I just expect more from Tina Fey. It made me laugh a few times, but the average episode of 30 Rock does more. Add to that, the way they trivialize conception and child birth (very similar to the cavalier attitude Juno takes) and well, I just didn't care for it.

Almost...

Tina Fey being one of my favorite ladies, with her sharp, silly-but-never-stupid writing skills bringing her to crush-level, I wanted so much more from this...her name under "Screenplay by" for instance. Ah, but her mere presence was enough for me to give it a go, and though it is in no way perfect, Baby Mama does have many redeeming qualities - and many laughs (Especially when compared to other female lead comedies.)

Fey and Poehler are a sparkling duo, they manage to keep up that great chemistry through a story that clunks every so often. All other characters seem incredibly minor - with Sigourney Weaver and Steve Martin almost, but not quite getting to the laugh-level they should have with their unusual roles. The love-story element was also missing something, and felt a little …

I Laughed So Much to the Point of Embarrassment

This film made me smile from ear to ear from the time it started until the credits started rolling. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler is an excellent duo because each of them are funny in a different way. Poehler is more goofy-funny (I still laugh every time I think of her, "Bitch! I don't know your life!" line). Fey is more low-key/smart funny. That's why they work well together. The script is witty in its own way and it's nicely paced. One-liners are abound and I couldn't help but think about them on the way home. All the characters had something to contribute to the overall picture, which is nice to see in the comedy genre. The only minor problem I had with it is that it sometimes resulted to cliches (the romance between Fey and Greg Kinnear). Nonetheless, this definitely made me and my friend …

Inconceivable?

Baby Mama wants to do too many things at once: tickle our funny bone, tug at our heartstrings, make us cringe with its awkwardness. It, however, only succeeds in fits and starts. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have good chemistry together, but both are solid comedic actresses and neither one can really hold together the dramatic portions of the film. The same goes for Greg Kinnear, who finds himself stuck in the "too-perfect for words" kind of character that only exists in films of this nature. Sigourney Weaver and Steve Martin also turn up, but both characters are strange and seem to only be around for the audience to make fun of; Weaver for her advanced-age pregnanies and Martin for his egomaniac health nut and all-around braggart, although his reward of five minutes of uninterrupted …
