'A Bad Moms Christmas' not hokey pokey: Mila Kunis
Los Angeles, Actress Mila Kunis says "A Bad Moms Christmas" is not a crazy story, but a true account of what every mother and father goes through every year during Christmas celebrations.
"'A Bad Moms Christmas' is everyone's Christmas. It's just what everybody goes through every year in Christmas. It's not hokey pokey, there's no crazy story, in laws coming. It's just what we as women and what my dad have to deal with during these 6 days leading upto Christmas. These are hell of getting Christmas perfect and magical," Kunis said in a statement.
"A Bad Moms Christmas" is a sequel of "Bad Moms", which had challenged the "perfect mother" stereotype in a fun way and was a huge success last year.
The new film, which also features Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn, is written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.
The holiday-themed sequel revolves around the life of three mothers, who decline to ruin their Christmas by doing all the chores, cooking, wrapping, decorating, shopping and looking after everybody.
On the success of the first part, Kunis said: "It lacks judgment and it has so much empathy towards women in the world.
"When I read the script, I was like, 'Oh! I have to do this movie because I am feeling A, B, C and D and so are all these characters and they get me and I get them'. I think that's what made the movie so special is that everybody, whether or not you are a mom or otherwise, you can relate to the characters."
