Late for a marketing meeting and/or the kid’s first soccer practice. Covered in coffee and/or spaghetti. “I’m sorry, OK? I’m trying.” The mantra of the working mom — or pretty much every mom.
Welcome to the red band trailer for Bad Moms, starring Mila Kunis as the would-be supermom trying to keep it together. She’s doing remarkably well — until confronted with the dozen-plus things that can’t be included in bake sale items. No butter, eggs, sugar or wheat? No dice. Before you can say “helicopter parent,” our heroine has linked up with a couple of other like-minded-but-closed-mouthed mothers (Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn) to fight the power. Namely the alpha-female PTA chieftain (Christina Applegate) and her perfect-mom minions. Much self-indulgent bonding, partying and she-nanigans ensue.
Annie Mumolo and Jada Pinkett Smith co-star in the pic from The Hangover franchise writers Jon Lucas & Scott Moore, who also direct. Bad Moms is part of STX Entertainment‘s year-old deal with China’s Huayi Brothers, and STX will open it July 29. Check out the trailer, and tell us what you think. Fair warning: Don’t be too thrown by the stars working it out to Nicki Minaj’s vocal on David Guetta’s “Hey Mama” at the beginning. Maybe activate mute mode if you’re working.
