We are bad moms no one is perfect

I think the movie is not that bad and yes there’s some inappropriate stuff but if your mature enough to watch it that’s fine and I think there is plenty of relatable shit in this movie. Hell im a mom and I know the struggle of half of the shit it’s a good movie and everyone over judging it. quit being a Gwendolyn and being uptight you are not perfect.
