Baby Mama Reviews
any woman would be feeling empty at 37 so Kate really wants a baby to fulfill her life, the sad fact is she can't get pregnant so she hires Angie as a surrogate
there's some talented supporting players here from Sigourney Weaver to Steve Martin to Greg Kinnear to Dax Sheppard, sadly they all feel underutilized
this movie has a few chuckles but isn't laugh-out-loud funny and it feels long
plus they make the mistake of revealing the conflict too early
the film does show how modern motherhood is which should appeal to many
a baby changes everything, you don't have to be married to have a child, and there are alternatives to conceiving your own brand of happiness
(Full review TBD)
Angie is low-class and does not exactly see eye to eye. The two constantly butt heads as they constantly are at odds on how they should be taking care of the bun in the oven. When Angie's boyfriend Carl (Dax Shepard) and her break up, the two-start living together and the tensions between each other rise. To relieve some of the pressure try and get out more, which includes a scene with both of them being absurd at a night club, and Kate eventually dating Rob (Greg Kinnear). The movie unfolds in a pretty predictable finish.
Baby Mama is a sub-par comedy that relies all too heavily on you loving Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The two play their typical characters where Tina Fey seems a bit pretension and a go getter, and Poehler is everything but that. The comedic moments in the film are too far in between and a majority of them are featured in the preview. This fan may be enjoyed by some, but can be skipped by most, even if you are moderate fans of the stars, which is why I was drawn in.
