Bad Moms was probably one of the biggest surprises of my movie watching career. From what looked like a low-budget cash in on raunchy, female-led comedies came a smart, and funny story that played with movie gender tropes in clever ways. Now we’ve got the first trailer for the sequel… because of course there has to be a sequel.
This is where I’d usually bemoan this fact, but I think this could work. The Christmas angle gives the movie another chance to poke fun at gender norms the same way the original did, and as long as the screenplay still hits its humor it could be a worthwhile return. So, I’m actually excited here for a comedy sequel.
Christmas miracles do happen.
