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.

I thought this might be a fun movie about the changes people go through when they become parents. It was funny from time to time, and did show how parenting wears on people, but the part that sticks with me is what a bunch of self absorbed jerks the characters are. That and what must be one of _the_ stupidest romantic exchanges in cinematic history: "I'm gonna f___ the sh__ out of you"... "OK f___ the sh__ out of me". This is what you say to someone you just realized is your soul mate? This might be where I got too old and out of touch to understand popular culture.

I have never watched a movie where I was so distracted by an actor's plastic surgery. Jennifer Westfeldt's face held me in morbid fascination - her mouth moves, but the rest of her face remains inert. She tries to speak, but her upper lip curls downward and she appears to be smirking. She is unable to even speak properly as her face has been stretched by so many fillers and Botox that it no longer functions normally. Her face has become a grotesque mask that should serve to horrify anyone considering any of these unnecessary procedures. My husband said she looks like a Muppet.

For an actor, this needs to be viewed in the same light as an athlete who decides not to train, or gains a hundred pounds. An actor's job is to emote, to perform, to inhabit a character...If you cannot express yourself because your whole face is frozen and distorted, you should no longer be eligible to be in this profession. It is an insult to the audience. It was shocking, actually - all of us kept commenting on this actress's face, not on her acting ability, the (vapid) dialogue being delivered, or the (ridiculous) storyline.

There is a scene in a restaurant where a family is having a meal. The mother turns to the camera and her face is completely unnatural: bloated lips, injected cheekbones, and when she spoke her one line of dialogue, again it was like watching a plastic mannequin. Is this the future? No wonder Meryl Streep and Helen Mirren are still winning awards - that is the ultimate irony: Age normally, and you get to keep your job.

You may think these observations are irrelevent, but they are not. If this were a superbly written film, perhaps I could have maintained my focus elsewhere. As it was not - infact, it is insufferably bad - most of my attention latched onto all of the terrible plastic surgery that is going on in Hollywood. How sad that women are willing to render themselves unrecognizable.

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.
