I'm not a fan of comedies at all, yet I adored Baby Mama. It's a comedy with a heart, and does not rely on crude humor for it's laughs.

To its credit, "Baby Mama" is not your typical one-joke movie starring "Saturday Night Live" alums. It's more of a one-and-a-half joke movie. In "Mama", Tina Fey's OCD career woman, unable to conceive and unwilling to wait for an adoption, hires Amy Poehler's ADD surrogate mother to carry her baby. How will this odd couple survive nine months together? With hilarious results, of course. Well, moderately hilarious, at least, thanks in large part to its two seriously talented comedic leads. This contemporary …

I've really enjoyed what little I've seen by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler -- mostly online recaps of their Election 2008 coverage, but still, it shows comic talent. So when I was home convalescing after knee surgery, we picked up their recent buddy film, Baby Mama, to pass a little time. Sadly, it seems they should have kept making hay of Sarah Palin's political inadequacies, because this film -- though rife with potential and boasting a fine supporting cast -- was 99 minutes I could have better spent …

If there's been a trend in Hollywood, it's been the desire to have and keep babies. `Knocked Up (Unrated Full Screen Edition),' `Bella,' and `Juno (Single-Disc Edition)' were a part of that trend last year.     This time it's the turn of yupwardly mobile single mother, Kate (Tina Fey). She has it all, even if she hasn't found or kept Mr. Right. She's been promoted to Vice President of Development of Round Earth Food Stores, an organic health food grocery chain. Barry (Steve Martin) …

(to the tune of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds)     Picture yourself on the near side of 40   You've built your career, now it's time for a child   Visit the sperm bank, no time for a lover   The man on the video smiles     Visit the doctor who's shaking his head   Pondering over your eggs   It's darned unlikely they'll ever be found   Where they are     Chorus:   Guess …

I wish I would have liked this movie a little more.    Pluses -- I found several scenes to be laugh out loud funny and as a collector of humor and great one-liners I would consider purchasing the film for those film moments alone. Both actresses shine with physical comedy and in the art of sarcastic one-liners. I was surprised by a plot twist. Steve Martin played freak with great flair and over-the-top weirdness. He may have been the best part of the movie.    Minuses …
