Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn Deliver Raunchy Laughs in ‘Bad Moms’ Preview

CinemaCon 2016: R-rated comedy shocks and delights movie exhibitors — is it the next “Bridesmaids”?

STX Entertainment screened the best preview footage thus far at CinemaCon 2016, and there wasn’t a cape, alien or Civil War battlefield in sight.

It was the raunchy, hard-R motherhood comedy “Bad Moms” that made the annual convention of movie exhibitors laugh long and loud at Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn flying in the face of helicopter parenting.

The trio of women smoke, drink, make out with each other and throw middle fingers up at a sect of prim mothers (Christina Applegate, Annie Mumolo and Jada Pinkett Smith) in the film from directors Scott Moore and Jon Lucas.

Kunis plays a harried working single mom who is driven to the edge by a militant PTA president (Applegate). After a contentious bake sale meeting where moms are given a laundry list of dietary eliminations that would make Gwyneth Paltrow proud (no sugar, butter, salt, gluten, BPAs, etc) — Kunis throws in the towel on being the perfect parent.

Bell and Hahn are all too happy to join in, indulging on processed foods, drinking straight from the bottle and throwing ragers — while the perfect moms make it their mission to take them down.

The crowd ate up the footage, and cheered when the full cast hit the stage to join STX Motion Picture Chairman Adam Fogelson.

“I’m the only one on the stage with teenagers … I was ready to do something outrageous,” Pinkett Smith said.

It was no coincidence when Fogelson pointed out Mumolo’s co-writing credit on “Bridesmaids” — the Oct. 6 release could be a worthy successor to that female-driven, R-rated comedy classic.
