Red Band Trailer for 'Friends with Kids' is Funny But Not Raunchy

Friends with Kids

Last month we got the first trailer for Jennifer Westfeldt's mature romantic comedy Friends with Kids which she wrote, directed and produced, not to mention having one of the lead roles alongside Adam Scott. Audiences will be happy to see most of the supporting cast of Bridesmaids, including Kirsten Wiig, Jon Hamm, Maya Rudolph and Chris O'Dowd, show up for this comedy, and now we have a red band trailer that gives us just a taste of the adult laughs in store. Honestly, this doesn't really need to be a red band trailer, but it is because of all the sex talk. Otherwise, it's quite tame for an R-rated trailer. Watch!

Here's the red band trailer for Jennifer Westfeldt's Friends with Kids originally from Hulu:

Friends with Kids is directed, written and produced by Jennifer Westfeldt who also stars opposite Adam Scott in the story about two friends who decide they want the joy of having a child but without the red tape of getting married and being in love with one another. Skeptical friends come in the form of Kristen Wiig, Jon Hamm, Maya Rudolph and Chris O'Dowd (all from the comedy Bridesmaids) while things get complicated as each of the new parents pursue their own romantic exploits played by Edward Burns and Megan Fox. Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate bring the film to theaters on March 9th, 2012. Good?

    Let me guess.. They end up falling in love
    • I heard he uses the baby as a tiny human football and ends up drowning the girl because he gets post natal depression. Just to shake things up a bit.

    The desire to RAISE a child and the selfishness of not wanting to raise it correctly are together an oxymoron. This plot is really scraping the bottom.

      if this is "scraping the bottom".........where does the plot for "human centipede" fall?

          Ass-to-mouth makes more sense than this movie.

    The concept behind this movie is horrible. It is so bad that I have never even thought of the idea in any remote part of my brain, nor has the topic been brought up in any conversation I have ever been in. To add to the crap concept of this story, the movie plays on the notion that, hey, this is a new idea, but not really, and we all know you think it won't work, but lets have fun along the way. In the end, you get a movie that is just crap and designed around a few punch lines and skits. Having said all that, writing this reply, the next trailer, Damsels in Distress, just played automatically. Thanks, Hulu, and it looks solid. Take the time and find the trailer for that.

      do you REALLY think "damsels in distress" looks  like a solid film? i think it looks ridiculous. the plot, actresses, dialogue seem awful to me. i wouldn't see it if i had free tickets. as fars as this movie - i think the 4 actors are what makes it - they seem like a good ensemble and i think it'll be ok for a one-time watch.
      • ccoltmanm
        The lead female actresses only fit a niche type movie. Something like Damsels... so, yeah, i do.

    Well the trailer for Playback that played after the one for Friends with Kids was definitely red band worthy at least.
  • Can someone tell me what Chris O'Dowd did that he is in every Hollywood comedy nowadays? It just feels like he was on IT Crowd 5 minutes ago. Is his agent a magician? I mean, I love the guy but wtf. good for him
  • Seriously?
    Wow. That's quite possibly the worst thing I've ever seen. The very concept is, well, I don't even have a word for how bad it is. It's completely offensive to anyone with kids, or a partner, or any sense of responsibility. The idea that you could raise a child in such a morally devoid environment smacks of narcissism and brain damage. Thanks for posting this, now I know what to actively avoid.

    Before having seen any trailer, I had wanted to see this simply because I love O'Dowd, Scott, and Hamm. I don't even wanna go near a theater that's screening this now. Looks absolutely horrid.
