Baby Boom

Critics Consensus

Baby Boom struggles to impart its feminist ideals, but Diane Keaton's winsome leading work helps keep things breezily entertaining.

  • The humor in "Baby Boom" is sharp without being heartless.

    January 26, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Constructed almost entirely upon facile and familiar media cliches about 'parenting' and the super-yuppie set, Baby Boom has the superficiality of a project inspired by a lame New York magazine cover story and sketched out on a cocktail napkin at Spago's.

  • "Baby Boom" makes no effort to show us real life. It is a fantasy about mothers and babies and sweetness and love, with just enough wicked comedy to give it an edge.

  • ''BABY BOOM'' isn't much more than a glorified sitcom, but it's funny, and it's liable to hit home.

    May 20, 2003 | Full Review…
  • As a gentle comedy, this works in spades and while lesser actors may well have relegated it to made-for-telly cheese, Keaton is, of course, loaded with charisma and comic sense.

  • If "Baby Boom" were a diaper, though, it would be disposable.

    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.

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