Hey, all you self-proclaimed "bad moms" (it's okay, we totally embrace this terminology) -- our favorite Bad Moms Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn are coming back to theaters with A Bad Moms Christmas. It's perfect timing, too, because as the super-stressful holiday season fast approaches, a #BadMomsNightOut with these perfectly imperfect ladies is worth more than all the spiked candy cane cocoa in the pitcher. Yaaasss. So let's talk about the upcoming movie -- CafeMom got to go behind the scenes, and we want to tell you all about it.

  • Here's a sneak peak from the set.

    During the filming back in MayCafeMom headed down to their Atlanta set (yes, even though the film is set in Chicago) -- courtesy of STX Entertainment -- to watch several scenes being filmed in a local shopping mall. We also got to hang out with the actresses and filmmakers for some interviews.

    (Sorry if it sounds like we're bragging, but we are.)

  • We even got to be extras.

    Here's CafeMom staffer Alaisha Key (left) getting in on the set action and holding the clapboard. Wardrobe hooked her up with winter garb so she could be an extra behind the actresses in one scene (please don't let us end up on the cutting room floor!).  

    One of the fun scenes we got to watch during the filming was Kathryn, Mila, and Kristen sampling apple cider outside of Williams-Sonoma. Kathryn's character Carla adds booze to the samples and the funny ladies improv'd for a good 15–20 minutes, which was hilarious.

  • That amazing scene, of course, made the trailer.

    The whole trailer is a must-see, and the apple cider–spiking clip starts at 1:38.

    P.S. Kathryn Hahn absolutely kills us.

  • And did we mention Christine Baranski, Susan Sarandon, and Cheryl Hines join the cast as our favorite characters' moms?

    OMG, we're so excited! 

    Here's what the actresses had to say about bringing the bad moms' moms into the story line:

    Kristen Bell: I think [having Kiki's mom in the movie] made my character more dimensional because -- you saw the journey we took in the first one where we were taking charge of our life and [then] were knocked a few pegs down when our mothers come to visit.

    Kathryn Hahn: Yes, it was like there was only one person in the world that would make Carla feel small and that would be her mother. So, it was kind of perfect that it ends up being Susan Sarandon.

    Mila KunisI hope that [the movie] makes women or mothers or daughters kind of understand where the other one's coming from -- because we ultimately will show three different perspectives of a mother-daughter relationship.
