Bad moms (2016)

A laughaton packed into a deep message for moms, this film took me by surprise. I was expecting the usual tension/resolution, but thankfully directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore stayed away from the cliche.

Mila Kunis, Kirsten Bell, Kathyrn Hahn, Christina Applegate and Jada Pinkett Smith show us different faces of moms, essentially ordinary women trying to make the best of their trying and sometimes impossible circumstances. The comic quotient is high, with lots of surprise jokes and in-your-face reality checks which are much needed by struggling mothers.

A must watch for all moms, young and old, for dads to see how manic the world for many moms can be. For kids, to appreciate what their parents do for them while balancing a lot, all this in a non-preachy manner! Fun!
