Friends with Kids, John Hamm, Kristen Wiig

Jon Hamm has been in a relationship with the marvelous Jennifer Westfeldt for many years, and has been in all of her movies. Most recently, he had a large supporting role in Friends With Kids, a romantic comedy about two platonic best friends (Westfeldt and Adam Scott) who decide to have a kid together. Here’s my review from 2012. Note the hideous Photoshop poster image.

Scott and Westfeldt are part of a group of six friends who’ve known each other a long time, including Hamm and Kristen Wiig as a married couple.

In the scene below, four couples (our core six friends plus Westfeldt’s boyfriend and Scott’s girlfriend) have a New Year’s Eve dinner, and Hamm gets a crucial scene. It gets juicy around four and half minutes in.

  1. This appears to be the entire movie embedded here as a YouTube video? 1 hour, 44 minutes, 22 seconds of it anyway. I didn’t even know you could do that. Has the production company put the movie out as a free YouTube video? It seems odd they’d do that. Does this mean it’s also free on other On Demand-type outlets where I might see it on my TV in better clarity? (Or do they still make you pay for that?) I’ll check Amazon Prime, which I seem to have already and can get on my smart TV. Maybe some TV channel with On Demand? I can’t imagine iTunes would have it free. But quite a lot of things are available via my smart TV and/or Apple TV. I’ll check.

    • That’s weird. I found one scene and thought I pasted that. I’ll check the link and correct if needed.

      • I saw that scene alone on YouTube too. (“Dinner Scene”). Glad you fixed it, as I expect the full thing would cause download problems for some. But the full movie really is available too, for free! (See below.)

    • I’ve done some checking. It’s not currently available On Demand via a TV channel, but I can get it on my smart TV and/or Apple TV 3 different ways:

      Apple TV: Movies via iTunes Store : rent $4.99, buy $14.99
      Panasonic TV: Amazon app : rent $2.99, buy $12.99 (not free Prime)
      Apple TV and Panasonic: YouTube app: FREE

      I have to say this is sort of weird. The free YouTube seems to be “credited” directly to LionsGate, so I guess they’ve put it out this way. I don’t pay for any sort of paid subscription; it’s available free to everyone. I’m guessing that it was more recently put on YouTube and was available earlier only on iTunes Store and/or Amazon. It’s odd that it’s still at those places at a price, when you can get it via YouTube for free. I guess you have to shop around. I started the first minute or so: it seems to be in full 1080p HD.
