This comedy is to this year's holiday season what Mrs. Doubtfire was to last year's, a mildly funny but utterly conventional and obvious farce.

Cute, amusing, but never hilarious.

A história é absurda, mas esta é uma daquelas comédias leves que servem como bom passatempo.

Bizarrely amusing and quotable.

A pregnant Schwarznegger? Whose brainchild was this? A repugnantly lame and unfunny comedy.

Obviously not one of the films that cause some people to call Reitman the "king of comedy"

A happy, healthy, bouncing baby of a movie.

The plot is a more fertile ground for comedy than the 'sperm milkshake' that made Schwarzenegger and Danny De Vito brothers in Reitman's Twins.

I've seen better movies, but I've certainly seen worse.

While initially amusing, it gets to be an old joke fairly quickly.

[Emma Thompson] is totally wasted in this movie.

Junior is passable entertainment, but it could hardly be called fully developed.

For the right audience, Junior may deliver. But there's a whole lot of pregnancy to go through first.

Junior demands more range from its leading man than he's capable of giving. The predictable result is a big-budget mess more likely to elicit groans than laughter.

As a comedy, Junior has its share of laughs -- but no more than its share.

A fleecy romantic caper with a dusting of feminism, the picture is basically a one-joke movie successfully nursed by director Ivan Reitman.

It's goofy and ridiculous and preposterous, and yet it makes you feel good, and there is something oddly heartwarming about the sight of this macho guy melting with feelings of protectiveness and maternal concern.
