In this light comedy directed by British writer-comedian Ben Elton, Sam and Lucy Bell (Hugh Laurie and Joely Richardson) are an upwardly mobile London couple who are trying desperately to conceive a baby. Along for the ride, which is laden with sperm-count and hormone-injection jokes, is a cast that reads like a Who's Who in British comedy. Rowan Atkinson makes an appearance as an obstetrician, Dawn French and Joanna Lumley show up as an Australian nurse and Lucy's snooty boss, and Emma Thompson

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
If ... you can still imagine that this might be just the kind of movie for you, please stay tuned for the forthcoming article about my resignation.
A romantic comedy so slick you can see the reflection of a hundred better movies in it.
This would be a stultifyingly incestuous affair even if all the jokes about fertilization weren't so tiresomely lame and predictable.
The problem with this romantic comedy is that although it eventually winds its way to a conclusion that feels right, it takes too many convoluted steps to get there.
In alternating between farcical spoof and bittersweet romantic comedy, Maybe Baby maintains a surprisingly secure comic footing.
Somehow wastes an impressive cast of otherwise talented British comics and actors.
Maintains a fairly smooth course on the delicate line between tenderly funny comedy and affecting, involving drama.
A perceptive comedy, punctuated with hilarious appearances from such notable faces as Emma Thompson and Rowan Atkinson.
Except for the pat conclusion, which seems to have arrived straight from test-screenings via a robustly fragrant wheelbarrow, Maybe Baby is undeniably touching, and -- hallelujah -- it's funny.
The Brits have done it again! Hilarious and heartwarming comedy about marriage, love, making movies, and making babies.
