Bad Moms are:
Under-appreciated and overburdened moms Amy, Kiki and Carla rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas. As if creating the perfect holiday for their families isn’t hard enough, they’ll have to do it while hosting and entertaining their own respective mothers when they come to visit.
Kristen Bell on Bad Moms difference in their characters and her infamous argyle sweater:
I think that what made our characters so special is how different they were. And one thing I think that everyone wanted to keep was our–I don’t even want to say the word diversity because don’t print the word our diversity. But, was the difference that the differences in our characters. And so, yes. Kiki still loves a Goodwill sweater.
Mila Kunis: A little Argyle goes a long way.
Kristen Bell: A little Argyle goes a long way. Yes. But, I am wearing a little bit more eye makeup in this movie thanks to Carla.
What Bad Moms thought about female-led comedy with “Bad” in the title
I would love to know if you guys could speak to the importance of this being a female led comedy with the word
bad in it where I think you see men very often being described as, like–oh, they’re bad, they’re kind of crazy. And you don’t
see that a lot of with female-led films. I’d love to hear you guys talk about the importance of that and where that kind of
moves us forward in hopefully the entertainment industry.
Kathryn Hahn: We’re all going to be bad.
Kristen Bell: Mila. Mila.
Kathryn Hahn: Yes, Mila. You speak to it better.
Mila Kunis: I really don’t. I think a title is just a title, not to be completely–but I don’t think one has anything to do with the other, honestly. I think that really embracing the fact that characters are flawed. And so, allowing the woman not to be the perfect, you know, 1950’s stay at home mom character is always nice. And so, I think this movie represents the idea of bad being the imperfection of a human being. But yes, I think it’s important to show real life and I think this is–you know, as comical as it is, it’s very much the real life of any parent, you know, mother or father.
Kristen Bell: And not just to show women being stressed out and have that be their art–.
Kristen Bell: But to show women who might want something a little bit different than what they have and show them trying to.
Mila Kunis: Pursue it and struggle with it.
Kristen Bell: Yes.
Mila Kunis: And find ways to either get it or fail.
Like, I–just be a little more realistic with the outcome of
choices people make in life.
Kristen Bell: There’s nothing funny about perfection.
Kathryn Hahn: That’s true. Yes.
