"Bad Moms" began life as a film with Leslie Mann set to star and Judd Apatow producing, but that's changed now. Instead, writer/directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore of "The Hangover" have managed to move the film from Paramount to STX Entertainment, and they've got Christina Applegate, Kristen Bell, and Mila Kunis all set to star.
That's as strong a trio of comic performers as any male-driven movie you can point at in development right now. One of the best set visits I've ever been on was for "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." Yes, part of that is because the film was shooting in Hawaii at the Turtle Bay Resort, and we stayed at the resort for the week I was there watching them work. That helped. But part of it was also because it was a group of people who all seemed determined to prove just how smart and funny they were while telling a story they genuinely cared about, which is an energy that is positively electric when you're around it.
