Smug MarriedsBy filmgal108 (3 reviews) , 14 Nov 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Absolute tripe. Smug marrieds with kids. Nothing makes a case more for NOT getting married or having kids. Probably the worst film I have seen since 'What to expect when your expecting' but at least that bloke from True Blood took his shirt of!

Irritating, didn't finish itBy SusieP (130 reviews) from Leeds , 23 Aug 2013I'm afraid I gave up on his quite early as I just found the actors in it quite annoying. I realise that many of them are seen as the cream of the crop in US comedy films at the moment, but I just found them irritating and because of that I did not finish watching this film.
"Friends, with kids". Not "friends with kids".By a customer , 14 Aug 2013Nice performances and entertaining. If you like rom-coms, it's one for the list. I think some of the other reviewers may have missed the point. It's more about two unmarried friends who start to dislike what their married friends with kids have turned into and decide to have one of their own, expecting it all to be simple. (What could possibly go wrong..?) That's when the fun (or not) starts. Hence THEY are the friends, with kids, rather than the film being about THEIR FRIENDS with kids. OK, I'll stop now.

One to watch if its raining on a Sat afternoonBy a customer , 11 Aug 2013Chick flick, That's the best thing I can say about it. Wife liked it, but it had babies in !
Persevere...and there's a good film hereBy a customer , 06 Aug 2013For its target audience - parents - this is a film which really grows on you. But it starts off with quite mumbled dialogue and is a little bit incomprehensible initially - and you don't really start to care about the characters until a little way in. But...Jennifer Westfeldt has written a really insightful and carefully observed film, and I definitely think she is someone to watch out for in the future. She is snapping at the heels of screenwriters such as Nora Ephron (When Harry met Sally, etc.). I think she could have added a little more humour, but I was really pleasantly surprised and felt there was a steady increase in likeability, which kept me going to the end. This film isn't for anyone with a short attention span, but it is a film I'd recommend to anyone who enjoys character drama. And it did a very good job of taking the 'Bridesmaids' actors/actresses and reinventing them with completely different characters.
Why on earth...By Maunsell (6 reviews) , 05 Aug 2013would I have wanted to pay current cinema prices to see this? Not entirely sure what the point of this film was. The only couple I could even vaguely relate to was Chris O'Dowd's character and his wife. The others needed a slap. Not hugely amusing or realistic (I hope) although I did hide in the bathroom with the paper in the early stages of small child in the house until words were had.
