Everyone's back from last year's undemanding adult comedy, plus some starry new cast members, for a holiday romp that once again provides a few solid laughs. Alas, it's also just as unambitious, never pushing its characters very far or coming up with anything terribly original. But filmmakers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore know that sometimes audiences just want dumb entertainment.
In the week before Christmas, Amy (Mila Kunis) has reached breaking point with all of her motherly responsibilities. So she's delighted that her boyfriend (Jay Hernandez) and kids just want to have a mellow holiday. Then her hyper-demanding mother (Christine Baranski) arrives with enormous plans that Amy's meek dad (Peter Gallagher) quietly goes along with. So Amy turns to her best friends Kiki and Carla (Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn) for help. And they've also been invaded: Kiki's far-too-involved mother (Cheryl Hines) arrives for three weeks, while Carla's biker-chick mom (Susan Sarandon) is a gambling addict in need of cash. So Amy, Kiki and Carla team up to take back control of Christmas.

Mila Kunis has psychic powers. At least, according to her husband Ashton Kutcher. He tells Ellen DeGeneres that she predicted both Donald Trump becoming president and the name of their second child. Of course, one of them was 50/50 and the other was their own choice, but he's still convinced.

The 39 year old actor and father of two received the Robert D. Ray Pillar of Character Award in Des Moines, Iowa on Saturday evening (April 8th), and recognised the irony of the prize considering his name had been smeared across the tabloids just a few years ago with rumours of infidelity in his previous marriage to Hollywood star Moore.
“I’m also probably the first person to get this award for character who had, like, his name splashed across every gossip magazine as an adulterer like five years ago,” he told the attendees.

Everyone loves a real life love story and that of one of Hollywood's favourite couples, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, is no exception. So just how did these 'That 70s Show' co-stars become a romantic couple in the first place? Apparently, absence does make the heart grow fonder.
