There's nothing that stands out in any way from the script to the directing to the acting.

Boring and not funny.

if Lindsay thought this movie was ever going to hit theater screens, the joke was on her.

The film is just a puddle of mediocrity from filmmakers who couldn't be bothered with putting some effort into their work, and a lead actress who's only trolling for a quick paycheck.

Audience Reviews for Labor Pains

Surprisingly, this was not as bad as you might think. Lindsay Lohan, despite what she may be like in her personal life, is a fairly likeable actress, and she does light comedy well.
This is just a fun little movie, nothing that will blow your mind, but good to watch at home on the weekend. Funny in places, and really just a sweet movie.
I disliked the ending, but I must be going a bit soft in my old age, because I didn't feel like vomiting like I normally do when I see that particular ending in a movie. Inoffensive and light.

It's not throat slashingly bad, but it does miss an oportunity for good comedy. The scenario is there, the talent is there, but nothing is ever THAT funny. Amusing? Maybe, it wont wipe a smile off your face, but probably wont put one there either. Lohan is great, and it's a shame her personal life has kept her away from big vehicles. The rest of the cast do there jobs, but it's all too predictable. Probably a good job that this didn't go to cinema's, as it's certainly of (at most) rental quality.
