Storyline

Julie and Jason have been best friends for years with no romantic interest in each other. He sleeps with someone new every few days, and she's looking for Mr. Right. Now in their thirties, they notice that their friends seem to lose all their good qualities when they have children - child rearing and the spark of Eros don't seem to co-exist. So, they decide to have a child together, share in child rearing, but pursue their own romantic lives. Things go well until he meets Mary Jane and she meets Kurt. Both seem like perfect mates. What could go wrong? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Thought it was going to be charming, but then....
10 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

I was really excited to see this film, especially based on the cast. The premise of the film is interesting, and started to hold my interest and then.... the filthy language starts, the disgusting sexual terminology that producers and directors feel the overwhelming need to include in every 'relationship movie'. I was turned off, and actually turned off the DVD. I tried it again the next day, and the movie only went from bad to worse. It was too bad because all actors are great, and I was looking forward to John Hamm and Kristin Wiig, but not even these entertaining and funny actors could save this! A tiresome film that no one will remember the name of in 6 months from now-
