The trailer for dramatic comedy Friends with Kids
has just arrived online and while it may look a little familiar, there’s plenty of mileage in the top drawer cast.
The film tells the story of a bunch of 30 something’s increasingly torn apart by the invasion of children into the picture. The two remaining singletons, played by Adam Scott
and writer/director Jennifer Westfeldt
resolve to get physical, pop out a kid of their own and share custody while they continue to date other people. Problems, and emotions, ensue.
First things first, yes it looks like a Bridesmaids
reunion (with Chris O’Dowd
, Kristin Wiig
, Jon Hamm
and Maya Rudolph
) and yes you’ve seen this before but a decent comedic cast and an indie bent might be enough to make things a little fresh. Our only other major issue at the moment? O’Dowd’s dodgy American accent. Stick with the lilt, Chris – people will think you’re charming.
Friends with Kids
also stars Megan Fox
(as Scott’s unlikely girlfriend) and Edward Burns
and made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival
in September 2011. It has yet to confirm a local release, though expect it in 2012.
