        Now that Halloween is over, it seems that a lot of people are already in the Christmas spirit and ready for the holiday season. The first new Christmas movie is right there with you because A Bad Moms Christmas came out this past weekend, ready to spread the holiday cheer and get people laughing as the holiday approaches.

       Be advised: Minor spoilers are ahead, so if you don’t want any of the movie ruined, look away now.

      If you haven’t seen the first movie, Bad Moms, I strongly suggest you watch that first before seeing this holiday sequel. Get to know Amy, Kiki and Carla (played by Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn respectively) as they become close friends through sharing their parental and basic life struggles with each other.

        After falling in love with these three characters in the first movie, you’ll only grow to love them more in the second. The sequel also brings in these bad mom’s mothers, played by Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon. Having these amazing actresses join the other three in an epic holiday celebration movie is exactly what we need to start off this Christmas right.

      As the original moms are already under a lot of stress for trying to create a perfect holiday for their families, now they have to deal with their mothers coming over for the holiday as well. The new moms range from a bamboozler, a clinger and a perfectionist, which make their daughters rebel against them in their efforts to “take back Christmas”.

     Throughout the movie and as we get to know the mothers of the main characters more, we notice elements of their moms in all three women. Giving us more of a background on the younger mom’s lives, we watch them as they overcome their mother’s influences over them.

      Another addition in this sequel is the sexy appearance of Justin Hartley, best known for his role as Kevin in the series, This is Us. His appearance in the movie is as a sexy dancer who strikes up a romance with Kathryn Hahn’s character, Carla. In one hilarious and slightly awkward scene, they first meet while Carla waxes his private area. Definitely one of the funnier scenes in the movie.

       Overall, I don’t want to give too much away, but A Bad Moms Christmas is definitely a funny, heart-felt holiday film. It is a family and friendship bonding movie that will have you walking out of  the theater in the holiday spirit. So, grab your loved ones and head to the theater for a good time. Trust me, once it’s over you’re going to want to watch it again already!
