'Bad Moms' trailer is for every mother who ever wanted to say, 'You know what? Screw it.'
If you didn’t know, I’m a mom. I’m living a weird geek-mom-meets-yoga-pants version of Leave It To Beaver with my husband, our two kids, our suburban house, and our gaggle of pets. There are days I pick a kid up from practice before Table Top game night. But not fitting into any of the pre-assigned “Mommy” boxes can make everything from playdates to PTO an awkward experience. Too commercial to be a Crunchy Mom. Too career-oriented to be a Mom-bie (Zombie Mom). Too busy to be a Soccer Mom. Too worried to be a Free-Range Mom, but too lackadaisical to be a Helicopter Mom. The list goes on and on of what a mom is SUPPOSED to be. Then the trailer for Bad Moms dropped, and I actually saw a reflection of myself.
Is…is this what men feel like when they watch trailers for every other broad comedy? It feels…amazing!
The official description:
In this new comedy from the writers of The Hangover, Amy has a seemingly perfect life - a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she's over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she's about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities – going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence – putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.
I watched this trailer THREE times because it is speaking to my soul. YES. Let’s bring store-bought desserts to the fundraiser. Let’s have an alcoholic ladies-only house party for the PTA with no kids. Let’s throw the rules out the window and have less structure, less pressure, less f—ks to give.
Let’s be bad moms.
Bad Moms arrives in theaters on July 29, 2016.
