Baby Mama, the new film about a single woman who hires a surrogate mother that stars Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, opens today. Our critic Michael Sragow gives it a C. Here's his review, along with a trailer of the movie, if you haven't seen that yet.
Even before Sragow weighed in, I wasn't very hopeful for this movie, even though both Fey and Poehler can be wickedly funny. Fey plays Kate, a single, "Type A-plus" (according to Sragow) businesswoman who commissions a baby from the character played by Poehler, who is less moneyed and more fertile.
I've had enough friends suffer through fertility problems that I know there's really nothing funny about it, so that colors my view. What do you think about making fun of this subject?
