This film is really not that funny as it wants to be. A small group of absolutely over-the-top-perfect mothers, namely Gwendolyn (perfectly bitchy played by Christina Applegate), Stacy (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Vicky (Annie Mumolo) are basically screwing every inch of proper selfesteem that any mother who is really trying, could have.
So step aside ladies, you just hit the wrong nerve with Amy (Mila Kunis, I KNOW you can do better than this?!), Kiki (Kristen Bell, same goes for you: ffs why THIS film??) and Carla (Kathryn Hahn…haven’t seen you yet, not sure if I’m willing to either).
Aside the incredibly lovely bitchy Christina Applegate (she really knows how to do that, lovely) I didn’t see all that much proper acting. You sort of want Amy to hit Gwendolyn in the face a couple of times, but Amy is really the anti-hero here and she just doesn’t.
Sure, there’s a few funny-ish moments, but it’s not wowing me that much to be fair. It’s not that much over the top acting, it’s basically girls that are hanging out.
If you really have nothing to do you coudl have a go at it, otherwise: go for something that’s actually funny and has a bit more of a storyline. Even the moment where they split up, it’s….well…emotionless and such. It’s no big deal.
And neither is the film.
