The premise should have hinted that this would be bad enough. But I kept hoping, waiting for one good LOL moment in each show that just never came. SJP was fine. Her kids were forgettable, friends pathetic & sad. But it was the husband that sealed the show's kiss of death for me. Monotone delivery of the only few good lines to be had though he sounded like he was reading off a TelePrompter the whole time. I began to dread his scenes. Save your money & time.
Weak, weak, weak
A bunch of GenXers getting drunk and out of control at a party and wanting a divorce is not quality entertainment. I'll admit I'm not a fan of SJP and have always thought the writers and actors around her had to work doubly hard to make a performance work. However, in this show, she's probably the strongest of the lacklustre bunch.
I was lolling
I thought it was hilarious.
