Two best friends decide to have a child together while keeping their relationship platonic, so they can avoid the toll kids can take on romantic relationships. (IMDb)
I wanted to love this. With it’s funny cast (like literally half the cast of bridesmaids) and clever premise I was really looking forward to it. But unfortunately, I only really liked some parts of it. The script was witty, I especially enjoyed the banter between Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt (who also wrote and directed). Something else I did like was seeing Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig play women who weren’t zany characters. (As much as I love those roles) It was a nice switch and they did a really good job. I did not like the husbands (Jon Hamm and Chris O’Dowd) at all. I thought they were total douchebags. Actually, I had a hard time seeing how any of them were actually close friends. The only two that seemed that way were the two main characters. Random side note, I actually didn’t hate Megan Fox, so that was nice. Then, the first half felt rushed and then the second half dragged. In the end, I felt like this script wasn’t finished. There were pieces there, but none of them really fit together.
