I never write reviews. But I felt the need to defend this one because it's REALLY REALLY GOOD. Jennifer Westfeldt is wonderful. Adam Scott too. The supporting cast manages to pull off rich, 3-dimensional characters with little screen time because all characters are well-drawn and well-cast.

Think "When Harry Met Sally." There is no fake orgasm scene, but you do drop in and out of these people's lives as they inch closer toward each other and further away. Toward the end, I half expected Billy Crystal to show up and say "I came here tonight because when you realize that you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."

It might not be what people are used to in terms of a "romantic comedy" (or what passes for one today). Instead, it's engaging and true-to-life. I smiled more than I laughed, but I smiled a lot.

I really tried to like this movie. It seemed to have the potential to win me over and I thought that in the last 5 minutes it was going to successfully warm my heart. As it turned out, the last 1 minute put such a rotten taste in my mouth that I wish that I could have those entire 108 minutes of my life back.

First off, I must disclaim that I am not a prude. I am a progressive man who understands that we live in modern times and I find validity in all sorts of relationship variants, family structure types, and believe that they all carry currency and have the potential to provide a meaningful, satisfactory life. With all that said, I must admit: this movie really disappointed me.

The entire premise of the film is superficial and the male main character, Jason (Adam Scott), is particularly irritatingly hollow. His world is viewed only through the lens of his sexual conquests. I found it totally uninteresting and certainly not worth the time spent on screen exploring this one-dimensional worldview. Next, the movie does everything in its power to create an awkward tension between Jason and Julie throughout the ENTIRE film, and then we are left to imagine it all working out in the last few moments that this tension magically resolves and they live happily ever after? Great care was taken to paint a realistic picture of parenthood (albeit, quite stereotypical, to be fair), a realistic view of the complexity of long term friendships between couples, and then, in the final moments of the film, we're delivered a COMPLETELY fake and forced resolution.

Within two minutes of this crass, vulgar so-called comedy, one of the supposedly charming male leads tells a female friend over the phone that she needs to get the cobwebs out of her vagina. Less than 10 minutes in, he's telling her men worry about their partners having a baby because they fret the mother's vaginas will become cavernous and therefore she won't be attractive. And click went the off button. I've seen my wife struggle at times to deal with almost casual sexism that can damage a career, I watch with alarm as my teenage daughter navigates a modern culture where some players seem to delight in putting down women, and Friends with Kids is just continuing that trend. Shame on everyone involved in this pile of ordure.

I cannot believe how awful this film was. Jennifer Westfeldt's real-life partner, Jon Hamm, must have called in a ton of favors both with his former co-stars Wiig, Rudolph and O'Dowd and the studio to see this project come to fruition.
Where to begin? Westfeldt is a terrible actress, as evidenced by her "work" in the mediocre "Kissing Jessica Stein." Why, oh why, does she insist on handing lead roles to herself? Oh, I know - probably because she would never, EVER get cast otherwise. In addition to her terrible acting, Westfeldt has clearly had some pretty awful plastic surgery on her face; something that has resulted in her absolute inability to show emotion at all (as well as resulted in recurring nightmares for me.)
Poor Adam Scott, who I usually like, has zero chemistry with Westfeldt (see: comments on plastic surgery above for partial explanation) and seems to be pretty lost throughout the entire film.
The rest of the co-stars also seem lost, bored and/or embarrassed; Wiig is tragically underused, especially. I guess I would attribute all of this to Westfeldt's poor directing.
The story and writing are mediocre, and the ending is both predictable and forced.
All in all, if I could give this film zero stars, I would. It's just a bad film, through and through. I hope Jennifer Westfeldt can now admit to herself that maybe it's time to try her hand at something else...ANYTHING ELSE...PLEASE!! It's pathetic to use your partner's success in order to try to become successful yourself in a field in which you have no talent.

Another classic Rom-Com failure. The movie had a decent story line and a few good lines...almost enjoyable throughout most of the movie. And then they had to end it...I've never seen a worse ending in my life. Crude, lame and just terrible!
