Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average There's nothing terribly wrong with Baby Mama but it's probably better suited for viewing on television, where many of the participants cut their teeth. This is small screen stuff masquerading as something bigger.

USA Today Full Review
Good Yes, the film doesn't offer many surprises and grows soft and predictable by its conclusion. But it does avoid the sappy sentimentality of the genre. The movie — and its lead actresses — charms us more than we might expect.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 158 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:There were just a few children but they loved it.
TEENS:Both the males and females enjoyed "Baby Mama" very much. Approximately half loved it and most of the rest rated it above average, which is very good. Easily recommended.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:A little better than two-thirds of the females enjoyed it very much, with most rating it "Excellent" or "Fantastic." There were a fair number who only rated it as good/average. A small percentage even rated it lower. The male reviews are very similar. Chances are very high that you will really enjoy "Baby Mama," but a small percentage of you will likely be somewhat disappointed.
ADULTS:A little better than half the males truly enjoyed "Baby Mama." Most of the remaining reviews were good/average, which isn't bad, especially from guys seeing this type of movie. The female reviews are great. Over three-quarters loved "Baby Mama," and the rest rated it good/average. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Successful and single businesswoman Kate Holbrook (Tina Fey) has long put her career ahead of a personal life. Now 37, she's finally determined to have a kid on her own. But her plan is thrown a curve ball after she discovers she has only a million-to-one chance of getting pregnant. Undaunted, the driven Kate allows South Philly working girl Angie Ostrowiski (Amy Poehler) to become her unlikely surrogate. Simple enough...

After learning from the steely head (Sigourney Weaver) of their surrogacy center that Angie is pregnant, Kate goes into precision nesting mode: reading childcare books, baby-proofing the apartment and researching top pre-schools. But the executive's well-organized strategy is turned upside down when her Baby Mama shows up at her doorstep with no place to live.

An unstoppable force meets an immovable object as structured Kate tries to turn vibrant Angie into the perfect expectant mom. In a comic battle of wills, they will struggle their way through preparation for the baby's arrival. And in the middle of this tug-of-war, they'll discover two kinds of family: the one you're born to and the one you make.
