With a cast this great, is it so selfish to ask for something memorable?

Baby Mama is far more funny than it has any right to be and boasts a dynamite pairing that shows plenty of promise for the future: here's hoping Fey and Poehler pick something a little less formulaic for their next project.

This is one of those terrible terrible creations that just leaves me feeling a little uneasy about the way the film industry works.

Fey and Pohler are an appealing pair, with Fey's wry, deadpan delivery a perfect complement to Poehler's fearlessly juvenile brand of humor.

The reason this movie works so well though, is similar to why a good romantic comedy works. The chemistry between the two leads, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler is fantastic.

I've been majorly disappointed by romantic comedies over the past year or so.

Baby Mama adheres fairly closely to the conventions of the studio comedy, although it's never actually predictable, probably because the characters and subject matter are so novel.

Baby Mama quickly and lazily adopts all the annoying attributes of the usual fare.

Austin Powers screen mastermind Michael McCullers is the guy behind this sorta same-sex parenting satire, as SNL's Tina Fey and Amy Poehler do an extreme odd couple for laughs duet, ripping into the burgeoning baby consumer industry.

It's very much the women's show, and they prove enjoyable company, but there's more sugar than vinegar in the script which is stretched to find laughs.

The film is not exactly original but it is a lot of fun, thanks to the skill with which Fey and Poehler play to one another's strengths.

The Age (Australia)
August 29, 2008
An under-achieving, lightweight movie that settles for a few competent gags and doesn't bother to take risks.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Fey and Poehler are better than 95 per cent of the innumerable male comedy double acts around at the moment. May they never part, because their work here is an utter joy.

This formulaic feelgood romantic comedy delivers everything it promises with a streamlined screenplay about a single professional woman, Kate (Tina Fey) who at 37 is desperate to have a baby and the complications that beset her plans

There are plenty of laughs in this likeable and uplifting comedy that puts its own twist on life, love, relationships and babies.

With this story, and this cast, the movie ought to have been fun.

Michael McCullers' script is soft-headed to the point of inanity.

The film's talented performers are wasted thanks to a weak script.

It's as much fun as actually eating toddler vomit.
