A charming comedy about a couple coming to terms with pregnancy. It's in the tradition of a screwball comedy that would have starred Katharine Hepburn and Car Grant. Rose Matafeo is excellent with a droll delivery and emotional depth as the wild tree-climbing mother-to-be worried that a child will stunt her adventurous lifestyle. Matthew Lewis shows great leading man quality as the more responsible and gauche father. There's sharp dialogue and many funny scenes in Sophie Henderson's screenplay including an attempt to slide under a toilet door and an awkward threesome. Some of the more slapstick comedy misses the mark because it belongs to a more over-the-top Judd Apatow script but on the whole this is a clever likeable movie.
