1794 - Friends With Kids
This film has a powerhouse cast and everyone works really well, although I think Kristen Wiig was underused. Without getting into any spoilers, because this is a film worth discovering fresh, I loved about the first 90% of it and just felt a tad let down by the ending. That's not to say I didn't enjoy it all the way through but it does peter out a touch. That being said, the other 90% absolutely makes it worth watching (I swear!) especially if you're a parent, there's a lot of great stuff in here. Jennifer Westfeldt should make more movies - I'm a fan! And if you see this and adore it go back to the vault and check out a previous film she wrote (or co-wrote...) called Kissing Jessica Stein. This is currently on Netflix - so have at it!
