So when they find out that Verona is pregnant they seem to be taking it in their stride. Verona is enjoying pregnancy, Burt is already practicing skill that he believes a good father should have, and they living in the same state as Burt's parents, Jerry and Gloria, so that their prospective daughter can have grandparents. However, things are shaken up when Burt and Verona go to dinner at Jerry and Gloria's house, as Burt's parents reveal a surprising piece of news. They have decided to move to Antwerp in Belguim a month before the baby is due, scuppering Burt and Verona's plans of having their children's grandparents around. Because Verona lost her parents when she was relatively young, she finds this news very hard to take, but the resilient couple quickly find a way to turn it in to a positive.

Conscious uncoupling

Two people with no chemistry and no appeal pretend to be the best imperfect normal couple and bore us all to death with their utterly contrived road trip to find the best imperfect home to raise their unborn child. Along the way they meet other parents that are mostly unbelievably flawed so that best imperfect couple can feel sensibly smug and constantly reaffirm their Gwyneth and Chris commitment. To my mind, this is Middle England's hideous 'aren't we nice' banality and passive aggressive self congratulation brought to the USA alongside a soundtrack that sounds like it's chosen by an old man trying to be an unironic hipster. There is no story, just a thin weave of pointless anecdotes. There's absolutely no reason to watch this and it's in danger of making one stay celibate and childless rather than have a life so dull. The most uninteresting, nay painfully tedious film I've ever seen. Lord save us good movie fans from such arrogant mistakes.

Two non-entities travel America seeing their horrendous friends

I usually enjoy Sam Mendes' films which is why I'm puzzled that he chose this plot less script. The story can be summed up as blank, characterless couple go around America meeting their horrible, unlikeable friends. The fact that Maya Rudolph's character is pregnant is supposed to make us empathize with the couple and their uncertain circumstances. All I could think about was that they were going to bring a child as boring and lacking in backbone as themselves, and maybe the sequel to this film would be that child traveling America, meeting its own horrible, unlikeable friends. The film is truly that pointless. Allison Janney appears to be carving out a niche for herself as middle-aged woman begging for a shaking, dunk in water, pie in face, or other forms of retribution most suited to an evil harpy masquerading as a human being. After seeing the exact same performance from her in 'The Way Way Back,' I'm starting to fear that this is what she's like in real life. It's a mystery that this film garnered positive reviews. People seem to think decent cinematography and a nice soundtrack can make up for a lack of storyline and even one sympathetic character. They don't.
