Bad Moms (2016) **REVIEW**

When it comes to hard working moms they will do everything for their children but just sometimes they need to relax and do something for them. A relaxed and rested mom is a good mom.

Amy is the mother of two children, boy and a girl, also married to this lazy and selfish guy she met as teenager and they married early. She finds him masturbating on cam with another girl and decides to kick him out and change her ways. She’s stressed out with work and the kids expect her to do everything and not help out. Until Amy changes her ways. She befriends two women, one is a partying mom with and the other is a mom of 4 who’s overworked and stressed. How could this film be funny?

Amy decided to go against the “perfect moms” and become the PTA President and now all hell breaks lose as she also tries to handle her kids. The script is brilliant and casting is even better. We see some hilarious scene’s where all these women just try and it doesn’t work out. Like Amy trying to find a man for the night at a bar but fails so she ends up kissing the hot widow guy from the school her kids go to.

Bad Mom’s is one of the best comedies coming from 2016 with an all female cast – I’d say it’s hilarious and loved every moment of it. Don’t slack, get your laugh on now!

Actors: Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn, Kristen Bell, Christina Applegate, Jada Pinkett Smith, Annie Mumolo, Oona Laurence,  Jay Hernandez and many more.

Southpaw (2015) **REVIEW**

Southpaw is a dark and powerful drama that anyone should see. Jake Gyllenhaal is brilliant  as the boxer Billy Hope.  He is a pro boxer who’s great but forgotten why he starting boxing and forgot about his talent.

During a a fight after a charity with a rival there’s gunshots going around – Billy’s wife Maureen is hit and dies in his arms. Now Billy have to take care of their daughter, house and bills. But since Billy took his wife’s passing very hard he lost his daughter to social services, lost his house and is broke.

Billy tries his luck at a gym he used to train at when he was younger so get his life back and remember why he started boxing. He tries his hardest to see his daughter – Billy still got visitation rights but supervised. The owner at this gym, Tick,  where Billy trains gets him a job to clean the place up and he gets to train when he likes. During Billy’s time at this gym he gets a chance to do a charity boxing game and wants to go back to pro boxing. He gets his chance and wants Tick to train him, because he could train Billy differently.. During his training period he gets more and more chances to see his daughter unsupervised.

During his fight that happens in Vegas you can see how he all of the sudden fights differently. Before the accident of his wife he fight mean and ugly. Now – he fights smart. Billy gets a chance to come back to life and have his daughter again.

Southpaw is a film everyone should see. It’s emotional and powerful. Jake Gyllenhaal is absolutely brilliant and he could capture this boxer’s life perfectly. His daughter played by Oona Laurence did an outstanding job too. I admit I did cry at points because of these two actors had an amazing chemistry on screen.

You see actors like Jake Gyllenhaal, Oona Laurence, Rachel McAdams, Forest Whitaker, 50 Cent, Miguel Gomez, Naomie Harris and many more.
