Hughes is simply doing what they tell you the first day of creative writing class: write about what you know. And he's doing it with both craft and a good deal of emotional honesty.

Like the couple he chronicles, Hughes seems to be profiting from the maturation process.

It should have been the movie where Hughes got Oscar nominations; the Academy weren't going to award his comedies, but here is where he showed he could branch out and grow up.

Aiming at a target as easy as suburban sterility, She's Having a Baby might be expected to hit its mark every now and then. But the film's mood is simply too sour, despite the best efforts of a cast filled with appealing actors.

Hilarious look at married life in Suburban Chicago

If She's Having a Baby were a funnier movie, if the fights were more cleverly written and Bacon and McGovern played them more deftly and lightly, it wouldn't have that unpleasant edge -- seesawing between romance and paranoia.

This plodding drama may have its heart in the right place but, along side a gaggle of similar angst-ridden Hughes dramas of the period, fails to stand out amongst the crowd.

[The film] assumes that boys will be boys but that the mystical act of fatherhood will make a man of you. Trouble with She's Having a Baby is, Hughes believes this without feeling obliged to develop it dramatically.

Director Hughes' effort to follow his teenagers into adulthood only results in cardboard cut-outs.
June 4, 2014
It's a measure of how little maneuvering room the movie leaves its performers that a lovely, sensitive actress like Elizabeth McGovern makes virtually no impression.
June 4, 2014
She's Having a Baby wants to be everyone's story, but its hollowness makes it no one's.

McGovern manages to fare better with the cliches thrown at her than Bacon does; but neither has a prayer of scoring at a game whose rules and players might have been dreamed up by a computer.
