bad Moms puts a hilarious spin on the crazy happenings of everyday life as a mother.
“We’re both married, we both have kids, so we spend a lot of time home writing, watching how hard it is for our wives to be moms and everything they put up with.
“Making sure the lunches are made, taking them to soccer practice, treats for the bake sale, everything. Wouldn’t that be a great movie to explore what it would be like to take a break from that?”
The actresses in the movie can relate to the hectic mom-life as well! All of the women starring in the film are mothers themselves and the directors chose them for specific reasons. They felt that the main characters had to be mothers in real life in order to portray the characters that they envisioned.
“I think women who aren’t moms often play moms really sweet, and I think people who actually are moms play moms way more bada**.
“You pitch them a joke and they’re like, ‘oh, I want to take that further,’ rather than ‘oh, would I really say that to a child?’”
We can count on funny woman Mila Kunis to make some hilariously inappropriate jokes about being a mother. It was just a few months ago in June that Mila Kunis announced she was pregnant with her second child with husband Ashton Kutcher. They welcomed their first child, Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, in 2014. Mila and Ashton first met on the set of the hit series That 70’s Show when Mila was just a teenager.
Frozen star Kristen Bell and husband Jax Shepard have two daughters: Lincoln Bell Shepard and Delta Bell Shepard. The couple vowed to hold off their marriage until same-sex marriage was made legal in America. The couple wed in 2013 after section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act fell on June 26, 2013. Their daughters were born shortly after in the spring of 2013 and winter of 2014.
Actress Christina Applegate gave birth to her daughter, Sadie Grace LeNoble, in January of 2011 with husband Martyn LeNoble.
Even the “baddest” mom of them all in the film played by Kathryn Hahn, knows first-hand what it is like to deal with the craziness of having a child. Hahn has been married to actor Ethan Sandler since 2002. The couple has two children together: a son, Leonard, who was born in 2006 and a daughter, Mae, born in 2009.
Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell made an appearance on “Ellen” around Mother’s Day to talk about Bad Moms and their lives being new moms themselves. Their husband’s Ashton Kutcher and Jax Shepard surprised them on the set.
The foursome went on to play a humorous game of “Never Have We Ever” with host Ellen Degeneres.
The movie hit close to home for all of the actors and they were able to depict their individual characters perfectly based on real life experiences. All of the actresses had a great time on set of Bad Moms filming.
“This has been the fastest shoot I have ever been on in my life, it really is. At one point I was like, ‘We only have five days left?’ Like, I’m actually sad about it. I very rarely get sad when ending a movie. The crew is lovely, the cast.”
“I don’t think I’ve had one talking scene with a male actor.”
– Kathryn Hahn
“It’s been a clam jam.”
For all of the moms out there who has ever dreamed of putting their foot down to the endless pressures put on them by other mothers, the PTA, media, and society to be the “perfect mother”–this film is for you.
A fun-filled flick that covers everything from bringing store-bought baked goods to a PTA event, getting mommy drunk, sex life as a parent, and ugly “mom bras” –Bad Moms has got it all.
