A breezy, fun watch that's quick to put a smile on your face, almost at the expense of dramatic heft or realism.
Lucy Punch and Faye Marsay play a gay couple and David Tennant their unreconstructed neighbour in this sometimes cute, sometimes crass comic trifle about pregnancy.
Though there is a half-decent idea in here, that's largely because the premise seems have been reverse-engineered from Lisa Cholodenko's excellent The Kids Are All Right.
Had it stuck to this course, it would have been a cheery enough misfire; alas, it does not. One for Tennant superfans only.
The female performances are lovely but every time the film gains a little comic momentum, it's frittered away courtesy of some ill-advised and occasionally toe-curling slapstick.
It might not be the most polished production, but it delivers both big laughs and impactful emotion.
Only a bold third act diversion into darkness saves this from being the stinker of the season.
A likeable if lightweight romp with a talented cast and some crowd-pleasing comic highlights.
What a treat to see Punch, so often the scene-stealer in a string of supporting roles, get to be the star for a change, in a part that emphasises her gawky, goofy persona.
A film which is hard to dislike, but equally a struggle to care about ...
At one point the film lurches unexpectedly into territory that some viewers may find traumatic, so it shouldn't be approached as pure escapism, but otherwise it's fluffy and lighthearted pretty much continually.
