Friends with Kids
Wiig and Hamm in 'Friends with Kids'

Jennifer Westfeldt's "Friends with Kids" has a familiar-faced trailer hitting the web. It stars Westfeldt, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Adam Scott, Chris O'Dowd, Edward Burns and Megan Fox. TOH! caught the film at Toronto; Westfeldt ("Kissing Jessica Stein, Ira & Abby") is a better filmmaker than she is a movie star; the sharply observed comedy about a group of friends, two married couples with kids and two single best friends who decide to have a baby together without romantic entanglement, would have been better served with Westfeldt in a supporting role, with the underutilized Kristen Wiig in the lead. Check out early reviews and our interview with Westfeldt and real-life partner Hamm here; trailer is below:
