How easy is it to fall in love with Adam Scott? Too easy. His perfectly tousled man-coif. His boyish but faintly rat-looking nose-mouth combo. His extraordinary ability to tear up at the drop of a hat. His brand of deathly serious deadpan that is neither sarcastic nor snarky...

Man, I love movies like this. This one is not as polished as Kissing Jessica Stein, and suffers from the same weak ending, but I could still totally watch this again. Megan Fox makes for some serious eye candy and Adam Scott is surprisingly charming. My only gripe (SPOILER ALE...

Two close friends decide to have a child but maintain their search for "The One."
Jennifer Westfeldt is fast becoming one of my favorite new filmmakers. It is right that she works with Edward Burns in this film because their films have similar milieus, and her slice-of...

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 ...

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...

Funny, saucy romantic comedy with appealing, honest characters and a great script. It cannot help but have a conventional ending, but the journey there is worth watching this film.

Interesting storyline about a group of 30 somethings who all pair off, get married and have kids. The last two singletons see how the kids have changed their friends' lives for the worse, so they decide to have a kid together but have an open dating relationship. Some laughs and ...

A strong ensemble cast gives this Romantic Comedy - or whatever it is, it's marketed like a Rom-Com but then again, what isn't? - the stones required to take the risks it does, and overall it pays off. And though a lot of similar movies don't work for me - Beautiful Girls comes i...
