The Last Kiss

Synopsis: Michael and Jenna, having been a couple for three years, want to get married and start a family. These plans seem to be well on their way when Jenna announces that she's pregnant.

At a wedding of a friend, he meets a free-spirited college co-ed, Kim, who opens his eyes and leads him on a dangerous path away from Jenna. Meanwhile, none of the relationships of the people surrounding Michael and Jenna are happy and stable. Michael's friend Izzy is unwilling to let go of his childhood sweetheart Arianna; Kenny is a handsome stud who fears commitment to his latest conquest Danielle; and Chris is a co-worker who is dominated by his neurotic and overbearing wife over raising their newborn son. Even Jenna's parents, Stephen and Anna, are experiencing problems in their long-suffering marriage.

What are you thinking about?

I was just thinking how convenient

it is for me that it's considered hip

to drive a $20,000 hybrid.


And how lucky I am that you love me.

I love you, too, babe.

I'm 29 years old. I'll be 30 next month.

When I was a kid, I used to close

my eyes and try to picture myself at 30,

and this is what I saw.

A great job, still best friends

with the guys I grew up with,

and in love with a beautiful girl.

So far, I gotta say

that my life has turned out

pretty much exactly

the way I imagined it.

We have something to tell you.

We have something to tell you.

-You're getting...

-A baby.

-A baby?


Oh, my God!

How did you do that?


-I'm 10 weeks.

-You are 10... Oh, my...


-Ten weeks.

-Oh, yay, yay!

-Congratulations, Michael.


Sweetheart, champagne!

I'm overwhelmed.

All right. Champagne.

Let's get some champagne.

Let's drink a toast. Oh, my...

-Honey, where's the champagne?

-It's in the bar, under the sink.

Now, you can't have any champagne,

but we can drink for you.

We're very good at that.

All right, I'll be right back.

Don't say another word, please,

until I'm here.

-So, what do you think?

-Well, I think it's a...

It's a very big thing.

Traditionally, not the first big thing

of your adult life.

We've talked about

getting married before.

We just...

You know,

Michael's been so busy working,

and I'm in the middle of my dissertation,

and it just...

I don't know, it feels weird now.

We don't want people thinking

we're getting married 'cause we have to,

-because that's not why we would.

-Nobody will think that.

Remember Lucy's wedding?

Oh, honey, please.

That girl's a slut.

She completely trapped that guy.

Case in point.

No one's gonna think that about you.

Open this, darling.

It's warm!

Well, of course it's warm.

We never drink it.

If I open this, it's going to explode.

It's all right.

Just live on the edge, Stephen.

Open the bottle.

Open the bottle because

I'm a grandmother,

-and I want to celebrate!

-Okay, here we go!

Come on, get it while it's hot.

-Hooray, hooray.

-That's for you.

-Oh, my God.

-Oh, my...

-No, just a little, Dad.

-It's the last drink you're gonna have.

All right.

To my little girl and her little boy.

-Or girl.

-Or girl. I was going to say that.

And here's to the young man

who's responsible for the whole thing.

Who's feeling more responsible

by the second.

Quite right.



If you have to settle down,

if you absolutely have to

become an adult,

and have a baby

and all that comes with it,

this is the kind of woman

you want to do it with.

You couldn't ask for a better girl.

Your cousin stayed fat.

Tricia was enormous

to begin with, baby.

She grew to the size of a parade balloon

when she was pregnant

but then she went back

to being a regular fat-ass.

The point is, she's a fatter ass now

than she was before.

And, you know, she's always dieting.

She talks about dieting.

If you look in her purse,

it looks like

she just went trick-or-treating.

You're cruel.

I am going to be fat and ugly.

Baby, no matter how fat you get,

you could never be ugly.

And as long as I can find these

perfect breasts amidst all the rolls,

I'll be happy.

And this ass!

-You have the greatest ass in the world!

-Wait, wait!

So when it's large,

it'll just be that much greater!

-Come on! What? I can't hear you!

-Stop! Stop it!

I can't hear you!

You are so pathetic.

Oh, my God, why? Why?

What did I do to deserve this?

You're just an incredibly lucky woman.

Will you start eating with me, big boy?
