Friends With Kids

- Two friends decide to have a child together while keeping their relationship platonic.

There are great movies that come out and you say to yourself "I just have to watch that movie!" and sometimes you stumble across a really good movie just because nothing else is on TV and you are bored out of your mind.  Well, that is what happened to me this evening.  Saturday night and nothing on the TV - so I came across this movie and I am so glad that I did!

What a sweet, funny, engaging story of friendship and parenting and life.  You instantly become invested in the characters of this story and begin routing for them. The funny part is that when you think you are routing for one set of circumstances, you find that you have changed directions without even realizing it and you are now routing for something completely different.

But isn't that what life is about?  Twists and turns and what you thought you wanted really isn't what you wanted at all.  And what you thought you didn't want - is exactly what your soul craves.

I loved this movie and will definitely see it again.  So, I am giving this one 3 full boxes of popcorn with extra butter and a side order of jelly beans!
