BEST FRIENDS MAKE THE BEST MISTAKES.
Yoga instructor Abbie Reynolds (Madonna) gets drunk one evening and ends up in bed with her equally inebriated best friend Robert (Rupert Everett), who’s actually gay; then she learns she’s pregnant… Here’s a serious drama that tries to examine the concept of modern families, but the filmmakers’ ambitions are defeated by Madonna’s distracting performance (this movie could do without a star) and a lack of credibility. The final half-hour delivers a very unnecessary twist.
