Why is Bad Moms rated R? Bad Moms is rated R by the MPAA for sexual material, full frontal nudity, language throughout, and drug and alcohol content.

Violence: Characters verbally argue and insult each other. Drunken characters walk through a grocery store where they open food packages and liquor bottles then pour the contents into their mouths and over their bodies—they also challenge a security guard and make a mess of the store. Characters slap each other.

Sexual Content: When a wife walks in on her husband who using a computer, we see him quickly doing something with his pants (implying he was masturbating). The wife then asks to see the porn he’s watching, and a completely naked woman is seen on the computer screen. It turns out she is “live” and not recorded porn, and the husband confesses to having a long-term virtual affair. A man and woman begin sexual relations and the scene cuts to the end of their experience with the two of them in bed – we see his chest and she is covered with a sheet. A woman makes frequent overtures to various men within their school community and overtly asks them for sex; later she threatens wives that she will have sex (she uses a crude term) with their husbands if the wives don’t support a specific PTA candidate. Many scenes feature crude, explicit and frank sexual discussions.

Language: Profanity is heard throughout. Over 35 sexual expletives are used along with various crude terms for sex and anatomy, clinical anatomical words, scatological slang, racial slurs, terms of deity, and other milder forms of swearing.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters drink alcohol throughout the film and often appear inebriated. Jokes and positive references are made about drug use. An adult hides marijuana in a student’s locker with the purpose of having the student expelled. A school principal implies that he uses marijuana and enjoys it. Although drunken characters are not seen driving, they journey from place to place while intoxicated.
