A well-intentioned yet hopelessly ineffective drama...

tries to walk a line between abortion drama and adoption drama. All the wringing of hands in this film are results of cliches we've seen in television and movies for years.

While it's better than most movies of its kind, it's still pretty weak entertainment, though choir members should feel free to sing its praises. Amen.

Sometimes it is simply impossible for me to look at a movie with complete objectivity.

A couple of scenes - especially one with a cop with a heart - are touching. Depending on your point of view, October Baby does manage to score more than a few points.

The filmmaking is lugubrious and heavy-handed, and the dramatic arc stagnant and airless.

"October Baby" looks and feels like a Lifetime movie waiting not to happen.

Faith-based drama about adoption, abortion, forgiveness.

A definitely pro-life story that will anger those who see no redeeming aspect for this position. For those who do agree with the premise this will be a cause for celebration.

Heavy-handed proselytizing trumps genuine emotional impact.

The odds that this has happened in the real world approach those of being struck by lightning and eaten by a shark at the same time. With a winning lottery ticket tucked in your swimsuit.

Timed to come out in the middle of a political dogfight over birth control, when candidates tell their supporters that they'll "get rid of Planned Parenthood," October Baby could have hot-button appeal for a certain audience.

Avoids the outright preachiness of the Sherwood Productions films … certainly a good-looking film … too much tell and not enough show.

Instead of taking the WWJD pronouncements and beating us over the head with them, Guy goes for the truth and takes us there, teary eyed

May be somewhat distasteful in subject and dubious in theme, but its presentation is as bright and shiny and polished as the fresh face of its pretty young star, Rachel Hendrix.

Sloppily gums the subject of abortion, never discovering truth or feeling. It's all forgiveness and climactic smiles, missing a great opportunity to bring a direct point of view forward worth some honest post-screening conversation.

[An] earnest, faith-based drama, which lacks sufficient entertainment value to make its message go down more palatably.
