but this ended up being the perfect movie for my night
Verified purchase
I was unimpressed by the reviews... but this ended up being the perfect movie for my night. Sure, it's not factually that accurate with regard to pregnancy. But it is soft, with humor and brings up very real issues. I thought most of the acting was quite good - only a couple of times did I find it sub-par. I enjoyed the cast and the nuances in the script. The cinematography was good too i thought. Enjoyable. I am a single mom myself with two kids - and this movie raises many important and relevant questions. Thanks!

Infertility and it's strain on relationships...
Verified purchase
If you have problems with fertility or know someone who does, you'll probably find this to be a 4 star movie. This movie in my honest opinion is a 3.25-3.5 star. I found myself curious, laughing and emotionally invested. To the point; it is something worth watching when you are just looking for a movie to watch, but if you can relate...you will really enjoy it.

Believable Story
Verified purchase
believable story line, including Lizzie's taking a "husband" to serve as a mere sperm donor. Pregnant Andie demonstrated a majorly caustic sense of "humor" as did the Sickoh Logic consultant that the couple had been talking with about their inability to conceive their own baby. Nothing UNexpected about Andie's decision to keep the baby nor about Lizzie discarding the ineffective sperm donor. Also nothing for me to identify with in the film although well acted, photographed, and directed for a three star rating.

unrelatable and forced
Verified purchase
This film had a lot of forced moments, strange situations, and an unbelievable plot. The acting was so-so from the two lead characters. I spent more time laughing AT the film than WITH it. It wasn't the worst film I've ever seen, but still pretty boring and unrelatable. Wouldn't recommend unless you're really bored.

It's like the writers knew nothing about babies and pregnancy
Verified purchase
It's like the writers knew nothing about babies and pregnancy. You can't hear a heartbeat on a doppler at six weeks. Ultrasound technicians do not like revealing sex before 20 weeks because it's too hard to tell. And realizing that labor happened because it was exactly 40 weeks? Everything about the plot had so many holes. The only reason I didn't give this the lowest score possible was because the actors were all pretty good.

Great movie
Verified purchase
I thought this was a great movie that addressed a lot of current issues. i.e. woman who wait until their 30's to want to become pregnant and then the struggles they face when they attempt to become pregnant, adoption, couples who fail to properly communicate and be honest about what they want from their spouse, drug abuse/addiction, Turrets, and the limits of friendship.

Watch this movie and see for yourself- everyone has different preferences. Maybe you will dislike it... but you won't know until you watch!

Expect to be surprised!
Verified purchase
This movie was quirkly and cute and details the oh so gray parts of the black and white of relationships. The situations are realistic, the dialogue is engaging and interesting, and the events show that happy endings can come in many disguises.

Funny and poignant story about a woman's struggle with infertility ...
Verified purchase
Funny and poignant story about a woman's struggle with infertility and how it impacts her relationships with her close friend and her husband. Having gone through my own problems getting pregnant in my 30's, I could relate to the lead character. The acting was first rate, especially from the two female leads, Michelle Monaghan and Radha Mitchell. Mimi Kennedy is hilarious as the marriage counselor.
