“Christina Applegate’s bake sale briefing sets up the hilarious Bad Moms trailer that has been viewed and shared more than 10 million times,” said Elizabeth Frank, executive vice president and chief content & programming officer, AMC Theatres. “With that kind of enthusiasm, we thought, ‘forget the bake sale! Let moms fundraise at the movies.’”

About the Film
From STX Entertainment, Bad Moms is a highly anticipated comedy directed and written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. The film stars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn with Jada Pinkett Smith and Christina Applegate.
Amy Mitchell has a seemingly perfect life – a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she's over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she's about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities – going on a wild binge of long-overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence – putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.
