Jane marie I miss you so much!!! Tbh I’ve barely visited jezebel at all ever since you and milihelen got booted. You rock don’t ever change.
I choked on my lunch. You’re my fave.
As a mom to a 3-year-old, I completely agree: motherhood is damn difficult, and also the most basic-ass job on the planet.
JANE YOU ARE BACK
Pretty much all of this. I saw it with my girlfriend, and while she was quite amused I spent most of the time annoyed. I think I may have chuckled at some point, but it wasn’t memorable enough to remember.
Sick Peter Thiel burn.
Thank you! She is always a side character and always steals the show.
It’s almost become a matter of opposites. You can be the strict mom who is a wonderful mom but not considered fun. Or you can be the fun mom with less rules but you’re a very bad mom. If the movie could make fun of that in a smart, funny way we’d probably love it. It sounds like this is the wrong movie. (I know there…
Ewww I hate mommy-policing. My mom is the ultimate mommy-police. My sister will send out photos of the kids eating dinner in a group text and my mom will respond back with “ZOMG! The plate looks too hot, they will get 3rd degree burns. You should know better than to feed them hot food!”
No, she was doing her job the way other critics do their job which is why they have special screenings for the press.
I like her, too.
this movie looks questionable but why isn’t kathryn hahn in everything? always? all the time?
It really sounds like this film is exactly what your would expect for a movie about motherhood written by men. There’s a lot to explore when it comes to being a ‘bad’ mom in a culture where mothering trends tend to keep women tied to their babies for longer and longer (extended breastfeeding, co-sleeping, etc), yet…
You were taking notes on your phone in a movie theater? You are not a bad mom, just a bad person.
dear Jezebel, more movie reviews from Jane Marie please. Pay any price
As a person who doesn’t have a child yet, I agree with you. Moms now loooove to play the martyr role when it comes to being a mom. At the same time, I can see why maybe some people would want this type of movie to be made, if it was made to truly make fun of those uptight mom types who take it way too seriously? My…
Look, I came in here specifically to talk about the awesome that is Goldie. That outfit; that microphone grip. Yaas Miss Goldie. Well done mom.
probably because every sane person expected you to have an adorable, perfect, well-behaved golden nugget of a child :)
Is Goldie her real name or a reflection of her hair color? I hate calling kids cute, they tend to fixate on it too much. But if there was some video of that karaoke I could extoll her talents!
