Baby Mama

Baby Mama
Rated PG-13
96 Minutes
Nicole’s Rating: B-

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have a great connection on Saturday Night Live, they bring the connection even closer onto the big screen.

Kate (Tina Fey) is a single working woman who is longing to have a child, but can not have one, so she goes to a clinic where they help her with choosing a surrogate mother. Angie (Amy Poehler) turns out to be the surrogate, but she’s nothing like Kate. A white trash woman with a redneck past ends up living with Kate and the usual “Odd Couple” stories take place.

The movie was kind of predictable and you could tell what was going to happen, but you can’t help but laugh at the jokes and physical comedy. There are some lines in the movie that make you laugh so hard it makes your side hurt. I guess the reason why I enjoy this movie so much, is that I can relate to Kate…someone wanting to have a child so bad, but can’t and you almost become immune to the fact that it might never happen.

This movie is good for anyone that understands the value of family, children and the need of unconditional love and for anyone that likes to laugh at one liners.

It's absolutely good for the one liners.
