Product Description

Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids), Chris O'Dowd (Bridesmaids), Megan Fox (Transformers), Adam Scott (Leap Year), Jennifer Westfeldt (Kissing Jessica Stein), and Edward Burns (Saving Private Ryan) star in Friends With Kids, a daring ensemble comedy about a close-knit circle of thirtysomething friends at that moment in life when children arrive and everything changes.

Jason (Scott) and Julie (Westfeldt), the last two singles in the group, observe the effect that kids have had on their friends' relationships and wonder if there's a better way. Eventually they decide to have a kid together – but date other people. There are big laughs and unexpected emotional truths as this unconventional 'experiment' leads everyone in the group to question the nature of friendship, family and, finally, true love.

4.0 out of 5 stars So much better than expected. 14 Sep 2013
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Friends I wouldn't be keeping, no Kid-ding! 1 May 2014
Format:DVD
'Bridesmaids' was one of the more horrible offerings of it respective year, a crazily unfunny, excruciating, min-numbing exercise in desperation humour, which in the end actually forgot the humour, despite a few good lines offered from Chris O'Dowd an no one else, but it won't be the first time the beer and curry crowd got a thing wrong in such a fell sweep. And that's one of the many big problems afflicting this ill-conceived knock-about spinning top of bratty strops, shrieking harpies and backward musings on what it apparently means to have and keep a relationship going once you have kids. Which would be a good idea, but the film refuses to explore that at all, and just presents us with three couplings, two marriages that don't strike particularly convincing and only turn into snipes and snarls whenever the so-called script puts them on screen, whereas most of the time we're spent with the two singletons that decide on the killer idea to have a baby, and just not worry about getting together, just bring it up between them, but not as a unit. What a shining nugget of wisdom for a supposedly intelligent pair of adults to make, as that's so what society is based on. And, sadly, the dread non-humour and scatterbrain yelling of 'Bridesmaids' seems to be this film's nearest companion, and for me that turns this tasteless candyfluff into scrap, and that is truly sad.

Sad because it didn't need to be this way, after all the writer-director (and star) Jennifer Westfeldt made the charming, funny and memorable Woody Allen-esque 'Kissing Jessica Stein' just over ten years ago, but none of that film's witty, acerbic, earthy,winsome and somehow endearingly real and expertly characterised players are present here, and that's criminal.

Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars WE KNOW EACH OTHER TOO WELL 16 Jun 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars What has happened to romantic comedy 4 Mar 2013
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable Rom-Com 6 Aug 2012
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Friends with Kids is the story of long-time friends Julie (Jennifer Westfeldt) & Jason (Adam Scott) who live in the same building. After seeing how their friends deal with their own recent additions to their respective broods, Jason & Julie muse about how it would be easier to meet 'the one' if you already had a child - given the biological time constraints. After this idea gains traction, the two decide to well y'know and Joe is born. But as Jason & Julie glide through parenthood with their friendship giving them an invincible veneer of mutual respect & planning, it becomes clear that the dynamic in the relationship between the two has changed. Will things click into place that easily?

Friends with kids is a fairly straight-forward premise. Whilst at first I figured it was going to be a film about being single whilst all of your friends have kids (something I am beginning to experience!) it becomes clear that this is more about friends having kids; together. Jon Hamm (Mad Men & Westfeldt's partner in real-life!) & Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) play a volatile couple whose relationship is based on sex, whilst Maya Rudolph (also Bridesmaids) and Chris O'Dowd (whom incidentally starred with Wiig & Rudolph in Bridesmaids!!) have a much more stable but slightly frayed relationship. This triad of relationship types allows the various clichés to play out to the respective characters.
