(This review may contain spoilers).
While I didn’t think this movie was quite as funny as I was anticipating… I did still find it really entertaining to watch. It was interesting to see the way the different moms dealt with their lives and having to be part of the organisation, too.
I enjoyed seeing the friendship that formed between Amy, Carla and Kiki… though Carla was definitely not someone I’d feel comfortable around in real life.
I did like seeing Amy’s relationships with her children, but I would have liked to see the same with Carla and Kiki… and potentially even the other moms.
I liked seeing that the three main characters had lives outside of them, even though Carla in particular didn’t seem that concerned with her responsibilities. I did feel a lot of sympathy for Kiki and I really didn’t like her husband.
It was nice to see Jane and Dylan had their own personalities, though I really did think Jane was a bit neurotic. And I really didn’t like Amy’s husband, even if he did make an effort at times. He seemed very much like an overgrown child.
It was nice to see that even the moms who weren’t very nice still seemed to have a lot of depth to them… though I did feel that Vicky was only there to provide comic relief.
I did like seeing Amy and Jessie form a relationship and it was interesting to see how Jane viewed their relationship. I did think the bake sale was really over the top… but at the same time, it made a lot of sense, considering the amount of ingredients people have to be careful about, due to food intolerances.
There were some sweet moments in this movie, in particular towards the end. And although I probably wouldn’t watch this movie again in the near future, I did find it amusing to watch the first time through.
