This ensemble dramedy, written, produced, and directed by Jennifer Westfeldt, has an all-star cast that includes Westfeldt herself and her longtime partner Jon Hamm of Mad Men fame, along with Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott, Maya Rudolph, Chris O'Dowd, Edward Burns, and Megan Fox. The film centers on two couples and their close, uncoupled friends Julie (Westfeldt) and Jason (Scott). Despite having no romantic interest in one another, Julie and Jason decide to have a child together when they see the marriages of their friends go awry after having kids. However, their platonic partnership gets complicated once they both meet and become romantically interested in other people. The 2011 film received mixed to positive reviews from critics, with much praise given to the strength of the ensemble cast. Notably, Wigg, Rudolph, O'Dowd and Hamm had recently starred together in the smash hit comedy Bridesmaids, which came out just before Friends With Kids was released.
