The above photo is your first look at the indie flick Friends with Kids, which is a lot like Friends with Benefits, only instead of benefits, the kids give you a lifetime of batshitter-y. It’s about a loving, doting father who wakes up one day to realize that he’s yelling at his kid, and the YELLING WON’T STOP and what happened, when did he become a guy that yells at his kid? And WHY WON’T THE GODDAMN KID PUT ON HIS LISTENING EARS ON FOR ONCE. CHRIST, JUST PUT AWAY YOUR F*CKING LACING BOARDS, HOW HARD IS THAT?
My bad. That’s not Friend with Kids. That was my morning.
Anyway, Friends with Kids comes from Jennifer Westfeldt, who some of you know as the writer of the phenomenal Kissing Jessica Stein and others know as the long-time (10 years?) girlfriend of Jon Hamm, and WHAT WOULD SHE KNOW ABOUT HAVING KIDS? SHE SLEEPS WITH JON HAMM AND APPEARS IN GAP ADS LOOKING ALL ADORABLE BECAUSE SHE DOESN’T HAVE A KID THAT WAKES UP THREE TIMES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT BECAUSE HE WANTS SOME F*CKING WATER AND EVEN THOUGH HIS DAD DRAGS HIS ASS OUT OF BED AND REFILLS HIS SIPPY CUP THAT KID STILL WON’T PUT AWAY HIS GODDAMN LACING BOARDS.
Where was I? Yes, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott and Westfeldt star in the film about a group of adult friends in their 30s whose dynamic changes after two of them have a child. Megan Fox plays Adam Scott’s girlfriend, but not the mother of the child. That’s Westfeldt. Got it? Oh, who cares.
The movie will debut at the Toronto Film Festival next week, which I will not be attending this year BECAUSE I HAVE A KID WHO WON’T PUT AWAY HIS LACING BOARDS.
