Are you ready to party like a mother? Join the Bad Moms – we have shitty wine and pizza!
This week I got to attend a (FREE) advanced screening of Bad Moms (in theatres 7/29/16) starring Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hall and since I have been counting down for a while I danced my way to the theatre. After checking out the vendors sponsoring the event and putting on my best smile in the photo booth, I grabbed my swag bag (complete with Bad Moms wine glass!) and hopped in line to enter the theatre.
After finding a seat with my friend Kalynne we dug through our goodies. In addition to our Bad Moms glass we had a rum ball, pink glitter popcorn, and wine. It’s like they knew me personally! We got a quick speech about turning our phones off (or face HUGE financial penalties) and we were off!
Who Are You?
I don’t think that I have laughed out loud so hard in a while and I cannot tell you how good it felt. When you see a funny trailer there is a risk that you have seen all of the funny parts of the movie, but that is NOT the case with Bad Moms! From overly produced powerpoints to a child made “mom” necklace to Martha freaking Stewart making jello shots (yes, you read that right) there are so many moments that you can’t help but guffaw.
One of the funnest things about this movie is they do an excellent job covering the “mom types” to the point that you can see exactly who you are and who your friends are. I like to think of myself as a combo of Amy and Kiki (Kunis and Bell), but we all know who the Gwendolyn and Carla’s (Christina Applegate and Hall) are in our circles. My friend and I kept picturing which friends would be each character…watching this movie with a friend is a must!
The Hand Amy’s Dealt
I promise the movie isn’t all drinking, dancing, and dick jokes (and there are good dick jokes). Amy is handed situation after situation that would make me grab a pint of Ben and Jerry’s and curl into the fetal position to watch bad reality tv.
Instead, she picks her tits up and takes control of her life. She conquers each of her barriers like all bad moms would, by wanting to do less but having to do more. She makes everyone realize that we aren’t bad moms, we are just moms that society has made think that they need to be perfect. Impossibly perfect. I’ll drink to that!
The Unoffical Bad Moms Drinking Game
This is a movie that you are going to want to watch more than once. You are going to want to throw a party and watch it with your girlfriends. You are going to want to watch it with your husband after the kids have gone to bed. You are going to want to watch this when you just want (or need) to laugh. With movies that you know you are going to watch a lot I find drinking games are the way to go. Might I suggest this mojito as your drink of the night?
The Only Question Is…
When are you grabbing your friends for a Bad Moms night out?
