Friends with Kids

4.0 Anthony Macali

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.

"Friends with Kids" is about breaking conventions, offering an atypical (and refreshing) perspective on marriage and children. It thrives on the chemistry of its two leads, dishing out their rather brash commentary on the failed relationships of their friends, and sharing some of the opinions we always think but never say. The experiment unfolds and it's funny, only to succumb to the formulaic predictability so promisingly absent from the first half. Film with laughs.
