Big Hollywood

Surprisingly funny and wickedly smart, this romantic dramedy soars.

Al Alexander
The Patriot Ledger

As she did with her first script, the gender-bending 'Kissing Jessica Stein,' Westfeldt goes for something radical and winds up pulling her punches when things start getting interesting.

Trying to figure what is the most offensive thing about this accidental mashup of 70s Woody Allen and Sex and the City...

Movies of this genre normally want you to root for the couple to end up together. All this one had me doing was hoping that someone would smack them upside the head and talk some sense into them.

We Got This Covered

Ultimately, Friends With Kids is an unconventional family drama that uses conventional romantic comedy clichés to make its point.

I'd rather have my head stuck in a vise than be forced to sit through another viewing.

Observer [UK]

Friends with Kids is funny and likable and while the dialogue is often bawdy and sexually frank, its elements are completely fairytale, including a climax involving a cross-town dash.

Adam Scott takes the leading male role as Jason Fryman. Were such a thing possible, he looks like he could be the son of Tom Cruise and Michael Sheen, minus their celebrity baggage.

This is London

Westfeldt's screenplay is often sharp, shrewd and funny...

Sure this is going to draw some comparisons to Bridesmaids - and understandably so - but still there are some great performances and touching moments.

Liverpool Echo

Friends With Kids is a smart, witty and potty-mouthed confection that uses an intriguing premise as a hook for a familiar tale of soulmates who are blinkered to the deep love that binds them.

Movie Talk

If the leads ultimately conform to rom-com type, there's enough messiness, heartbreak and hurt around them to stop the movie becoming cosily bland.

It's conventional, dull and unconsciously nasty.

If you see this on at the cinema, walk on by.

It's left to the wonderful Scott, with his satyr's face and killer timing, to carry the movie through thick and thin.

Financial Times

Sadly the film then downhill-races to a feelgood, feel-inauthentic ending. But for 90 of 107 minutes it is cracklingly good.

Little White Lies

It's difficult to muster the will to get behind these fools, and yet there are stretches where Westfeldt's script glows, such as an expertly executed dinner-table fracas, which manages to engage the entire ensemble.

Henry Fitzherbert
Daily Express

It's hardly a relatable scenario but there's something compelling about it all the same as these two not wholly sympathetic characters try and have their cake and eat it.

Sky Movies

While this results in some genuine moments of truth, most scenes feel forced to fit the standard rom-com template.
