Movie review: Hit-and-miss 'Bad Moms' tries to offer Mila Kunis and Co. a good night out

It's a peculiar bit of Hollywood logic, having the two guys who wrote "The Hangover" write and direct a movie called "Bad Moms." As if by some transitive property of film comedy, their having written a smash hit of men being oblivious, immature and reckless somehow makes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore the ideal candidates to explore the difficulties modern mothers face to balance conflicting responsibilities with the need to remain individualized people too.

Interview: Jenna Ortega adds voicing Disney's Princess Isabel to her repertoire

When we first found out that we were meeting Jenna Ortega, we were so excited. She has to be one of the hardest working actresses around! She is working on four shows right now and we think that is unbelievable: Disney Channel's "Stuck in the Middle," The CW's "Jane the Virgin," Disney's new animated series, "Elena of Avalor" and Radio City Music Hall's "New York Spectacular at Radio City."

Movie review: 'Bad Moms' is a shoddy mess that rings hollow

There's a scene halfway through "Bad Moms," wherein a PTA meeting full of suburban moms turns into a full-on frat house-style rager. Moms in sweater sets, khakis and sensible sneakers chug liquor straight from the bottle, make out, huff whippets, crash tricycles and urinate on lawns, all in glorious slow motion, hair and spittle flying to a pulsing pop beat. It's featured heavily in the trailer for the film, and is the best scene in the movie. Bad mothers? Shut your mouth.
