Heavily vested in its peculiarly glossy agitprop that, like Saint Sebastian, it invites the arrows of kneejerk derision. Too bad, as the film has really lovely performances.

Extended scenes are dominated by heavy dialogue, while the lighter moments are relegated to montages of prancing across a beach, for example, which simply aren't that effective at buoying the drama.

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.

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.

The film as a whole is amateurish and ungainly, can't find a consistent tone, is too long, is overladen with music that tries to paraphrase the story and is photographed with too many beauty shots that slow the progress.

Standard movie-of-the-week fare dressed up in Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes.

This isn't a movie; this is propaganda for the already converted.

It's neither entertaining nor thought provoking.

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.

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
| Original Score: 2.5/5
March 23, 2012
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.

"October Baby" may be well-intentioned, but it's as obvious and inert as a spoonful of mashed potatoes.

Faith-based drama about adoption, abortion, forgiveness.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 20, 2012
A slick piece of pro-life propaganda, it has relatively luxe production values, painfully earnest performances, and a drippy "inspirational" score.

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.

"October Baby" doesn't even meet the standards of decent propaganda. It is, in fact, indecent propaganda.

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

March 23, 2012
Trafficking in 2-D morality and unlikely to be seen by the unconverted, "October Baby" would have been better off as a bumper sticker.

A well-intentioned yet hopelessly ineffective drama...
