Enjoyable, well written relationship comedy making some astute observations and providing terrific performances from a superb cast, though the initially promisingly offbeat script ultimately lacks the courage to kick against convention.
Starring much of the Bridesmaids troupe, this film shares with that movie a coarse sense of humour skilfully blended with the underlying theme that stability trumps flakiness and that...family values really do rule.
With a hilariously smart script and a terrific cast, this romantic comedy rises far above the pack, engaging us emotionally and intellectually while offering some telling observations on the state of modern relationships.
Friends with Kids is as satisfying as rom-coms get. It's sharply scripted, populated with authentic and likeable characters and takes instinctive turns toward and away from cliché that keep you on your toes.
...a talky and sometimes witty romantic comedy that, at least for a while, serves as a bracing antidote to all those irritating, stroller-pushing Sacred Baby couples who seem to be everywhere, even in upscale restaurants, these days.
