This is an ok movie to watch. Personal I think they should just drop the romantic tag from the genre, then again I did not really find anything funny about the movie either so I guess that will have to go as well. Having said that this was not the worst representative of the genre, yes the humour is more crude than funny, but that is just the way things are going. Luckily these were a lot less and far between. So that was liveable. The crude factor is toned done more in this movie then in others of its kind. An ok movie I did not feel as bad renting it as I did not buy it. The only reason I would give this 3 stars instead of the 2 is because the acting is a notch above usual. There are a couple of times during speeches that actually make the movie worth watching.

After enjoying Bridesmaids that featured some of the cast of this film I was looking forward to watching this but at the time of release the reviews put me off. However, it was on TV the other night so I recorded it and watched it and I actually quite enjoyed it. It was better than I expected.

If you've got kids you will find it amusing what happens to the two happily married couples once they have kids! The groups other two single friends (Jason and Julie) who have known each other since college but have never been attracted to each other decide to have a baby together and share joint custody. They don't want to end up like their married friends. They would rather have the baby now and then look for 'the one'. Jason is a bit of a player. He can never hold a relationship down. Julie had a 9 year relationship that ended and now she finds it hard to meet anyone new. Her and Jason are great friends. They decide to have sex to make the baby which they find awkward but next she's giving birth and then they show their married friends up by coping admirably with their baby and their unusual situation.

Jason meets a woman (Megan Fox) and starts to get serious for the first time in his life but then Julie realises she's developed feelings for Jason. Since Jason is now dating she also starts to date (Edward Burns) but it's not long before she needs to let Jason know how she feels which interrupts their perfect little set up.

It's predictable but it's also funny and poignant in parts. I wasn't sure if the two leads had much chemistry or that I was truly convinced of Jason's turnaround in feelings but it was an enjoyable film (it's quite a long film) but I felt the ending was a bit sudden. I would have liked a little 'look into the future'.

Okay! So the 15 certificate tells you that the film has adult content but I guess it depends on the definition of adult. This film has good moments and performances but like so many in the genre is completely ruined by guttural sexual interplay trying to disguise itself as witty dialogue. Is this Hollywood's strategy to get men into cinemas to watch romcoms? Possibly the worst and most tasteless final scene in history-discuss! When Harry met Sally is Shakespeare compared to this film.

What a waste of an hour and a half. Trite, poorly acted (total waste of Chris O'Dowd's talent) rubbish. A cringe-worthy pile of nonsense which was the nearest visual thing to dragging nails down a blackboard. I thought with the Bridesmaids cast in tow it would have been at least half as brilliantly funny. But no. Don't waste your time. It was p**

By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 Jun 2013
Format: DVD
The film starts off with some crude over the top humor at an attempt to be cute and clever. It doesn't work well and nearly caused me to eject my DVD. It then settles down to a circle of friends, 2 couples plus Jason (Adam Scott) and Julie (Jennifer Westfeldt) who are very close friends who know each other too well to have a sexual relationship.

The film flash forwards 4 years. The couples have kids and their lives are in disarray. Julie surmises she wants to have a child, be a divorced mom so she can find the man of her dreams. Her friend Jason agrees to father the child and be "100% committed 50% of the time." Things work out as they have a nanny and most important Jason helps out with the child. Their home is neat and clean unlike their married friends. They have an open arrangement and it is time for the soul mates to move on and start dating other people. At this point the comedy takes a serious wane as a shallow film attempts to find some depth. It doesn't work.

Kristen Wiig, a fan favorite was excellent in her brief role. For people who like odd romantic comedies, this might do as a rental.

PARENTAL GUIDE: Frequent F-bombs, sex, brief Internet nudity, sex talk.

How disappointing this film is! I was so looking forward to watching the film after all the hype and its supposed similarities with 'Bridesmaids. It was so boring but I kept watching hoping it had been a slow start and would get better as it went along! Not to be, it was one of the worst films I have ever watched, so unfair to the league of good actors and actresses that were in it. The bottom line is it just wasn't funny, safe your money!!

Based on reading so may of the 1 star reviews I expecting something awful but it wasn't. It was a lovely story about friendship and love. The ending was pretty standard and obvious but the film as a whole was sweet, clever, witty and once again...lovely. The two lead roles were great, Adam Scott was fab.
