    Be gentle.
    HA! Geezus, I forgot how much I hate that movie. Thanks for the reminder.

    b) I had a hard time buying into the likelihood of a moneyed-elite-country-club-ensconced-Scarlett-O'Hara-ish Rose Byrne so warmly embracing the not-terribly-attractive-racial-mutt Maya Rudolph into her inner circle. Not being racist here. I got no beef w/ Ms. Rudolph. Just sayin' (most of) her ancestors clearly didn't step off the Mayflower, whereas I can picture Byrne's character proudly tracing her geneology back to same.

    Minor quibbles / oddities in an otherwise instant-classic movie.
    In regards to point b). I never really thought about that. I think the reason why she befriended Maya Rudolph's character was that in reality, Rose Byrne's character was extremely lonely. Seeing that her husband was never around and his kids hated her guts. All that shi shi bull**** was just a front. And she even said in the car that most people probably only liked her because she was good and planning parties and crap. MR's character was probably one of of the very few people that liked Helen not for the materialistic reasons. I think. I'm just guessing here. Loved that movie so much.

    It's also 2011 and Rose Byrne can't be much older than 30.

    She would have grown up in a world with Oprah, Michael Jordan, Bill Cosby and Barak Obama.

    Do we really think that rich white people in their early 30's/late 20's are all insanely racist by default?

    ok, see? now this is just going too intellectual....can't we just all have a conversation and revel in the fact that we see a chick hop on a sink and taken a massive dump in it in this movie?

    I'm 50, and I grew up in a world with MLK, Jr., Angela Davis, Arthur Ashe, Wilt Chamberlain, Andrew Young, David Dinkins, and I took an undergraduate class on race & media taught by Dr. Cornell West. Didn't stop me from witnessing -- and being the victim of -- more racial friction & division in Philadelphia & NYC from 1964-1984 than I care to recall.

    1) You've evidently been living in LA all your life. Other parts of the country can (still) be very different from here.

    2) I never said the Bryne character was insanely racist. Your assumption that it's a binary choice is disturbing, when I'd have thought it's obvious that there's a wide swath of shades-of-gray in between unconditional love vs. unconditional hate. The truth is, I would (statistically) expect the Bryne character (based on my experiences living in other parts of the country) to be indifferent to non-whites, where that indifference comes from passive acceptance of her heritage/environment rather than active contemplation & rejection of those not like her.

    Meanwhile, two of the stars of the biggest break-out comedy of the year, “Bridesmaids,” Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm, will be back together for “Friends With Kids,” written and directed by Hamm’s long-time partner Jennifer Westfeldt, who wrote and starred in indie hit “Kissing Jessica Stein” a decade ago. She also appears here, along with Hamm, Wiig, “Party Down” star Adam Scott, Megan Fox, Chris O’Dowd, Maya Rudolph and Edward Burns, for a film with the logline “When a few members of a close group of married and single friends start to have children, it has a big impact on everyone.”
