Wow, this is so not what I thought this film was about, from its title. See, a few years back there was a pretty good flick called Friends with Money, which is about how tough it is to be the one woman in a circle of pals who can’t afford to keep up with the wealthier ones. Friends with Kids has no connection whatsoever to that movie, but in my head, I was imagining that it was about how hard it is to be that one couple without kids when all your married friends have kids.
But then, before I watched this trailer, I read this at the IMDB:
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.
And then, I saw the trailer, and I thought, Huh: This is like Knocked Up, only the pregnancy wasn’t an accident. And also that it might be grownup about the raunchy stuff, instead of adolescent about it. *fingers crossed*
I really, really hope the best friends don’t end up falling in love and realizing they’re perfect for each other at the end. That would ruin what looks to be the only potentially interesting aspect of this movie.
Except for Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm. And Maya Rudolph and Chris O’Dowd. They’re always fun to watch. I hope this flick is worthy of them.
