Remember “Kissing Jessica Stein”? Maybe not – screenwriter-actor Jennifer Westfeldt’s bi-curious indie family comedy was 11 years ago after all. Now she’s back again, adding director and producer to her resume with “Friends With Kids” (March 9). The film’s tag line “Love. Happiness. Kids. Pick two” kinda says it all.
The raunchy New York parenting comedy, starring partner Jon Hamm, Adam Scott and Kristen Wiig, sold to Roadside and Lionsgate at Toronto; here’s the Red Band trailer. (Our festival review and round-up is here. And Cannes interview is here.)
