6. Fun Mom Dinner

Part of what made Bad Moms a critical and commercial success was its honesty in acknowledging how exhausted moms are, and how they deserve to have a little fun. Fun Mom Dinner follows a similar suit, as four moms who have very little in common suddenly find themselves bonding through a mishap of drinking, drugs and karaoke. See if you can spot Adam Levine!

5. Stepmom

A heavier film than many of the others on this list, it follows a divorced mother who is dying of cancer, and forms an unlikely friendship with her ex’s new fiancee, in order to teach her how to raise her kids. Starring Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon, make sure you have the Kleenex on hand.

4. Bad Moms

What better way to prepare for the sequel than by rewatching the original? Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn give great performances as exhausted moms who decide to ditch the perfectionist lifestyle and let loose.
