Critic Reviews for Baby Boom

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (1)

...a wholeheartedly underwhelming bit of '80s nostalgia.

Reel Film Reviews

Keaton is fabulous in roles like this, where she plays the nervous, infectiously-spastic independent woman who has needs, particularly when they are written with equal parts gushy sweetness and savage wit by Nancy Meyers

With the ever-charming Keaton in the lead, the flick turns out to be as harmlessly entertaining as it is outlandishly unrealistic.

Delightfully funny and honest

So-so comedy with Keaton still straining to keep up with her post-Woody Allen career.

A wonderful performance from Diane Keaton pulls the movie through.

Audience Reviews for Baby Boom

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.

Diane is a busy business woman who's life is turned upside down when a baby comes along. She retires to the country where she has a bottomless pit of a house. She falls for a vet. She makes baby food which she sells across the country. Funny movie.

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