DVD Review: Friends With Kids (out now) ✭✭✭


Lionsgate UK is delighted to announce the home entertainment release of FRIENDS WITH KIDS written, directed and starring Jennifer Westfeld (24, Grey’s Anatomy).

The all-star cast also includes; John Hamm (Mad Men), Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids), Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids), Megan Fox (Transformers), Adam Scott (Leap Year) and Edward Burns (Saving Private Ryan).

Jason (Scott) and Julie (Westfeldt), the last two singles in a close group of 30-somethings, observe the effect that kids have had on their friends’ relationships and wonder if there’s a better way. Eventually they decide to have a kid together – but date other people.

This is the perfect rom-com for a cosy night in, with sprinklings of laughter and ‘aww’ moments. The predictable plot is compensated by the cast who play off each other wonderfully and despite their characters’ differences, true love always wins.

Friends with Kids is released on November 12th in both the UK and Ireland on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital Download.
