Streamline recommends “Friends With Kids” as the thing you should watch on Amazon Prime this week. Amazon adds this movie on July 28.
“Friends With Kids” has a notable cast. Kristen Wiig. Jon Hamm. Maya Rudolph. Adam Scott. Megan Fox. And Jennifer Westfeldt starred in, directed and produced this. Westfeldt and Hamm were partners from 1997 until 2015.
The movie premiered in 2012, just months after the movie “Friends With Benefits,” which starred Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake. Despite the name, “Friends With Kids” isn’t a sequel, so don’t confuse the two.
The movie has a wild plot. Two friends decide to have a baby but to parent in rotating shifts so they each can maintain some semblance of independence. Then the friends start dating other people, leading them both to realize they have feelings for each other.

What Else Is New This Week
“The Glass Castle” almost earned notability last year. Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts star in this adaptation of the popular memoir from 2005. The producers likely planned for this to be Oscar bait, so the mixed reviews made this seem like a failure. But now a year has passed and maybe the time has come to give this another shot.
The full Amazon Prime list for the rest of the week:
- How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2017)
- Tumble Leaf: Season 4 (Prime Original series)
- The Glass Castle (2017)
- Friends With Kids (2012)
