Baby Mama

My neighbor lent this to me last night. I had seen a few previews for it quite awhile back, and didn't think it looked great. But, having recently become a Tina Fey fan for her "political" work, I decided to give it a try.

The show is about a 37-year-old career woman who has never married. She has come to realize that she wants to be married and have a child, but the marriage prospect isn't looking promising. So, she looks into adoption, but that doesn't seem to be an option (at least not very soon), and she tries artificial insemination. When that doesn't work a doctor tells her she'd have a one in a million chance of getting pregnant. She looks in a surrogate mother, and decides to go that route. The agency she uses guarantees the surrogate will be thoroughly checked out for the small fee of $100,000.00. The surrogate she gets ends up being anything but the type of person she'd want, but they move forward with it.

Anyway, it was better than I thought it would be, and parts were even touching (I'll admit I cried a little). I asked Matt what he thought when it was over, and his response was, "eh".

100,000!!? I thought it was 10,000...that's just crazy! Glad you enjoyed it though. I love Tina Fey!

I thought this movie was FUNNY! I watched it with Beany - which probably helped. She's got a funny sense of humor and a cute laugh. :) I really enjoyed it. A bit crude sometimes -- funny story line, though.
