The Reel Review
In this sequel to 2016’s very funny and charming Bad Moms, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn decide to “take Christmas back” when THEIR moms (Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon) arrive for Christmas. What made the original “Mean Girls for Mommies” so fun was the spot on casting, realistic, heartwarming and hilariously raunchy story. This time, sadly, we have none of that. The script is exceptionally weak, the jokes painfully corny and tastelessly crude (with the exception of Hines, who slays as the clingy mom) and, until the finale, completely lacking heart. This pitiful sequel is as bad as the original was good. Bah humbug.
