Bad Moms, Storks and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

View Chris Kavan's Profile

After a few weeks of some pretty good bulletins, we have a shorter one this time around. Only two major releases are finding ratings glory - an ensemble, female-driven comedy that I think actually looks pretty fun from what I've seen and an animated film that gives a new meaning to word "delivery", I should be happy, I'm guessing next week everyone is going to be out for the 4th so I don't even know if we'll be getting an update. So, here we go I guess.

The last time a female ensemble comedy looked this good, we got Bridesmaids. Now, Bad Moms looks a bit different than Bridesmaids, but it has the potential to get the same results. The cast does look great - Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn play the three main moms in questions. These mothers are fed up - with being the "perfect" homemakers and being on their best behavior. Thus, they begin to act in an irresponsible, adventurous, wild and all-out fun manner. This doesn't sit well with PTA queen bee (Christina Applegate) and her clique of perfect moms (also including Jada Pinkett Smith) and what about the children? Poor Oona Laurence and Emjay Anthony are likely going to be scarred for life - or the coolest kids on the block. Like I said, the movie looks like a ton of fun - whippets, alcohol, rampant cursing - hey it's Rated R for sexual material, full frontal nudity, language throughout, and drug and alcohol content - mean, everything that makes mothers everywhere proud!

We have already had two, huge animated hits this year - both from Disney - in the form of Zootopia and current box-office champion, Finding Dory. We have also had Angry Birds (which did decent) and Warner Bros. is jumping in to the action soon enough with Storks. The film follows the age-old story of storks delivering babies, only they have been phased out. Now they deliver packages for a major corporation. But one day, top delivery stork, Junior (Andy Samberg) accidentally activates the Baby Maker and finds himself with a completely unauthorized bundle of joy. He has to make this very special delivery before his bosses find out and enlists the help of the only human around, Tulip (Katie Crown) in order to finish the job before he gets fired. Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell, Kelsey Grammer, Key and Peele and Danny Trejo round out the vocal cast. The story seems quite fun and original but with so many big animated films, I just hope it doesn't get overlooked. Best case scenario, it may wind up like the Croods. Hopefully it does a bit better than Angry Birds, but we'll see. Rated PG for mild action and some thematic elements.
