Julie (Westfeldt), a thirty-something Manhattanite who can’t find a guy to make her feel as alive as Jason (Scott), her platonic BFF from college. Her peers have already coupled up. Missy (Wiig) and Ben (Hamm) are so hot for each other, they sneak off for quickies. Leslie (Rudolph) and Alex (O’Dowd), appalled at the sight of kids in chic restaurants, live lives out of “Sex and the City”.
Skip ahead four years, and everything changes. Leslie and Alex have two kids they can barely handle, and have exiled themselves to Far Tortuga, meaning Brooklyn. Missy and a heavy-drinking Ben cope with a newborn and snipe at each other. The tension isn’t missed by Julie and Jason, but even they decide to enter the baby fray. One caveat: They share custody but maintain separate apartments and lives. When baby Joe is born, Jason still finds time to bonk dancer Maryjane (Fox), and Julie finds bliss in Kurt (Burns), a divorced father of two. They’re the envy of all their friends until Julie starts having feelings for the father of her child…
