A Bad Moms Christmas appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.40:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. The film offered a terrific visual presentation.
From start to finish, sharpness looked strong. With virtually no softness on display, the film appeared concise and well-defined.
No issues with jagged edges or moiré effects occurred, and edge enhancement was absent. I also failed to detect any source flaws.
In terms of colors, the movie featured some orange and teal, though the Christmas setting allowed for a warmer range of tones. Within those parameters, the hues looked positive, as they showed nice clarity and breadth and came out well.
Blacks were dark and deep, while shadows appeared full and smooth. I thought the movie consistently looked great.
I thought that the DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack of Moms Christmas seemed fine but it didn’t excel because of a lack of ambition. Like most comedies, the movie featured a limited soundfield that strongly favored the forward channels. It showed nice stereo spread to the music as well as some general ambience from the sides.
Panning was decent, and the surrounds usually kicked in basic reinforcement. A few scenes opened up better but most of the movie stayed with limited imaging.
Audio quality appeared good. Speech was natural and distinct, with no issues related to edginess or intelligibility.
Effects sounded clean and accurate, with good fidelity and no signs of distortion. Music was perfectly fine, as the score and songs showed positive dimensionality. This track was good enough for a “B-“ but it didn’t particularly impress.
Only a handful extras show up here, and we find a Gag Reel. It runs six minutes, 36 seconds and presents the usual mix of goofs and giggles, though we get a few alternate lines as well.
Additional Scenes fill a total of three minutes, 52 seconds. None of these offer true “deleted scenes”, so this becomes a compilation of short snippets and alternate lines. It’s watchable in that regard.
Finally, we find a Crew Music Video. The two-minute, 25-second clip offers the crew’s version of the video the cast performs over the end credits. It’s probably fun for them but less so for the rest of us.
The disc opens with ads for All I See Is You, The Man Who Invented Christmas, Marshall and The Foreigner. We also get two trailers for Moms Christmas.
Little more than a rehash of the first film, A Bad Moms Christmas lacks inspiration. Due to a good cast, it musters an occasional laugh, but most of it feels stale and predictable. The Blu-ray boasts excellent visuals with adequate audio and minor supplements. Moms becomes forgettable holiday entertainment.
