2011 was a landmark year: Egyptian revolution, Bin Laden found, and women were allowed to be funny. Bridesmaids garnered rave reviews for its fresh and hilarious cast of women (plus a killer Jon Hamm cameo), but in doing so has started what will surely be a cascade of unfunny Bridesmaids knock-offs. Not a complete carbon copy as such, but featuring many of the same cast members, Friends With Kids – directed, written by, and starring Jennifer Westfeldt – doesn’t quite fit into the category of unfunny, instead shuffling past it.

Julie (Westfeldt) and Jason (Scott) are best friends; mid-thirties and single they grow tired of their respective frigid and gigolo lifestyles. Parental instincts take hold and they decide to have a baby together, »
