Surprisingly, didn't mind this one. Good cast lift what is a pretty dull topic. A few laughs and a few cringes and a happy ending.

Friends with Kids is not without its charms. Star Jennifer Westfeldt also wrote and directed. She was responsible for co-writing and co-starring in the hit independent film Kissing Jessica Stein with Heather Juergensen in 2001. Overall Westfeldt has fashioned a humorous twist on ...

The only thing funny in this film is Jennifer Westfeldt pretending she's in her mid thirties. Meow. Adam Scott looks evil, he has a weird 'I've just licked Dogs piss off a stinging nettle and I think I liked it' expression on his face that makes me want to throw things at it. Jus...

Friends With Kids was a good surprise. I'm usually not a fan of rom-coms because they always have the same formula with so-so acting. This film happened to have a good script with good acting. It was smart and honest. I enjoy the type of films where you can say "yes...

While there's nothing about this movie that I haven't seen in other romantic comedies about parenting, this is still a really enjoyable film with great characters, and realistic relationship issues. In my opinion, the two leads had great chemistry. The rest of the cast I found ve...

It is frustrating to see this intriguing idea and a smart first half lead to a predictable and moralist message about love and the "importance of family" when it comes to having kids - something so cliché that bogs down the whole potential of its premise.

Jennifer Westfeldt deals with the complexities of waylaid human emotions in situations that are less than ideal. In her acclaimed "Kissing Jessica Stein" she covers the unorthodox concept of a straight woman beginning a lesbian relationship after falling for another woman. Westfe...
