Bad Moms

It's not just a titleā€”it's a demographic! Mila Kunis stars as a frazzled working mother who snaps under the pressure and decides that, instead of working full-time at a part-time job and catering to every whim of her two crabby children, she'd rather whoop it up 24/7 with fellow disaffected moms Kristen Bell (the virginal one) and Kathryn Hahn (the slutty one). Most of the action revolves around their children's school, which is ruled with an iron fist by alpha PTA mom Christina Applegate and her two prim little lieutenants Annie Mumola and Jada Pinkett Smith; in fact the movie plays like Mean Girls with a big dollop of middle-aged wish fulfillment. John Lucas and Scott Moore, who wrote The Hangover, directed their own screenplay; with Wanda Sykes and Wendell Pierce.
