Friends with Kids Movie Review: Jennifer Westfeldt's Triumph

by at . Comments

Sure, Friends with Kids sports four alumni from Bridesmaids, but don’t look at it as being in the same vein. It is funny, just not the side-splitting, fall-off-your-chair hilarity that Kristen Wiig produced in 2011’s best comedy. The Jennifer Westfeldt-written, directed and starring movie is more of a serious take on the human experience that many share in today’s world and she has handled it with deft hands.
