The low-key leads get the movie off to a slow start and sap any momentum generated by the arrival of their dysfunctional in-laws.
Director Alison Reid's film is too content to play the kooky in-laws for easy sitcom chuckles. Nor does Reid really make much out of the film's mockumentary format, dropping the premise in the film's final reel.
The Baby Formula is proof that lesbian romantic comedies are every bit as dopey as the straight variety.
I like the idea however it just wasn't done properly. I'm not even sure what was wrong with it other than the fact it tried to be hilarious but really didn't hit the mark. The acting was average at best and it seemed like not much thought was actually put into the script and dialogue. Maybe there was a lot of improvisation, but that certainly didn't work.
