Obviously a wallow of some kind, but I have to admit that the dialogue doesn’t sound half-bad here — it has a sharp, well-sculpted rimshot quality. And you can sense a certain confidence from costars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn. But none of this matters because you can’t trust a trailer. Directed and written by Hangover screenwriters Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, who co-directed 21 and Over.
Noteworthy: Bad Moms only began shooting on January 11th, or a little less than four months ago. The STX release opens on 7.29. Six months between the start of production and opening day is definitely unusual. What other super-quickies have happened this century? As far as I know no mainstream film was ever slapped together faster than Otto Preminger‘s Anatomy of a Murder — began shooting on 3.23.59, wrapped on 5.15.59 and opened on 7.2.59.
