Jon Lucas and Scott Moore are directing the movie, previously titled “Bad Moms,” from their own script. Suzanne Todd (“Alice in Wonderland”) and Bill Block are producing.
The film follows three moms who embark on a quest to liberate themselves from their mundane, everyday chores, accidentally landing themselves on a collision course with their children’s school’s PTA president and her blindly devoted clique of “perfect” moms.
