A Bad Moms Christmas

Rated 1.0

Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn, having soiled themselves with last year’s loathsome Bad Moms, wade into more of the same, this time dragging Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon (as their respective mothers) down into the muck with them. Written and directed by the team of Jon Lucas and Scott Moore (raising the question of how someone can be so untalented that it takes two of them to come up with a pile of camera-vomit like this), the movie is an example of the I-Hate-Christmas-Movie, the most despicable genre this side of snuff films and Nazi propaganda. Not content with that, Lucas and Moore add more generous dashes of the I-Hate-Mom-Movie and the I-Resent-My-Kids movie. Peter Gallagher, Wanda Sykes, Christina Applegate and Kenny G show up for pointless (and thankless) bits. J.L.
