Friends with Kids is one of the more buzzed about low-profile films of the past year. Originally premiering at TIFF this past September, the film is directed by, written by, and starring Jennifer Westfeldt, which also stars boyfriend Jon Hamm, with co-lead Adam Scott, and reunites a good handful of the Bridesmaids cast as well (Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Chris O’Dowd). With a very interesting premise, the unique rom-com was picked up by Lionsgate at the festival, and now the studio is ready to distribute, as they’ve premiered the very first trailer for the film, which you can see below.

Jennifer Westfeldt wrote, directed, and stars in the romantic comedy Friends With Kids. She plays Julie, a Manhattanite whose biological clock is about to run out, so she convinces her longtime platonic best friend, Jason (Adam Scott) to father a child with her. They seem to have a much easier time juggling the responsibilities of new parenthood without the complication of being in a relationship with each other, which is in contrast to the two couples they are closest to. As their friends’ marriages implode, Julie and Jason’s happy equilibrium topples over as well when he falls for a hot young artist (Megan Fox) and she begins dating a successful businessman (Edward Burns).
Friends with Kids hits theaters March 9th.
