Top Critics’ Reviews
Fresh: What makes “Bad Moms” funny (aside from its lineup of gifted performers) isn’t that Amy and her friends go wild; they don’t, not even close. It’s the women’s shared, near-orgiastic pleasure in their freedom and friendship.
Fresh: 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.
Rotten: Bad Moms had so many opportunities to be great, edgy and insightful, but instead settles for the most milquetoast commentary possible on modern motherhood.
Rotten: With its bland blasts of chart pop, it’s less riot-grrrl provocation than sporadically rowdy coffee morning.
