Baby Mama (2008 Film) Review

Baby Mama is a movie I had been meaning to watch for a few years now. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are an amazing team most of the time. But even the best can have bad scripts, which I had my doubts originally.

Baby Mama is about a woman named Kate Holbrook. She is a young executive in a company, as she traded making a potential family for a high paying career. But now before she turns forty, she really wants a baby. Something she learns she can’t do due to her uterus being oddly shaped.

So she goes to an agency to look for a surrogate mother. The surrogate candidate is Angie Ostrowski, who already gives off a bad energy. While most agencies do great background checks, it becomes obvious that Angie has her own problems.

But Kate really wants her baby, and Angie really wants a check. But Angie soon realizes that she likes Kate a lot as a platonic friend. Which will eat away at her conscious because Angie lied about a positive pregnancy result.

Overall I liked Baby Mama. It’s a cute comedy, though very predictable. It may have some cheesy characters but it’s balanced out with talented actors. I’m glad I finally sat down to see it.

Score: B
