More than the trite set-up, Friends with Kids' biggest travesty is a criminal waste of professional funny people like Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph.

Sharp enough to appreciate, with Westfeldt and Adam Scott anchoring a really good cast.

Friends with Kids is simply not very funny. The few laughs there are come from the bickering O'Dowd and Rudolph, but even their shtick is clichéd and obvious.

With Friends with Kids, [Director Jennifer] Westfeldt has given us -- for the first time in a while -- a romantic comedy for adults.

All in all, this is a smart, charming and endearing film.

Blending Jennifer Westfeldt's talky, observational style with the kind of irreverent humour that helped Bridesmaids bridge the gender divide, Friends With Kids explores love, marriage and child-rearing with gusto and wit.

Surprisingly funny and wickedly smart, this romantic dramedy soars.

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.

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

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