Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn return, looking to put the ass back in Christmas. That’s about as witty as it gets in this rancid sequel to an equally rank forerunner. What’s funnier than three bad moms? How about three bad moms and their mothers! I love Kathryn Hahn, and as much as I wanted to laugh while watching her wax a himbo’s taint, as presented it just wasn’t funny. Ditto the rest of filmmakers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore’s contrived inanities. The trio of bad mom’s moms (Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines, and an incommensurate Susan Sarandon) bond loudly during a climactic cuss-out at Midnight Mass, yet no one in the church let’s loose with so much as one “Shush!” As Mila Kunis’ Amy might (and frequently does) say, “What the fuck?” As for forced happy endings, I quit counting after the third one. Merry Christmas, bitches! (2017) — Scott Marks
