The last two singles in the group — platonic best friends Julie and Jason — wonder if there’s a better way. They decide to have a kid together – and date other people.

Outrageous laughs and heartfelt life lessons abound in the new romantic comedy Friends With Kids that makes its Northern Arizona premiere at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre. The film will be presented at the Sedona International Film Festival's new year-round venue Tuesday, April 24 through Friday, April 27.

The critically-acclaimed, audience sensation features a stellar all-star cast including Jon Hamm, Edward Burns, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Megan Fox, Adam Scott, Chris O'Dowd and Jennifer Westfeldt.

Friends With Kids is a daring and poignant ensemble comedy about a close-knit circle of friends at that moment in life when children arrive and everything changes. The last two singles in the group - platonic best friends Julie and Jason - observe the effect that kids have had on their friends' relationships and wonder if there's a better way. They decide to have a kid together - and date other people.

Nothing proves as simple as they'd hoped. Their friends - who can't help feeling they are part of the system Julie and Jason have set out to "beat" - are threatened by their friends' choice and how well it seems to be working. And Julie, even as she gets more and more deeply involved with Kurt, finds herself falling hard for Jason - despite the fact that she's thought of him as a brother for nearly two decades.

There are big laughs and unexpected emotional truths as this unconventional 'experiment' leads everyone in the group to question the nature of friendship, family and, finally, true love.

Having kids proves to be the crucible through which all of these friends' lives are forever changed - in sweeping and surprising ways. There is great comedy and enormous feeling in this story about discovering the love of your life in the way you were least expecting.

Critics are raving that Friends With Kids is a "rapid-fire crowd-pleaser." Rolling Stone calls it "an indelibly funny and touching comedy."

Friends With Kids will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre April 24-27. Showtimes will be 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday (April 24 & 25) and 4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday (April 26 & 27)

Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For ticket information or reservations, please call (928) 282-1177 or visit the festival and theatre box office, located at 2030 W. 89A, in West Sedona. For more information, visit: www.SedonaFilmFestival.com.
