Many of the Bridesmaids cast members show up for this romantic comedy that seems to be taking an unconventional route for most of its running time. Too bad it cops out and falls apart in the last reel. Written and directed by Jennifer Westfeldt, who also stars, the cast is great, and the movie works until the implosion. Adam Scott and Westfeldt star as two best friends living in Manhattan who decide to have a kid together while still dating other people. They are likable actors, as are co-stars Kristen Wiig, Jon Hamm, Maya Rudolph, Chris O’Dowd, Edward Burns and Megan Fox. Westfeldt writes good dialogue, and Adam Scott is The Man, especially when he’s allowed to be a little mean. It’s a shame they couldn’t come up with something better than the torpedo ending.
