Bryan Lienesch72 - It's not a comedy, or even a dark comedy. It's, to quote Paul Rudd in Knocked Up, "An unfunny version of Everybody Loves Raymond".

Dan O'Neill55 - Friends with Kids has some good insight, some funny moments, and a good ensemble that works well with this material, but it ends up falling into conventions that not only take away from the first hour but also make Westfeldt’s sloppiness as a director show up a lot more.
