      From the man that brought us the Austin Powers movies comes a new kind of comedy. Well Baby Mama isn’t really a new kind of movie; it is a comedy movie that has two leading ladies and no one else. Baby Mama might be the best movie from both Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, but is that really a good thing when you consider their track records?

      Successful and single businesswoman Kate Holbrook (Tina Fey) has put her career ahead of her life. Instead of having a family of her own Kate has gone all the way to the top at her work place. At the age of 37 she has finally realized that she wants a child of her own now. Her plan isn’t so easy as she discovers her condition is preventing her from having a child, her chances are literally a million to one shot.

      Kate turns to finding


      a surrogate to have her child and that woman happens to be a southern Philadelphian girl named Angie Ostrowiski (Amy Poehler). When Kate’s surrogate gets pregnant she goes out of her way to make everything around her baby proof and that means making sure Angie’s life is a complete dull fest.

      The plot to Baby Mama sounds an awful familiar. I tried real hard to think of any other movie like this but all I could come up with was Three Men and a Baby, which is not really like this film. Some of the jokes do seem familiar and it seems like the dick jokes happen more than they should. Trying to get a dick joke out of a businesses logo is pretty low especially since that logo pertains to a smoothie shop.

      Some of the movies other jokes seem to drag on way too long. Sticking with the smoothie shop, there is an ongoing joke on how this small shop is awfully similar to the big juggernaut store. It almost seems like the movie is poking fun at Wal Mart and how they ruin businesses. Instead of flat out comparing anything to Wal Mart the movie decides to go with their other approach, ruining a joke that should have stopped after the first time.

      That seems to be the lasting problem when it comes to Baby Mama. If it isn’t the ever lasting jokes you have small problems that seem to plague the movie. Anyone who choices to pay attention to this movie will find a lot of tiny problems that should have been fixed before the movie came out in theaters. Baby Mama isn’t the worst thing out there, but I would have expected a more polished film from the man that brought us the Austin Powers movies.

      Steve Martin offers ...


      • Baby Mama, comedy film
      his talents in this movie as the boss to Tina Fay’s character. I was glad to see Martin in another comedy, but why was he wasted in this movie? When Steve Martin was cracking jokes it really felt like he was given the short end of the stick, which ended up making our two leading ladies look that much better. At times it really feels like Martin just did this movie for a quick pay check, though I’d like to think differently since he is a comedy genius.

      The blu-ray version of Baby Mama is presented in 1080p widescreen with a ratio of 1.85:1. All of the films colors are dead on, giving the film a nice picture throughout the entire film. Though the movie is presented in a true high definition experience I couldn’t help but notice a few scenes that seemed off. Maybe the camera person messed up during

      the movies production but again this really shouldn’t be a problem with a movie like this. Sound wise the film is full of energy in its lossless tracks. Everything fro the street sounds to the characters talking sounds real good.

      For the extras it seems like the movie is lacking. The feature commentary includes the writer and director Michael McCullen, producer Lorne Michaels, Amy Poehler, and Tina Fey. For the most part the track has some nice interesting facts; I just couldn’t help but notice quite a few times where everyone feels like they weren’t having a good time. Even if they were forced to do this track they should have sounded a bit more professional.

      This is not the movie that is going to turn Tina Fey and Amy Poehler into comedy geniuses. Baby Mama does have enough laughs to make the movie worth a rental, but I think that just might be enough.

I honestly hated this movie.No offense to those that like it, this isn’t suppose to be taken personally, I just thought that the movie was underwhelming. The plot was weak, the acting was underwhelming, and really I just couldn’t get into it. Once again this is just my opinion.
