I have to admit, I got a little bored with this by the (over cute) end, but I didn't mind this and I think I will watch it again when I'm not as tired as I am at the moment, see if it makes a difference.
I liked the trio of Krysten Ritter, Kate Bosworth and Rachel Bilson. Yes, they're all a bit pretty, and Krysten in particular does not look the part of an exhausted single mum, but I liked that they weren't played as perfect, and, ending aside, being a single mum wasn't glorified as being a wonderful thing. Krysten's Kim really struggles here and it isn't all roses.
The worst one was the fake Australian ex. His accent was shocking and the phrases cringeable. He also wasn't believable as someone such a beautiful girl would go for.
Jason Biggs is barely in this, surprisingly.

2017 rewatch: have upgraded half a star. I enjoyed this movie second time around.

Incapable writing & directing.

Glad I didn't listen to the critics OR the audience score on this one. I thought it was a cute film and I liked it.

Average rom-com-dram. Nothing special, besides Ritter, of course.

Wasn't horrible. Wasn't great but it wasn't horrible. Wasn't particularly memorable either.

Not exactly a comedy as much as it is your everyday dramedy.

Fairly enjoyable but cliché as well.

I liked this movie. It wasn't the best movie ever, but it had a good story line that and I enjoyed the cast.

It dragged on and suffers from many flaws. However I can relate, which is enough for me to appreciate it.

funny baby mama comedy

Has some amusing moments, but not enough to make this watchable. Second time.

I want to say I didn't like it but I guess it was slightly better than that. I missed everything in the middle. Somehow only seeing the beginning and the end still all made sense and didn't feel like I misses anything. Very forgettable movie too. Oh well..

A film that has some moments, but struggles under a first time director and a number of poor casting choices.

Oh my goodness the low ratings! I honestly wasn't expecting to enjoy this movie as much as I did. It was adorable. Funny. Charming. Sweet. Witty dialog. The entire gambit required for a nice relaxing afternoon chick flick!

Cute movie. It's like a Sunday afternoon movie or a rainy day movie that makes you feel good. I found it to be very true and close to real life situations.

I know what's it's like to be a single Mum & not be bothered with the dating scene! Need I say more?

I liked this one. It wasn't like a phenomenal film with brilliant acting or anything, but it was cute and fun. I haven't seen Krysten Ritter in anything else, I will def keep an eye out for her films now. She was really like able and human in this. She felt like someone I would know. Rachel Bilson was fine, but her role was super silly and her acting was underplayed. Kate Bosworth had an interesting character. I had never seen her play someone with such an aggressive personality. I appreciated it. Basically, the girls were cute and the movie sweet. They made mistakes and got through them. A fun girl friendship film. I will say that a very inaccurate portrayal of single parenthood.
