baby mama

Let me start off by saying: Tina Fey's my girl. I so miss her on Update. Amy Poehler's pretty rad, too. So I had some expectations for this movie.... which were not met.

Baby Mama is the story of a workaholic career woman who suddenly finds out she can't have kids: a ginormous cliché if there ever was one. The thing is, clichés exist for a reason; there are plenty of us girls who ache to be mommies. I could totally identify with the scene in which Tina Fey's character surreptitiously sniffs the head of a stranger's baby. Many of us have that same hunger, which is why, I suppose, stories like this tend to find their market.

On the other hand, we like us some originality, too. Not a whole lot of that in this movie. If you've seen the trailer, you've seen the movie. It was completely predictable, full of stereotypes, and not one laugh-out-loud moment for me. Disappointing, really.

And what the heck is with Tina's look in this movie? She's got a distinctive scar on her face (one of the thing that makes Ms. Fey unique), which was nowhere to be seen.

Do we need a generic Tina? I don't. But that's what we get in Baby Mama.

UPDATE: Pistola just reminded me of one good thing.... Steve Martin and Sigourney Weaver kicked booty in this! Hi-larious.
