Baby Mama

30 Rock's Tina Fey stars as Kate, a 37-year-old career woman who finally wants to start a family but is told that she has a one-in-a-million chance of conceiving a baby. So she finds a working class lass from South Philadelphia, Angie (Amy Poehler), to be a surrogate mother. The problem is, before long, Angie turns up on Kate's doorstep looking for a place to stay. The uptight Kate has to peruse her 'pregnancy for dummies' books in order to turn Angie into the perfect mother-to-be.

Fey is a delight to watch throughout.

An essentially sweet-natured picture that doesn't go as far as it could.

An exhausting 90 minutes of SNL-centric mediocrity that gives one the nagging feeling that Tina Fey's inability to cut the cord is going to quickly start to cool interest in her upcoming projects.

The movie hardly allows itself any sharp moments at all -- it's much too sweet-natured to be cruel, and much too cheerful to be angry. It probably could have pushed a few more buttons, but Baby Mama aims to please and succeeds.

There’s a lot of talent up there on the screen, and some authentic laughs, but too much of it is comedy territory that was claimed long ago.

Designed as a vehicle for Saturday Night Live sparring partners Poehler and Fey, their reasonable chemistry is constantly undermined by pointless extended cameos from the likes of Sigourney Weaver and an awful, ponytailed Steve Martin.
