A Bad Moms Christmas-3/10 A Bad Moms Christmas is more proof the original was just a surprisingly funny and entertaining one-off comedy. The good chemistry between Mila Kunis, Kristen, Bell, and Kathyrn Hahn is still there, but they pretty much abandoned the moms taking back the holidays and Christmas storyline halfway through the movie. It's an odd transition, when the trio is basically dry humping the shopping mall Santa in the early stages of the movie, but towards the end, Kunis is having an emotional and heartfelt talk with her mother. I guess you could say they were trying to blend both worlds together, with the raunchiness and vulgarity and the feel good vibe with everyone learning the importance of family and the holidays, but it didn't work for me. The relationships between the moms and their daughters are good for a few laughs. Susan Sarandon is the irresponsible drifter, who only shows up, when she needs money from Kathyrn Hahn. Cheryl Hines is the obsessive and clingy mom, who can't let go of her baby girl (Kristen Bell), and Christine Baranski is bossy, demanding, openly racist, and snobbish, so Kunis wants nothing to do with her anymore. But a lot of the humor feels forced here. One prime example is the little girl, who plays Jay Hernandez's daughter repeatedly dropping the f-bomb, because it's supposed to be funny or SHOCKING, when a girl, who might be 4 or 5 years old curses over and over again. Bad Moms was something different, but A Bad Moms Christmas is basically another forgettable and predictable (the apologies, the moms making amends with their daughters, learning life lessons, etc.) feel good holiday comedy. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri- 7/10 The story leans too far on the drama side every now and then, but overall, TBOEM does a good job of blending drama and black comedy together. It's an emotional story of a mother, who won't quit, because she demands answers, and TBOEM has one hell of a cast. A strong performance from Frances McDormand, and everyone from Woody Harrelson to Sam Rockwell, John Hawkes, Caleb Landry Jones, and Peter Dinklage really delivers. I enjoyed TBOEM, but it's a tad bit overrated in my eyes. The critics are basically drooling over this (a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes), and we're in the middle of Oscar season, so I'll be shocked if this one doesn't receive a good amount of nominations.
