Movie Info

A successful young couple in a loving relationship is caught off-guard by an unexpected pregnancy in this battle-of-the-sexes comedy starring Jerry O'Connell and Heather Graham. Angela and Curtis are career motivated and upwardly mobile. They had no plans of having children anytime soon, so when Angela discovers that she's pregnant she isn't sure whether to celebrate the good news or mourn the death of her career. Should Angela's overbearing boss (Lara Flynn Boyle) catch wind of the news, there's no telling what will become of her career. Over the course of the next nine months, Angela and Curtis struggle with feelings of jealousy and suspicion while constantly receiving advice from their blissfully married best friends, Danny (John Corbett) and Sylvie (Katie Finneran), who may not be quite as content as their shiny, happy public act suggests.

Critic Reviews for Baby on Board

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

One winces for the cast, although end-title outtakes suggest that the principal stars had a high time -- which can only mean that when it comes to loving whoopee cushion humor, there is no middle ground.

Top Critic

It's clear that the writers, producers and directors don't have any idea what goes into the delivery of a child, nor how the legal system works

...a seriously underwhelming comedic endeavor that suffers from an almost total lack of genuine laughs...

Reel Film Reviews

This lightweight concoction about a pregnancy that throws a power couple into marital crisis is a smart, funny and raunchy surprise.

Audience Reviews for Baby on Board


Angela (Heather Graham of The Hangover) is trying to land a new vice president position by spearheading her first perfume line along with dealing with an impossible boss (Lara Flynn Boyle). She discovers she's pregnant but before she can give the good news to her attorney husband Curtis (Jerry O'Connell), she sees him in the arms of another woman and suspects he is cheating on her. Curtis thinks she may have been unfaithful as well because he always uses a condom while Angela is certain he's sleeping with a client. The situation is not helped by the bad advice coming from his buddy Danny (John Corbett of Sex in the City). They refuse to talk and work things out spending the next nine months giving one another the silent treatment.

My goodness it is lucky Heather Graham is so darn likeable. Otherwise I would be panning this big time, but thanks to her, this was watchable. Just.

This was an okay comedy...needed more side splitting laughs on this one. I was disappointed in a sense.
