You see badmouthing has never been good and I am sure will never be. No matter whether it has to do with your Employer or anyone or anything else. Don’t spend the time of your life concentrating on speaking the negative. Just don’t do it. It’ll never serve you any good.
Still time there are cases when we change jobs because there are SO many bad things we would LOVE to dwell about at the interview, but always remember that if you sound too negative your attempts of selling you to the new company will totally collapse. Also the interviewer might think that you are likely to speak alike about them in future and it will give a spare moment to the Hiring Manager to consider if your candidature is worth hiring.
At the same time, you have to be open during the interview and if you feel you want the Manager to understand that you’re leaving your current employer because not everything there is the way it was advertised, speak softly and don’t go into details. Just say that the advertisement turned out to be a lot better than the product itself. Speak with hints, but never go into names or actual cases. Just say that you don’t feel right to speak bad about the company, because there are good things too there and you don’t want the wrong impression to be made. I am sure every person in that interview will appreciate if you speak this way. It will characterize you big as a person.
In the end, general picture of someone badmouthing looks so cheap. Don’t place yourself into it. Stay out. It will pay you off in the long run.
