Friends With Kids

What I liked:

  • Fabulous cast: Jennifer Westfeldt, Adam Scott, Maya Rudolph, Chris O'Dowd, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Edward Burns, and Megan Fox.
  • Kelly Bishop!
  • Westfeldt not only starred in it but also wrote and directed it.
  • The writing was fantastic.  The characters felt real.  They talked, thought, and acted like people that I know.
  • The story was very current and fresh.  A modern day, funny, RomCom.
  • Great soundtrack.

What I didn't like:

  • Jon Hamm seemed a little off, like he wasn't comfortable in his character's skin.
  • Not enough of Emily Kelly Bishop.
  • The editing bothered me.  There were many scenes where they cut to get a character's reation and you can tell that the other actor, whose back is to the camera, isn't actually talking even though you can hear them.

Grade: A-
