Freaking Hilarious!! Must Watch!! 10/10

The girls are back in town. This is the movie that will back Tina Fay a movie star.
Baby Mama
Starring Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Sigourney Weaver, Greg Kinnear, Dax Shepard, Steve Martin, Holland Taylor, and Maura Tierney.
Directed by Michael McCullers.
Rated PG-13.

"Baby Mama" is a funny and even cute comedy for the spring season. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are great together. Still, I wish the screenplay would have a little more funny. Don't get me wrong, it is a funny movie, but the previews show a lot of the funny parts. I still enjoyed the premise and watching the two ladies act together. Just a little disappointed. Steve Martin has a little role that is stupid, and Sigourney Weaver needs to get better roles. Still, see the movie for Amy and Tina! They are so good together
"Baby Mama" is a good comedy with a slight touch of dramedy insofar as we do get to learn something about the two main characters, played by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, of "Saturday Night Live" fame. The film is more than just gags about childbirth. We learn about one character's loneliness and obsession with career and the other character's history of not believing in herself or her own intelligence.







A snoozer ... my wife made me see it. Yawn.
This movie was funny but I would not want to wash it over and over again. It was good but not that good.
BABY MAMA
Written and Directed by Michael McCullers
Starring Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Greg Kinnear, Sigourney Weaver and Steve Martin

Kate Holbrook: It's nice to feel needed, useful, important.
Angie Ostrowiski: I like all of those words.

This one's for the ladies! Here we have one woman, Kate Holbrook (Tina Fey), who cannot get pregnant and then enlists another woman, Angie Ostrowiski (Amy Poehler) as her surrogate, or in the more contemporary sense, as her BABY MAMA. Angie leaves her dope of a common-law partner and moves in with Kate and the two go from cat fighting to slumber parties in no time. They're having babies; they're talking boys; they're singing along to Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" in the living room. The estrogen practically slinks off the screen in stilettos. If only this expectant comedy didn't deliver such expected results.

The female bonding originates with Fey & Poehler's offscreen friendship and makes for some fabulous chemistry and spontaneous hilarity but it never successfully hides the gaping story holes. Having paid an exorbitant amount of money to a firm that screens its surrogates thoroughly should have essentially eliminated Angie as an option, as she has no functional understanding of what it means to take good care of herself. Before long, perhaps to intentionally rattle us from the unoriginal unfolding of the odd couple one would ordinarily expect, Angie's intentions come into question in such a manner that it becomes practically impossible to continue letting the good times just go on. Good clean fun is replaced by awkward angst.

This contemporary comedy draws our attention to the business of babies. It does so however in such a hackneyed fashion that if it weren't for the talented mama's at the forefront of it all, it would be little more than a painful delivery.

Although there were some funny anecdotes, Baby Mama misses the
mark. It was a promo for Faye but still had a few kinks in the plot.
I was forced to see this with my mom and sister and was dreading it. However, I was pleasantly surprised as it ended out being pretty much 2 hours with a smile on my face. It's extremely cliched and unbelievably predictable but Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are probably two of funniest women out there, especially together. I came to the conclusion that pretty much anything Fey does I at least like a little.

***
This movie was not one which was highly anticipated by myself, but I must say that its performances by Fey and Poehler, were great due to their experience with one another in SNL. I also liked the various supporting actors/actresses throughout the film.

The storyline was obviously one which women would easily relate to, while men would still find many things fun to watch, would not appreciate the underlying story as much. This was especially one that women would enjoy due to the ending being so positive.

I would not be against recommending this film, but I would probably let new viewers know the basic story and hopefully they are not expecting humor one usually finds on SNL.
