You know that famous shouted line from 1976’s Network? “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!” We may offend a few people by mentioning such a classic in a bit about a raunchy modern comedy from the folks who gave us The Hangover, but it fits. Three quite different mothers – or “moms”, for Americans apparently have an aversion to the letter ‘u’ – have had a gutful. A gutful! Sick of being overworked and receiving little to no appreciation for their efforts, they’re stressed to the max and basically decide to go on strike to enjoy a spot of them time. It’s a reversal of the typical male-dominated coarse comedy (for which we owe many thanks to Bridesmaids) with, of course, the odd political message because, well, it’s 2016.
