“A very clever tale of modern ecoissues intertwined with old-style political intrigues and New Age romance.” (LA Times)

Friends with Kids

New Releases

"The film’s revelation is Adam Scott, a second-banana comic best known for obnoxious squirts. Easing back on caricature but taking nothing off his fastball, he recalls the young Alan Alda, coming on glib and finishing vulnerable—much like this marvelous film." (David Edelstein, New York Magazine)

A poignant comedy from writer/director Jennifer Westfeldt (Ira and Abby, Kissing Jessica Stein) about the last two singles in a group of married friends who believe that kids and marriage don't mix, but kids and friendship do. Jon Hamm (AMC's Mad Men), Adam Scott (NBC's Parks and Recreation),  Edward Burns (Newlyweds) and Bridesmaids’ stars, Chris O'Dowd, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig, round out the ensemble cast.
