I loved the ending. You feel the awkwardness and you feel scared for them. Such a good way to make you feel as if you were a part of the movie.

Kathryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti both give amazing performances in this, give us characters that feel real, lived in, natural, and flawed. Their interactions and reactions to the various trials they face in trying to add another life to their family may sometimes be cringe-worthy, but they always feel real. You get a great sense of the arduous hurdles that some couples must go through in order to expand their family. However, this film stumbles a bit in that it meanders in places and feels a bit overlong. In the hands of lesser actors, this could have went off the rails, but Hahn and Giamatti keep you in it.

Kathryn Hahn's performance truly is something special. Paul Giamatti is fantastic too. This is very sad but feels real. You struggle with the couple throughout the entire movie, especially the last scene.

7/10, the start was pretty weird, and the ending, well, at least unexpected. Beware, there is a pretty cringy scene at the start where someone is watching hardcore porn, and that was cringe even while watching the movie alone. Also, the whole scene with the well, more than just naked woman picture is not much better.

I can't remember the last time I had such mixed feelings about a film.   

First things first - the first 15 or 20 minutes are awful and unnecessarily contributed to a run time of more than two hours.   I felt like I was sitting at the doctor's office next to them waiting to be poked a More
