super boring and girly. some good funny moments, but mostly unfunny with some really terrible jokes. poorly made in a lot of ways (1 viewing)

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's charming performances elevate the film's conventional plot.

this really belongs more on the Lifetime channel but both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler carry it in spite of it's familiar roots
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

I'm a bit partial with girls in comedy, I admit I like it. It is not top material hilariously because it is full length film and the story has to move along but some bits are definitely laugh out loud stuff. Some bits qualify more as drama than comedy though. Overall, it brings goody feelings of goodness all over speckeled with hilarious chunk. Good for the belly.

A typical comedy of tackling a topic into its own direction to create further situations - which is a nice touch as it can touch base to actual occurrences - and relying on the leading pair as fuel for laughter to form a comedic chemistry that work, but it only resulted to be funny above minimum slightly below expectation. It's simply a good film that was well-written around the middle to a satisfying resolution, including the very final minute being crafty. (B)

Baby Mama is directed and written by Michael McCullers, and it stats Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in a comedy film about a businesswoman that wants to be a mother, but wouldn't be able to do so, and she come across a company that pays a lot for wanting to be a mother, and so it come across a jobless woman that is going to be the girl's surrogate mother. I remember that I've seen this film for years as I was kind of young, but remember parts of the film, which got me introduced to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. So I figured that I watch it again to see how it holds up, and Baby Mama is better than when I saw Central Intelligence. The chemistry between Tina Fey and Amy Poehler is terrific as they got a lot of funny moments that you can tell that they been best friends for a while and can work together very well. I even like the chemistry between Tina Fey and Greg Kinnear as it's a very sweet one, even when it gets close to the end it was starting to be familiar. The beginning was a bit rough to watch as the jokes were not working for me, but when I start to get to know the characters and what their situations is while also what their mindset is like, the movie starts to get a lot better. The funniest part of the film is Romany Malco as every time he's in this, I just crack up, especially when he works with Amy Poehler. The plot is predictable, but there are some rare moments that caught me off guard however, which is more than I can say for Central Intelligence. Baby Mama is a really good movie that I hope it's the same way with their next film Sisters.

2/22/17 We had already seen this, so I was only half paying attention, but there are a number of funny parts. Many people say it is predictable, but it is definitely a new story line, and quite frankly, didn't exactly go in the direction that I thought it would. It is funny, and that's all that we really want from a comedy. Tina Fay and Amy Poehler are both their usual funny selves.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler co-star in Baby Mama. Fey is Kate, a hard-working single woman that is in her late 30s. She is feeling it is time to have a kid, but when her adoption request is denied, and she finds out she is unable to conceive herself, she decides to go through an agency to have a surrogate mother. Insert Angie (Poehler) who is far from being a conventional mother.

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.

like other films of theirs, I love these actresses but their talents are wasted on a poor script.

Typical Poehler/Fey concoction of so-called acting.

This one is both funny and sentimental with no big surprises, but plenty of laughs.

Hilarious movie that you would never believe came before the movie "Sisters"

All star team Tina Fey and Amy Poehler FTW!  About halfway through this movie turned completely from what I thought it would be.  This movie is cute and funny.  I really enjoyed the clubbin' scene and the scene when Poehler gives birth.  Comedy gold. Recommended.

Funniest movie I've seen in awhile!

Most of the characters are pretty awful, including the dull lead (Tina Fey why?) but Poehler stands out and is worth watching even though I kept wishing this film would quit being a comedy and she would really get nasty.
½ February 15, 2016
All for Tina Fey x Amy Poehler.

Funny overall but the subversive messages to moral living are almost too much to overlook. There are far better comedies to be enjoyed so I say give this one a pass.

What's the opposite of a bromance? Galmance? This is what Baby Mama is. It doesn't shatter the world, but it certainly delivers.

Amy Poehler + Tina Fey, but nowhere even close to as funny as Sisters.
