Friends with Kids

Posted on the 06 April 2012 by Kaiser31083 @andythemovieguy
Friends with Kids Jason and Julie have been friends since their college days but have never felt an attraction towards each other. Seeing the rest of their married friend's relationships turn sour as soon as the stork arrives, they devise a radical plan: have a kid together and raise it in a happy, platonic relationship while they see other people. Needless to say, complications arise from this arrangement. Not one second of "Friends with Kids" resembles anything plausible, relatable, or even minutely enjoyable. Director/Writer/Star Jennifer Westfeldt's phony and misleading film comes billed seemingly as a "Bridesmaids" followup, but standouts Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm (both excellent here) are scarcely to be found, leaving us with off-putting and highly unpleasant Westfeldt and Adam Scott to serve as leads. "Friends with Kids" rides the coattails of major success and offers virtually nothing to its viewers, unless you happen to be a coarse and self-involved Manhattanite.
