As for Bacon and McGovern, it`s sad to see these usually energetic performers labor through a tired script, rarely getting a chance to deliver.

Director John Hughes tries his best to give everything a sparky, pacey feel, but the end result is simply just not funny enough.

She's Having a Baby begins with the simplest and most moving of stories and interrupts it with an amazing assortment of gimmicks.

So very little works in She's Having a Baby that it's easiest just to grouse on how petty and little-minded and pro-conformity it is.

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.

In the lead role, Kevin Bacon is enthusiastic and believable, but even his energy can't carry what boils down to a fairly limp story.

[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.

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.

Taking his erstwhile teen lovers into young adulthood, marriage and parenthood, John Hughes fashions a curiously disaffected portrait of the artist as a frustrated chauvinist.

A rare failure from filmmaker John Hughes...

The dilemmas faced by the characters on screen have no greater urgency than those faced by the actors in television commercials.

Bacon`s character is such a chronic complainer than we wonder why McGovern doesn't dump him.
