I was first interested in Friends with Kids because I heard it was written, directed, and starred in by Jon Hamm’s long time girlfriend, Jennifer Westfeldt.  I was hooked once I saw the trailer: the movie seemed like a hilarious adaptation of the (almost) over-done ‘falling in love with your best friend’ shtick.  Somehow, though, Friends with Kids made the familiar story line seem brand-new.
