The movie's reception skewed more toward the negative side, with a 29% "rotten" rating and 47% audience score on RottenTomatoes.com. "Featuring twice the moms but roughly half the laughs, A Bad Moms Christmas is a slapdash holiday sequel that falls short of the original with a disappointing dearth of good cheer," the site wrote.

Sony Corp.'s "Only the Brave" debuted at No. 2 on the VOD chart for the measured period.

The film made $18.3 million domestically and $4.8 million overseas for a global take of about $23.1 million, compared to a $38 million production budget, according to Box Office Mojo.
Most critics and regular audiences liked the film, which received an 87% "fresh" rating and 92% audience score on RottenTomatoes.com. "Only the Brave's impressive veteran cast and affecting fact-based story add up to a no-frills drama that's just as stolidly powerful as the real-life heroes it honors," the site wrote. Metacritic's score was a 72 out of 100 and the user score on the site was a 7.5, while IMDb's score was a 7.8.
