A comedy-drama about best friends - one a straight woman, Abbie, the other a gay man, Robert - who decide to have a child together. Five years later, Abbie falls in love with a straight man and wants to move away with her and Robert's little boy Sam, and a nasty custody battle ensues.Written by
This movie is bad, bad, bad. There is no chemistry between the two leads and the very talented Rupert seems out of place here, in the type of role he has handled with past aplomb. If you're a discerning movie viewer you probably won't make it to the end unless you're on the masochistic side or someone who revels in bad film making -- which this is. The cliches and bad acting abound almost from the first frame but don't quit watching until you see the funeral scene in the early part of the film. You have to see it to believe it. I think the intention was for there not to be a dry eye in the house when the mourners start singing (yes, folks -- a singing funeral, although it should be for Madonna's acting career). Instead everyone in the audience burst into laughter. Too bad -- Everett deserves better than this. So do ticket buyers.
