I’m gonna make a few assumptions here. You’ve seen the Bad Moms trailer. You thought it looked like it might be funny. You’re thinking about going to see it.
How did I do? Did I get that right? If so, here’s what you need to know about Bad Moms before you head to the theater.
Yes, it really is that funny.
I’m critical of comedy movie trailers. Specifically, I’m critical of the fact that they tend to be loaded with all of the movie’s best jokes, leaving the actual film a bit flat if you’ve seen the trailer. Don’t worry. Bad Moms is pretty darn full of jokes from start to finish. Jokes you didn’t see in the trailer. You’ll get your laugh on.
Yes, you should bring your friends.
This is definitely one of those movies that will benefit from seeing it with your besties. Especially if your besties are moms who need to get out. Plan a girls’ night for your squad and hit the theater together. Probably with plans for wine. Before or after. Either works.
No, you shouldn’t bring your kids.
Dude, the movie is rated R. It earned that R. Unless you want to have a few really uncomfortable moments with your little people, they should probably stay at home with their dad or a sitter.
Yes, you should watch the credits.
There’s some seriously good stuff happening in there. You might need tissues. Especially if you opted for the wine before the movie.
No, you don’t have to be a mom to enjoy it.
Just because it says Moms in the title, it doesn’t mean non-moms can’t enjoy this movie. Chances are you know enough moms that even if their story isn’t your story, you’re still going to see the humor and heart in Bad Moms.
STX Entertainment invited me to a special Bad Moms press event in LA earlier this month. You can get the full scoop in my interviews with Jon Lucas, Suzanne Todd and Scott Moore, Christina Applegate and Annie Mumolo and Mila Kunis and Kathryn Hahn.
