I enjoyed this film a lot, it was a nice surprise. I thought this film was very sweet, I enjoyed both characters and thought it was nice that the film did not force them into a romance but rather had them remain friends- it was refreshing. Moreover, I thought this film was very progressive and I liked what it did with gender roles, having the man really want to have a child and the woman being less so and wanting different things; it was nice to see.
I thought this film felt like the quirky comedies of Woody Allen, which is funny as the film finds time to mock him, another brilliant moment. I thought the film wasn’t hilarious but was instead charming and very warm: it made me smile a lot.
I think this may be Ed Helms best role to date, and he totally changed the way I view him as a performer.
Overall, this may be a film that you might be sleeping on, don’t, this was one of the best surprises I have had all year check it out.
The gender roles
Keeping the leads friends
It wasn’t hilarious
