Movie Info

Management consultant Diane Keaton has no time in her life for anything except her high-profile job. All this changes when she inherits a 14-month-old infant from a pair of recently deceased-and very distant-relatives. Intending to put the child up for adoption, she discovers that she has grown fond of the kid and has begun to thrive on the responsibilities of motherhood. All of this, of course, jeopardizes Keaton's love life and professional standing, but all turns out well when the baby

Keaton is fabulous in roles like this, where she plays the nervous, infectiously-spastic independent woman who has needs, particularly when they are written with equal parts gushy sweetness and savage wit by Nancy Meyers

With the ever-charming Keaton in the lead, the flick turns out to be as harmlessly entertaining as it is outlandishly unrealistic.

Delightfully funny and honest

So-so comedy with Keaton still straining to keep up with her post-Woody Allen career.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

A wonderful performance from Diane Keaton pulls the movie through.

F5 (Wichita, KS)

Comedy starring Diane Keaton about a Yuppie who tries to have it all in life.

Nice performances by Keaton and Sam Shepherd almost give this anemic comedy the energy it lacks.

Mildly cute chick flick with a great performance by Sam Shepherd.

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.

80's films, comedies in particular, seem to be exempt from having to make and sense and be anywhere near plausible, in fact many are all the better for it. Not Baby Boom though, Baby Boom is absolute crap, is insulting and boarders on child abuse (any child having to spend longer than 5 minutes in the company of Diane Keaton should have counselling). Diane Keaton can't do comedy, especially that of the physical kind! The baby is cute though.

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