Family doesn't always go according to plan.


Friends with Kids

They decide to have a kid together, and still date other people. This unconventional experiment leads everyone in the group to question the nature of friendship, family and, finally, true love.

What the Critics say

Die Burger
Jeanne Calitz quote iconOuerskap is geen sorglose kinderspel.
10
Box Office
Pete Hammond quote iconWith a premise this funny and original and a cast this solid (including a few recent Bridesmaids vets), it should draw upscale adult audiences looking for a sophisticated romp to rescue them from the spring cinema doldrums.
15
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconAs a light entertainment, it has its pleasures, but at the end I was left with feeling sorry for the poor kid who emerges as such a great convenience.
13
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconWestfeldt is the pulse of Friends With Kids, presenting us with life in all of its vibrant, messy sprawl.
