Coping with dating a widower
Watch Video: Justin Hartley Does Amazing Things With His Butt-Crack in New ' Bad Moms Christmas' Trailer The original’s writer-directors, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, wrote “The Hangover,” and it’s that film’s what-happened-last-night opening they crib for this movie’s setup, with newly divorced Amy Mitchell (Kunis) sitting forlorn on the stairs on Christmas Eve, her house a yuletide mess, wondering what went wrong (via narration) as a camel ambles across the frame.
(Never fear, those worried about animal cruelty in R-rated comedy: that’s the ungulate’s sole sight gag.) We then go back a week to when things were hunky-dory, if seasonally hectic, across the households of OG trio Amy — now happily dating widower dad Jesse (Jay Hernandez) — married mother-of-four Kiki (Bell), and tart-tongued single parent Carla (Hahn).

The Xmas edition of “Bad Moms” is OK if not laugh-out-loud, culminating in a grind-and-twerk foursome with a mall Santa. But then the slo-mo gets trotted out again for a dodgeball free-for-all featuring all the families at a Sky Zone trampoline center, and it sinks in just how threadbare the movie is with its mix-and-match family dysfunction comedy.

And yet there’s still a base-level joy in taking in a big Hollywood comedy starring women, even if doubling the number of central female figures — with the addition of Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon as the generation before Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn, respectively — inexplicably doesn’t bring as much funny as last year’s likably naughty original did.
Your friends and family can be powerful sources of strength and encouragement, but in the end you must be willing and determined to connect with people and move on with your life.
Though like-minded parent and child immediately share a spliff in reunited happiness, it quickly becomes clear that cash-strapped Isis’s devil-may-care lifestyle is something about which even Carla has reservations.
