We love the fantasy worlds we get to visit in the movies. Who can't help but get lost in the sweeping majesty of Middle-earth, the magical halls of Hogwarts and the alternate-universe Central Park where a guy can pick up a conveniently single Megan Fox.
"Friends With Kids" follows two BFFs (Adam Scott and writer-director Jennifer Westfeldt) who decide to have a baby together while keeping their relationship strictly platonic so they can date other people. This decision seems to be inspired by the fact that their newlywed pals (Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm) had sex in the bathroom of a restaurant before joining them at the table.
Or something. Motivation and plot isn't very clear in the "Friends With Kids" trailer, but at least we get to watch a lot of attractive young-ish actors try to make sense of it all -- or at least just go with the flow (really, do a shot every time Jon Hamm does his bug-eyed bemused/exasperated look and you'll be passed out by the end of the trailer). Admittedly, it's fun to watch Wiig and Hamm getting along a little better than they did in "Bridesmaids" -- meanwhile, their "Bridesmaids" pal Maya Rudolph seems like she's pretty much playing the same character she played in "Bridesmaids."
And yes, we have to admit, Edward Burns is a handsome German man. From Long Island.
Wonder how many more "edgy" romantic comedies we're going to be subjected to with the "Friends With Kids" trailer below, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies. The film opens March 9, 2012.
