In celebration of Mother’s Day this month, STACK salutes ten movie mums. They may traverse a diverse range of genres and eras, but their love, dedication, and commitment to motherhood remains constant.
OK, so nobody would go see a movie called Good Mums, right? But were this trio really all that bad? Seems like they resemble most modern mums; flawed, overworked and hoping motherhood doesn’t spell the end of FUN. And, let’s face it, which mother among us wouldn’t want to wax Justin Hartley’s private parts?
Together the trio represents the gamut of mumhood, from Kristen Bell’s stay-at-home mum-of-four pushover, Kiki, and Mila Kunis’s working mum Amy, through to Kathryn Hahn’s bawdy sex-mad single mum Carly. The 2017 sequel, Bad Moms 2, introduced even badder grandmas, played by Sarah Sarandon, Christine Baranski and Cheryl Hines.
