Friends with Kids is a daring and poignant ensemble comedy about a close-knit circle of friends at that moment in life when children arrive and everything changes. The last two singles in the group observe the effect that kids have had on their friends’ relationships and wonder if there’s a better way. They decide to have a kid together – and date other people. There are big laughs and unexpected emotional truths as this unconventional ‘experiment’ leads everyone in the group to question the nature of friendship, family and, finally, true love. — (C) Official Site

@shadowsmessage I love vaginas but I hated that.

Bridget Whelan says:

@typecastyourself It’s because she’s “Hollywood thin.” Basically, she’s anorexic. Extreme unnatural thinness really ages people.

It’s too bad they don’t review TV movies. I would love to hear them skewer Big Time Movie.

Christy Lemire has made many a projectile poop.

omarsalkamusic says:

Christy = gorgeous!!

Bram Brouwers says:

I so much like Christy’s ‘bye’ at the end every time 😀

Toojdwin says:

@shadowsmessage C’mon man, her name’s “Christy Lemire”. It’s in the description.

xtralimit says:

i hate these faggot ass movies.

they should make more movies like die hard or first blood.

Kayser Söze says:

“i have a vagina and i can…” instant boner…

Shannon Levy says:

I didn’t like this. Jennifer Westfeldt has had WAY too much work done. Do these women think they look good that way? I’d rather have wrinkles thanks. But for the film itself, she was awful. They are right. She has no likability. And that whole storyline is a bad idea. Ugh! 

Jay Quintana says:

Damn… Alonso went to town on this movie!

Sara Ramirez says:

@typecastyourself It’s all that boootoooxx

Afro .Playlist says:

wow i actually was kinda interested into the plot of this movie

Kayser Söze says:

@shadowsmessage love the word play

_em says:

i thought it was pretty good. when i saw the trailer im like wow this movie looks bad, then it showed on tv so im like why not give it a try. there were moments where i thought it was funny and i couldnt stop watching it til the end. the only thing i would say is that some parts are really random so the director might not be good but the actors are.

Suiram82 says:

Terrible movie. I feel cheated on the time I wasted watching this shit. There are some great actors in it, but the story is so dull and the script is horrible. I hate to say it, but it’s so bleeding obvious that it was written by a woman.

EmbraceTheSadnesss says:

Chick flick

rbrtchng says:

Mad Men!

tiffany gonzales says:

Nah, not at all.

carefulandpolite says:

I’m so glad you mentioned how awful Jennifer Westfeldt was. The last scene where she was all like “How am I supposed to trust you?” and stuff was too painful to watch.

LolaCraven says:

Awful movie. Just awful.

leonthesleepy says:

Ben is not AMUSED

Boobalopbop says:

@typecastyourself Yeah, she looks like she’s had a LOT of work done. Puffy, shiny stiff face… These white ladies need to chill with that botox.

Matt Cipolla says:

This movie was horrible. I have no idea how it got a 64% on Rotten Tomatoes.

tiffany gonzales says:

It’s funny at a Harry Met Sally Pace. I loved this movie and thought it had great writing, And thought it was nice to see Maya and Kristen do more realistic acting. Honestly, thought it was one of the best and wittiest rom-coms I have seen in a while.

MrErickcruz1 says:

first time being here guys and u guys are doing great work, i did watch the movie and it was a movie that im happy i saw bacause i was at work. not a movie that i would go out of my way to watch again. one request is that when u guys are talking about the actors i would like to see their face or like a part in the movie of the actor u guys are talking about. other than that, great work.
