The trailers for this film were really funny, so I knew that I would be going to see this movie. While it wasn't the most original, "Bad Moms" ended up being a really funny raunchy comedy, and the packed audience seemed to think the same thing.
The film was quite funny. Instead of going for recycled jokes, a lot of the film had more original humor. The party scene in the film was one of the funniest parts. There are some shock value moments, however, those are less frequent. The chemistry between the actresses also does a lot to advance the humor.
The writing of the film, while formulaic, is actually quite likable. Each of the characters fit a clear archetype, however, none of them feel forced, not even the antagonist. Each character has a combination of characteristics that allows them to be relatable to the target audience. The ending is rather clichéd, but it is a crowd-pleasing ending, so you can't really blame the writers for that. The film also has a balanced amount of emotionally-driven moments, which flow naturally into the film. The acting of the film is also really great. All of the main actresses play their characters very well, showing the right emotions at the right times.
So overall, I really enjoyed "Bad Moms". It wasn't the most original film, but the well-written characters and the great humor make up for it. If you like raunchy films like this, you should check it out.
