Labor Pains Reviews
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.
very amusing a nice litttle sotrylinne which is worth a watch i think !!
And finally, for the Lindsay Lohan case... look, we're all aware that her career has taken serious blows over the last couple of years, especially after the flopping of the magically terrible I Know Who Killed Me. If anything, her headlining of Labor Pains isn't a misstep by any means, but that's not to say she brings her all to the role. Frankly, her performance is rather uninteresting and even artificial at times. It is still a bit of a pleasure to see the former teen queen onscreen again instead of on celebrity mugshots Hall of Fames, but I have seen her fare a lot better, especially in comedy. The supporting cast dillydallies between fairly good (Cheryl Hines) and fairly bad (Chris Parnell), but like their tabloid-friendly costar, there's nothing particularly notable about their work here.
This isn't a film worth lamenting about, really. Labor Pains avoids bad taste or syrupy sentimentality, and it even has a couple of swell jokes, but down the line, it is unremarkable to the extreme. Even if it rightfully finds the idea of treating pregnant women like demigods ridiculously funny, it has nothing in stores for those that are looking for another riff on the far superior Junos or Knocked Ups of this world. Everyone's gotten their paychecks now, so let's just forget about this film, mmmkay...?
Lohan was not very convincing as a mature guardian of her younger sister. I guess its hard to separate her as a person and a character...since she stays in the media so much! LOL
I agree with most everyone...not the best movie, not the worst...
