She's Having a Baby Reviews

Michael Wilmington

Top Critic IconTop Critic

If She's Having a Baby were a funnier movie, if the fights were more cleverly written and Bacon and McGovern played them more deftly and lightly, it wouldn't have that unpleasant edge -- seesawing between romance and paranoia.

[The film] assumes that boys will be boys but that the mystical act of fatherhood will make a man of you. Trouble with She's Having a Baby is, Hughes believes this without feeling obliged to develop it dramatically.

It's a measure of how little maneuvering room the movie leaves its performers that a lovely, sensitive actress like Elizabeth McGovern makes virtually no impression.

She's Having a Baby wants to be everyone's story, but its hollowness makes it no one's.

McGovern manages to fare better with the cliches thrown at her than Bacon does; but neither has a prayer of scoring at a game whose rules and players might have been dreamed up by a computer.

Bacon`s character is such a chronic complainer than we wonder why McGovern doesn't dump him.

In the lead role, Kevin Bacon is enthusiastic and believable, but even his energy can't carry what boils down to a fairly limp story.

Taking his erstwhile teen lovers into young adulthood, marriage and parenthood, John Hughes fashions a curiously disaffected portrait of the artist as a frustrated chauvinist.

Aiming at a target as easy as suburban sterility, She's Having a Baby might be expected to hit its mark every now and then. But the film's mood is simply too sour, despite the best efforts of a cast filled with appealing actors.

She's Having a Baby begins with the simplest and most moving of stories and interrupts it with an amazing assortment of gimmicks.

The dilemmas faced by the characters on screen have no greater urgency than those faced by the actors in television commercials.
