AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Full of poop jokes, broad racial stereotyping, and other tired gags, My Baby's Daddy makes the absolute least of a decent premise.

Movie Info

Three lazy pals find they're facing fatherhood simultaneously in this light-hearted comedy co-written by star Eddie Griffin. Lonnie (Griffin), G. (Anthony Anderson), and Dominick (Michael Imperioli) live stress-free lives with Lonnie's trash-talking Uncle Virgil (John Amos). But when all three young men's girlfriends get knocked up at the same time, they're forced to take a long, hard look at their lifestyles. For G., who works at the family grocery store of his girlfriend Xi Xi (Bai Ling), that means saying no to criminal temptation and staying on the straight and narrow; for Dominick, it means taking time out from his busy career as a record producer and coming to terms with surprise revelations from his baby's momma; and for Lonnie, it means recognizing ghetto-fabulous girlfriend Rolonda (Paula Jai Parker) as the gold-digger she is and finding a new lady love without sacrificing his individuality. Directed by Cheryl Dunye, whose previous features were low-budget indies, My Baby's Daddy also stars rapper Method Man as imposing ex-con No Good.

Critic Reviews for My Baby's Daddy

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (18)

Director Cheryl Dunye (The Watermelon Woman, Stranger Inside) has been fighting the good fight for years as an independent filmmaker, so I guess she's entitled to take the money and run.

There are some jokes here, and any of these situations could have been funny as skits. Taken together, they're incoherent.

Associated Press
Top Critic

The antic, energetic performances are game, but they're overwhelmed by erratic pacing and disorganized writing.

Top Critic

A father wincing at the sight of his baby's green poop is the highlight of this laugh-free comedy.

Births a big litter of bad jokes for every chuckle it manages to squeeze out.

Top Critic

A tired send-up of hip-hop-isms that also aspires to be a Waiting to Exhale for men.
