The three E's: Entertain. Educate. Elevate (It is possible!). A 3.0 Feminist film."Kramer vs Kramer" for the 10s. On this one Streep 'quits' to let herself go, to oversleep, to underwork, to find herself, to party. Every Carla's lines oughta be printed on a t-shirt. She's the Ari Gold of single moms. An ode to motherhood. Those ending credits with the lead actresses' mothers sharing her own experience about ∇
God, these pre-made scripts! It's like white, wealthy, straight people are thinking: hey, maybe it's time we allow mothers to be themselves, so let's give it to them in the form of a romantic comedy. The sad part is that I can imagine so many moms relating to this, actually mirroring from this popcorn parenting abcs for dummies. So, so sad!
A lot of fun, largely for the fact that Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn are all so eminently likable and charismatic here. Also appreciate how, despite the fact this project was helmed by men, there is a decided focus on female feelings and emotions here, especially that of perfectionist behavior and inadequacy amongst competition. Even if it's pretty broadly drawn, it's a ton of fun.
Kathryn Hahn was a joy, but couldn't save this totally unfunny cringefest. How people liked it, I cannot imagine. I wasted a rare trip to an outdoor cinema on this incompetently made pile of movie crap, so I can't forgive it.
The synopsis says "Amy has a great husband, overachieving children" --> her husband is caught cheating on her in the first 10 minutes and one of her kids brags about getting a D in science. OKAY WIKIPEDIA OKAY
Una commedia davvero divertente. Semplice, senza fastidiose volgarità. Non sono mamma, ma sicuramente il conflitto tra essere mamme "cattive" o "buone" è piuttosto verosimile. Il trio delle protagoniste funziona alla grande, con le loro differenti personalità. La storia non aveva nulla di particolarmente originale e il finale è ovviamente scontato, ma è stata una visione molto piacevole. 3 stelle alla simpatia.
