"October Baby" looks and feels like a Lifetime movie waiting not to happen.

The odds that this has happened in the real world approach those of being struck by lightning and eaten by a shark at the same time. With a winning lottery ticket tucked in your swimsuit.

[An] earnest, faith-based drama, which lacks sufficient entertainment value to make its message go down more palatably.

Trafficking in 2-D morality and unlikely to be seen by the unconverted, "October Baby" would have been better off as a bumper sticker.

"October Baby" doesn't even meet the standards of decent propaganda. It is, in fact, indecent propaganda.

"October Baby" may be well-intentioned, but it's as obvious and inert as a spoonful of mashed potatoes.

Extended scenes are dominated by heavy dialogue, while the lighter moments are relegated to montages of prancing across a beach, for example, which simply aren't that effective at buoying the drama.

Like the bloodied placards brandished by demonstrators outside women's health clinics, the film communicates in the language of guilt and fear.

The closer Hannah gets to her goal, the more insistent the sermonizing becomes. By the time she confronts the woman who rejected her (a careerist lawyer), we are neck-deep in Lifetime TV bathos.

A film whose poignancy is hard to deny whatever side of the abortion debate you fall on.

Directors Andrew and Jon Erwin, who also contributed to the story, rarely let their film get didactic, instead going for a more low-key approach.

Newcomer Rachel Hendrix grabs attention and sustains sympathy as a lovely yet troubled 19-year-old student determined to unlock the secrets of her past.

Roger Ebert

Top Critic IconTop Critic

The film as a whole is amateurish and ungainly, can't find a consistent tone, is too long, is overladen with music that tries to paraphrase the story and is photographed with too many beauty shots that slow the progress.

A slick piece of pro-life propaganda, it has relatively luxe production values, painfully earnest performances, and a drippy "inspirational" score.
