A Bad Moms Christmas is a sequel of the film Bad Moms (2016). What Bad Moms leading ladies Amy, Kiki and Carla represented was freedom. Freedom to fuck up. Freedom to do the best you can and still fuck up. Now A Bad Moms Christmas is here to bring that same real mom spirit to the holidays.
A Bad Moms Christmas follows our three underappreciated and overburdened moms as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas. As if creating a more perfect holiday for their families wasn’t hard enough, the moms have to juggle creating Christmas cheer while simultaneously hosting and entertaining their own mothers. By the end of the journey, Amy, Carla & Kiki will redefine how to make the holidays special for all and discover a closer relationship with their mothers.
Mila Kunis (“Ted”, TV-series “That 70’s Show”) once again plays the lovable and vivacious Amy, doing her best to keep it together at the holidays with the normal chaos of decorating, baking, tree trimming, buying and wrapping presents. Further complicating things, this Christmas she and her new(ish) boyfriend Jessie (Jay Hernandez “Suicide Squad”) are blending their families, and Amy is determined to make the holidays a hit at any cost.
Kathryn Hahn (“We are the Millers”, “Captain Fantastic”) returns as Carla, a single working mom whose nail art matches her mood. She is ready for a good time at a moment’s notice…just make her a proposition. You never know what is going to come out of her mouth.
Kristen Bell (“CHIPS”, “Veronica Mars”) returns as Kiki. Four small children are enough to drive any mom crazy, and Kiki is no exception. Kiki is doing her best to find a balance between her child-rearing and spending “special” time with her husband.
Christine Baranski (“Mamma Mia!”, Tv Series “The Good Wife”) plays Amy’s mom, Ruth, a stickler and perfectionist who loves Christmastime and considers the holidays a competitive sport. Like everything else she does, she tackles the yuletide spirit with 100% enthusiasm, conviction, and intensity. Ruth and her husband Hank, played by Peter Gallagher, have come from Palm Beach to be in Chicago with their daughter and grandkids for Christmas.
Cheryl Hines ( “The Ugly Truth”, TV Series “Curb your Enthusiasm”) plays Sandy, Kiki’s mom. Kiki’s mom has lost her husband and since she became widowed has not really found her way. Sandy focuses all her love and adoration on Kiki, but hasn’t been able to maintain healthy boundaries in doing that.
Susan Sarandon (“Cloud Atlas”, “Thelma and Louise”) plays Isis, Carla’s mom. Isis is a carefree stoner spirit like her daughter…and then some. Passing a joint or sharing high heeled boots, whatever the circumstance... the apple bong doesn’t fall far from the tree with this mother-daughter pair.
A Bad Moms Christmas, reunites the dynamic team of Bad Moms: Writers/Directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, and Producer Suzanne Todd.
