On March 9th, Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions will release Friends with Kids in theaters.  The Bridesmaids cast will be reunited in an ensemble comedy about a close-knit group of three New York couples and their two single friends entering that stage in life where children begin to take center stage.  Jennifer Westfeld makes her first directorial debut in this romantic comedy, sure to bring big laughs and plenty of emotional truths.


Friends With Kids is a daring and poignant ensemble comedy about a close-knit circle of friends at that moment in life when children arrive and everything changes.  The last two singles in the group observe the effect that kids have had on their friends’ relationships and wonder if there’s a better way.  They decide to have a kid together – and date other people.

Jennifer Westfeldt wrote, directed, and stars in the romantic comedy Friends with Kids. She plays Julie, a Manhattanite whose biological clock is about to run out, so she convinces her longtime platonic best friend, Jason (Adam Scott) to father a child with her. They seem to have a much easier time juggling the responsibilities of new parenthood without the complication of being in a relationship with each other, which is in contrast to the two couples they are closest to. As their friends’ marriages implode, Julie and Jason’s happy equilibrium topples over as well when he falls for a hot young artist (Megan Fox) and she begins dating a successful businessman (Edward Burns).

There are big laughs and unexpected emotional truths as this unconventional ‘experiment’ leads everyone in the group to question the nature of friendship, family and, finally, true love.

Friends With Kids stars Adam Scott (“Parks and Recreation”), Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Chris O’Dowd, Megan Fox and Edward Burns.  

Written and directed by Jennifer Westfeldt (Kissing Jessica Stein).

    I’m very excited about watching this movie. It has a great cast and looks hilarious. I’m dragging my man there for sure!

  2. I’m actually really surprised I haven’t seen more advertising for this movie since it seems like a good quality movie with a lot of big names in it!

    It looks really good, though, so I’m quite excited 🙂
