Receiving Best Comedy film at the People’s Choice Awards and a classy performance by Kunis on her character of a ‘break-craving’ mom is something to look forward.

Blood Ties (2013)

Blood Ties (2013)

Although it wasn’t a major hit, this movie sees Mila Kunis in a role she doesn’t often play. Kunis plays the character of Natalie, the girlfriend of a man who recently got released from prison.

Ever wanted to be something so bad that you would kill for it? Well, this film took it quite literally. Kunis plays a student of criminology, who yearns to be an FBI agent and is even willing to kill off her classmates for the sake of it. The film wasn’t applauded so greatly and was actually not a sequel to Christian Bale starrer American Psycho, initially. Kunis showed embarrassment over the idea of this being a sequel as it was related only because the first part did well at the Box-office.

 

The Color of Time (2012)

The Color of Time (2012)

This movie tells the lovely story about the poet, C. K. Williams, recounting his life through all his poems. Kunis plays his wife, Catherine, in this 72-minute film. The film is a great visual expression but the story doesn’t have much on it, a confusing watch.

 

A Bad Moms Christmas (2017)

A Bad Moms Christmas (2017)

Rebelling against all expectations, the “bad moms” Carla, Amy, and Kiki are back to have some party fun for Christmas.

Santa with Muscles (1996)

Mila Kunis plays the little Sarah of an orphanage in this kids’ Christmas movie starring Hulk Hogan, who thinks himself to be the real Santa Claus and attempts to save all the children at the orphanage from a group of evil scientists.

Boot Camp (2008)

Kunis plays the unruly Sophie who escapes from a rehab centre called “Boot Camp” with her boyfriend, Ben. When a teen named Danny is killed, many secrets surrounding the camp come to light.

Hell and Back (2015)

When their friend happens to open a portal to Hell, two best friends enter the underworld in order to save him. In this adult animation film, Mila Kunis voices the female demon named Deema, who helps out when these two men are in trouble. Who better for the role, right? The film is a verbal treat than visual and is certainly not for kids. A purely adult animation which didn’t fall great on critic’s good books.

 

Tony ‘n’ Tina’s Wedding (2004)

Tony ‘n’ Tina’s Wedding (2004)

Kunis plays Tina Nunzio in this comedy-drama about an Italian-American wedding.

Wonder Park (2019)

Slated for this March, the movie is about a wildly imaginative girl who dreams of an amusement park with wild animals.
