Sincere but lacking

Somewhat good comedy/drama, with the drama part being unable to deliver, about a couple trying to conceive. Hugh Laurie is really good playing the husband Sam. He is funny, entertaining, and delivers on all his comedy scenes. The husband decides to write a script about the couple's ordeal of going through the process of conceiving. Joely Richardson is...well, delivering lines. Her acting felt more like she was reading lines rather than acting. Anyways, her character has to deal with the temptation of being with another man and also the process of trying to conceive. The movie was somewhat entertaining until my roommate asked me: "If this is a comedy, why are you not laughing?". Why indeed? The movie is actually not that funny with exception of Hugh Laurie and Emma Thompson playing a very funny new age character. Rowan Atchinson (Mr. Bean) also appears.
