A new red band trailer for riotous comedy Bad Moms has been released. Released last night, the trailer shows stars Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn and Kristen Bell holding nothing back as a trio of mothers who’ve had-it-up-to-here with trying fruitlessly to reach the impossible standards of the ideal mother (via. Screenrant).
The trailer overlooks Kunis’ character as an overworked suburban mother whose demanding job and pushy children have stretched her patience thin and far. Tired of trying to conform to the spotless standards of the ‘perfect mothers’ she sees at her kids’ school, she finds decided to rally against the unreasonable demands made of her with two similarly sick-n-tired mothers (Kathryn Hahn and Kristen Bell). United against the so-called ‘perfect mom’, the three quickly develop a friendship, and endeavour to make the life of self-professed ideal mother, Christina Applegate, as uncomfortable as possible.
What follows appears to be rowdy parties, children behaving badly, adults behaving despicably, and a whole lot of sex, drugs and alcohol. There’s some slapstick distinctively stirred-in for good measure, with memorable snippets capturing Kunis in a selection of road accidents after fruitless attempts to multitask whilst driving, offering unashamed observations on the unrealistic demands society often places on the modern mother amidst the rebellious hilarity – something that looks to draw on the actors’ own parental experiences, as many of the women in the film’s cast are mothers in real life.
The film was originally intended to be directed by Judd Apatow and star Leslie Mann, but scheduling issues since caused the duo to drop their names from the project. Hangover directors Scott Moore and Jon Lucas directed and co-wrote its screenplay, with the film to be distributed by Paramount and STX Entertainment.
Bad Moms releases in cinemas on July 29 2016.
