I wanted to like it, but couldn't

I really wanted to like this movie because not only is this John Krasinksi's first lead-role in a major picture, it also has many of his hilarious 'Office' co-stars. And Christine Taylor is in it. ~~drool~~

But after a few attempts at watching, I always gave up on it shortly after those idiotic mechanical-babies got introduced. Who the heck is the clown who thought to introduce such an idiotic concept, and then to use them for all jokes for rest of movie?

Another major problem was that Krasinski as well as his Office co-stars played the exact same personalities as they play on the TV show. Either its really bad directing, or they are all single-skill actors. You have Mindy as the annoying wife/gf, you have Angela as the bitch, you have Brian as the loud crazy fat guy. and you have John as the bumbling but good-hearted guy, using all same facial expressions he does on the tv show.

And Robin Williams. Man, he used to be so good, and usually had one great hit followed by one bomb, but last few years, he's carpet bombing every single project he touches.

Add in the over-used under-performing so-called 'actress' Many Moore (I avoid anything this person is in... only reason I gave this a chance was because of the 'Office' casting), and also add in one of most annoying actors in the industry (Josh Flitter - how old is he? I seriously can't tell if he's a fat kid or a chubby dwarf? i have no idea), and finally top it off with a lame director using same cliche rom-com style film (boy meets girl, boy tries please girl's family/friend/or in this case - pastor, boy can't please them, boy loses girl, but then boy re-connects and declares love for the girl). You have now all the ingredients of a grade A bomb. Enjoy.
