Some good laughs here and there...
30 December 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Initially I must admit that I had expected a tad more laughs and all together enjoyable moments from the movie. That being said, don't get me wrong, I am not starting out by saying that "Fun Mom Dinner" is a bad movie. It just didn't fully live up to my expectations.

Yes, the movie was fun. Sure, it was. But it just wasn't fun enough to make you want to watch the movie a second time around. There were some genuinely funny situations to be experienced throughout the course of the movie, I will say that much. And that definitely counted in favor of the movie.

However, the storyline and plot told in "Fun Mom Dinner" just felt somewhat rushed and forced, which unfortunately meant that it gave way to some of the enjoyment of the movie.

The acting in the movie was good, and they had found some good actresses to perform as the leading roles, each bringing something unique to their movie and to their respective characters.

While "Fun Mom Dinner" is watchable, it is not as good as the "Bad Moms" movie was.
