2005, created by Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and billed as “a love story in reverse,” How I Met Your Mother turns the “Friends” formula on its head by having one of its main characters, Ted Mosby (voiced by Bob Saget), some 30 years after the modern day events of the show, relaying the twists and turns of said events to his two, often disinterested children (David Henrie and Lyndsy Fonseca).
It’s a nifty approach to what would otherwise be well-worn material, although the chemistry of the ensemble cast goes a long way towards smoothing over any feelings of seen-it-before-ness.
This movie will make you wish that they had made another parallel film called 9/10 (the day before) in which all of the people simply rode in the elevator and went home, sparing us this 90 minute steaming load. The only thing that may be even more useless is a moment of prayer.
It's just about what you would expect in awfulness and starring Whoopi Goldberg and Charlie Sheen.

At the end of season one, Ted realized his feelings for Robin and pursed her (again). As the second season continues, Marshall pines over Lily and the Ted-Robin relationship blooms.
The contrast between Marshall and Ted makes for a hearty chuckle, as they are as night and day. One day he wakes up and understands it is time to move on.
