Friends With Kids Reviews

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.

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.

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

I'm not sure what the point of Friends with Kids is.

Just as predictable and contrived as any Hollywood romantic comedy, only without the advantage of amusing comic relief to distract from the thuddingly obvious plotting.

There must be a better reason to have a baby than to provide a plot point in a rom-com. Don't you think?

Sitcom-amusing, in that middle-of-the-road way.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

There's a framework for a fun comedy here, but no one says anything witty and none of the characters emerge as anything resembling a real person with bigger problems than the kind of babies-are-a-handful stuff that Erma Bombeck once built a career out of.

A smooth but frustrating third feature with an extremely good ensemble cast.

It's shrill in tone, awash in unexamined narcissism-kids are just pretexts for laughs, rather than objects of love-and afflicted by explosive verbal diarrhea.

Three Movie Buffs

It's never a good sign when the supporting cast is the most interesting thing about your movie, but when your supporting cast is almost the entire cast of Bridesmaids (minus Melissa McCarthy), it's almost inevitable.

March 11, 2012

The 1st 2 acts are rife with such smart humor, it hurts when the last 3rd devolves. If only Westfeldt had managed to keep rom-com convention at bay, she could have birthed a much brighter baby.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

It has moments, but it's more of a drag than the zippy supporting cast would suggest.

Westfeldt's sloppy love letter to herself and corralled Hamm's friends to help sell it.

Eventually grows unreasonably contrived, leaving the intriguing discomfort of the titular combination behind to work stale romantic comedy moves that would cause even Kate Hudson to dry heave.

There's much to like here but it's a bumpy ride and for all its banter, it takes itself very seriously.

Westfeldt takes a topic full of complex emotional shadings and turns it into something that is, for the most part, reductive, cliched and even sitcommy.

Combustible Celluloid

Friends with Kids doesn't really understand kids very well. It also doesn't understand the friends. This entire world is about Julie and Jason. And even then, their neurosis and emotional entanglements seem a bit too... written.

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