‘Bad Moms’ is released in Irish cinemas this week. The rom-com, starring Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Jada Pinkett Smith and Christina Applegate, tells the story of three over worked and stressed moms, who finally ditch their responsibilities and remember what it is like to have fun.
To celebrate the release of ‘Bad Moms’, Movies.ie has gathered together 10 facts about the movie that you really ought to know…
1. Original Cast
Originally, ‘Bad Moms’ was set to star Leslie Mann and be produced by Judd Apatow, but when the two dropped out due to scheduling conflicts, Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate, and Kristen Bell joined the film.
Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis previously worked together on ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ eight years ago.
All of the lead actresses in the film are mothers, and Mila Kunis is now expecting her second child with husband Ashton Kutcher.
4. Wedding Ring
The wedding ring that Mila Kunis wears in the film is her real life wedding ring.
5. Family Connection
Nancy Priddy plays the mother of Christina Applegate’s character Gwendolyn. In a nice family connection, Priddy is Applegate’s real life mother. Priddy previously starred with her daughter in the 2002 film ‘The Sweetest Thing’.
Directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore made their directorial debut with the comedy film ‘21 & Over’, but had already written the screenplays for ‘Four Christmases’, ‘The Hangover’ and ‘The Change-Up’. This is their first female-led film.
7. Tik Tok
Singer Kesha was spotted on set and apparently filmed scenes with Mila Kunis, but sadly her scenes ended up being cut from the final film.
8. Together Again
Kristen Bell and Annie Mumolo previously starred together in ‘The Boss’, where they played enemies.
Martha Stewart has a cameo in the film as herself, and Canadian blogger and YouTube personality Lilly Singh also appears in the film.
