Amy (Mila Kunis) 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 (Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn) 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 (Christina Applegate) and her clique of devoted perfect moms (Jada Pinkett Smith and Annie Mumolo).
Almost immediately after seeing the cast on the cover of this blu-ray you know what kind of movie you’re getting ready to experience. The talent on the cover alone is extraordinary and each have had some fantastic comedic performances. Individually they can all hold their own in this ensemble film without fading into the background and their comedic timing is absolutely perfect. The film is hilarious and has so many moments that parents in general can relate to but the film allows us to laugh and let the characters do and say things that might make actual people look like terrible Moms and Dads. There were some jokes however that didn’t hit as great and kind of slowed the film down just a tad at times. Underneath all the laughter there was a great message of a mother just trying to do all that she could to be a good parent. When things didn’t work out the way she expected then she “flipped the script” and did things her way even if it rubbed people the wrong way. To me, right there, that’s a pretty great message to have out there and it really pulled the film together nicely. I definitely suggest picking this up and just be warned that you will most likely laugh your ass off. 7/10
Gag Reel – So funny and just as hilarious as the film was.
Deleted Scenes – A few scenes here that are okay but I could totally see why they were cut.
Cast & Mom Interviews – Basically an extended feature like the one that’s at the end when the credits are rolling. It includes the cast and their mothers talking about various memories. I LOVED THIS SO MUCH! Really great feature.
