JULIE and Jason have been best friends for years with no romantic interest in each other. He sleeps with someone new every few days, and she’s looking for Mr. Right. Now in their thirties, they notice that their friends seem to lose all their good qualities when they have children - child rearing and romance don’t seem to co-exist. So, they decide to have a child together, share in child rearing, but pursue their own romantic lives. Things go well until he meets Mary Jane and she meets Kurt. Both seem like perfect mates. What could go wrong?

With a fine ensemble cast and a sharp script it’s probably unfair to class this as a straightforward rom-com but essentially that’s what it is.

It tries not to be with some x-rated language and an almost cynical view of love and relationships that makes for a lot of laughs and nods of recognition from those of us with young kids!

But for all that, you always know how it’s going to end - still it’s an entertaining enough ride to get there.
