Release Date: March 9, 2012 Limited
Directed by: Jennifer Westfeldt
Starring: Jon Hamm
This extremely provocative movie will be releasing in a few days on March 9. “Friends with Kids” has been rated R for some sexual content and bad language. It 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. 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.
The project revolves around a pair of thirty something best friends who observe the toll that having kids has taken on the couples they know and resolve to bypass that stress by having a child and then date other people. Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt will play the lead couple; Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm will play another. Megan Fox will play a girl who Scott begins to date.
