Lovely unique story

My 13-year-old daughter and I watched this movie the other night and were very charmed. It’s a quiet story, but funny, with great characters. It tells a unique story in a unique way. For the life of us, neither of us could figure out why it is rated R. Yes, there are a couple of squares and a couple of sexual references, and a scene demonstrating how to use a tampon… on a hand… But it is very tame compared to many things we’ve seen that are PG-13. It’s a mature topic (surrogacy) but nothing inappropriate. Highly recommend for parents and mature middle school and older seeking an amusing modern story. Note: this is billed as a romantic comedy, but there is no romance. These characters are falling into friendship under off circumstances.

Why You Need Friends!

This well-told , well-edited but very unusual story about a kind of clueless single (and apparently somewhat unfriended) man who engages a surrogate to have a baby... allows us to see how the two of them go through 3 trimesters. The dialogue touches on abortion, single parenting, and the heart-breaking emotion going through pregnancy basically alone, but being monitored by this man who is 'buying a baby'. It's a good example of how life really pretty much demands that we have friends to help us through the rough spots!
