Quick Baby Mama Review

Posted by Brandon |

Um...I did not sign up for heartwarming, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The trailers made me expect raunchy, stupid, silly and probably just plain wrong. Too bad every single part of the movie that was all of these things I had seen before...in the trailers. Seriously, I've never been so disappointed by being happy for characters and not being grossed out as I was watching Baby Mama.

The only reason that movie was worth watching was for those few awesome Amy Poehler or Tina Fey moments. There were a few funny parts with Sigourney Weaver, and I like Greg Kinnear, but the rest was way too cliched.

Avitable - I forgot to include this, but I liked every scene that Steve Martin was in.

I watched this on the plane to SC over Thanksgiving and had the same opinion. Other than what was in the trailer, there wasn't much more that made me laugh. I also thought it was extremely predictable -- I expected more from Tina Fey.

Becky - Predictable? I think that is a mild word for what this was. I figured out what was going to happen as soon as Greg Kinnear came on screen (ew!), maybe even sooner. You just had to sit back and wait, and wait, and wait for it to happen.
