The fun at the Red Carpet Premiere for the Bad Moms new movie and two-days of extra pampering for moms who deserve every inch of it have been an incredibly filling, fulfilling life experience for me and a dozen of other Moms.
Los Angeles is the place for big and small movie events, press junkets, incredible meetings and unexpected surprises. The Bad Moms was all that and so much more in the hearts and souls of all who had a privilege to attend.
Movie Opens In Theaters July 29, 2016
We started our journey into the weekend with an amazing presentation and screening of the movie itself, cool all-you-can-eat foods and drinks, and a few surprises. The whole Bad Moms press and guest event took place at the iHeartRadio at the Burbank Studios, the former home of “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.” The festive atmosphere, enthusiasm to see the movie and meet new people – all that was definitely a high point of the Bad Moms press event.
First huge surprise was that all Bad Moms actresses showed up on stage just before the screening. They are all of my favorite women in the movie industry: Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn, Annie Mumolo, Jada Pnkett-Smith, and Christina Applegate.
Just a few moments later, yet another surprise appeared in front of a huge audience – Flo Rida! He was amazing! Basically, we had to enjoy a concert before the screening of the Bad Moms movie! I can’t say enough how excited the entire audience was!
We Were Treated Like Queens
The days spent in LA screening the Bad Moms movie, engaging with actors, directors and producers in interviews were also accompanied by deep, deep pampering. Yes, every single one of us was scheduled for a spa treatment, hair and beauty overhaul. And in-between of all interviews and work sessions, we could get a 10-minute neck-and-back massages.
THAT is a Royal Treatment every MOM Deserves!
FUN Was The Word of the Day
There was no single moment to stop and take a breather. The days were filled with ample interview sessions and an amazing opportunity to network and learn about movie craft. We were offered opportunities to take photo and slow movie sessions. It was fun, and gave us some idea how hard it is to MAKE A MOVIE.
People & Events Were Unforgettable
Interviewing celebrities is always something that is unique and very precious. We learn so much from close interaction. Celebrities are people who have happy and sour days, children and problems, successes and bad days as well. Having opportunities to ask them about their lives and professional achievement is a rare and very humble instance indeed. This time around, we met in a very close setting with actresses from the Bad Moms movie and its makers and directors.
We had a very intimate environment to chat about the movie and ask each one of them about their personal thoughts about the concept presented in the BAD MOMS movie.
Mila Kunis and Kathryn Hahn shared their daily tribulations with their little ones. Mila who has a 22-month-old baby was really cool to share her bad-mom moments from real life situations. The atmosphere the whole conversation was taking place was intimate, sincere and very caring. These two actresses have my high-five for their share of motherhood they need to fulfill every single day in addition to rigorous work schedule and doing it often with their kids away from the the filming stage.
During our press junket and interview, it was neat to find out how common were the struggles and daily guilts these actresses were going through. Juggling children, motherly responsibilities, professional careers – all is not that ideal as it may seem. We are all people with the similar struggles and tribulations when it comes to motherhood.
The directors and writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore shared their process of writing a script for the Bad Moms movie. What was unique in their practice – they involved and interviewed their spouses and their friends, collecting anectodes and stories of the bad-mom days and instances. What they shared was hilarious and very easily recognizable – being a mom, it is so obvious to spot similarities of a motherhood, no matter who’s going through it!
When Suzanne Todd, who has produced dozens of our favorites like – Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Austin Powers, Die Hard 2, Lethal Weapon 2 and many more, – was impressed when she saw the movie script in front of her. It stroke her with authenticity and meticulous details that only moms could know. She agreed to produce the movie right there, on the spot.
Get ready to have a BAD MOMS Day on July 29th! Gather together the moms you know and head over to the Bad Moms Movie. Have Fun! Leave all guilt and incongruencies of life behind. Snatch some tickets to the big day of BAD MOMS movie!
