Audience Reviews for Baby Boom

This is a good movie about women and the workplace, it has an excellent cast, and it's funny too. I really liked this movie, and I highly recommend it.

Diane is a busy business woman who's life is turned upside down when a baby comes along. She retires to the country where she has a bottomless pit of a house. She falls for a vet. She makes baby food which she sells across the country. Funny movie.

Candy Rose

Super Reviewer


Yet another one of those childhood films. Cute, but predictable.
