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.

It's safe to assume its sharp comments on what kids can do to marriage - and friendships - come from years of observation.

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

Pleasant but overfamiliar.

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

It's the kind of cutesy idea that doesn't ring remotely true.

Credit Westfeldt, who is also the writer and director, with a classic setup for farce, brightly executed.
