They really did not wait long with this sequel, A Bad Moms Christmas will be released only 15 months after the first film with almost everyone back for a holiday themed R-rated comedy.
“Amy, Carla and Kiki struggle to cope when their respective mothers visit for the holidays.”
Bad Moms was a surprise hit last summer, making $183.9 million worldwide, or about 9 times more than what the film cost. Sequels to comedies tend to be very tricky because it’s always extremely hard to recapture what made the first film a success. Mostly because sometimes not even the filmmakers really know what that was. So to fight it some of these sequels (most) end up being remakes of their predecessors with a few details changed. That’s one way to do it but it never works quite as good as they might think it will. With the whole Christmas theme I feel like Bad Moms might try that same approach. Or maybe I’m wrong and A Bad Moms Christmas can be its own thing.
The same duo behind the first film, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, wrote and directed A Bad Moms Christmas. Starring in the comedy are Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Jay Hernandez, Susan Sarandon, Peter Gallagher and more.
A Bad Moms Christmas opens in the US on November 3rd.
