Jennifer Westfeldt decides she doesn't need to be in love to have a baby

This NY romcom could be described  as When Harry Met Sally remade with the cast of Bridesmaids (Kristen Wiig, Chris O’Dowd, Jon Hamm, Maya Rudolph) and fashionable attitudes towards conceiving children with platonic life-pals.

Except that’d be skimming over the deftness with which writer/director Jennifer Westfeldt paints our three Manhattan couples’ 30-something travails.

Westfeldt stars as one half of the believable, likeable, blub-overable central pair with a parental plan.

It’s overlong and strays into cliché, but a fine supporting cast and whopping, weepy pay-off compensate.
