When the scene showing Julie Keller's (Jennifer Westfeldt) birthday was shot, it was done so on Jennifer Westfeldt's actual birthday. See more »
In the final scene, when Jason leaves Julie's house, she is wearing a black v-neck sweater and her hair is nicely coiffed. After she asked him to leave, when he decided to go back and try again, she is wearing a completely different outfit and her hair is longer and messy. See more »
An awful comedy starring two of the more inept actors working today in Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt. The two play best friends who decide to have a child together and escape the problems of an actual living, breathing marriage. If that sounds selfish, narcissistic, and dumb and a recipe for psychological child abuse, you're not wrong. The film pretends to be about modern relationships, but its not. It's about sex. The three couples in this movie have literally nothing else on their minds. All conversations result in a joke about sex. Maya Rudolph has some funny moments, the wonderful Kristin Wiig is not really present in this movie, and Jon Hamm and Chris O'Dowd are, well, pleasant. The Adam Scott character is misogynist, self-absorbed and down right creepy. The Westfeldt character is whiny, unattractive and brainless. There is no wit to the inane script full of vagina jokes, masturbation jokes, poopie jokes, and penis jokes. Not one of them funny. And toward the end, it even wants you to take the whole thing seriously. What can you say about a movie where Edward Burns plays THE PERFECT MAN.
