A successful young couple in a loving relationship is caught off-guard by an unexpected pregnancy in this battle-of-the-sexes comedy starring Jerry O'Connell and Heather Graham. Angela and Curtis are career motivated and upwardly mobile. They had no plans of having children anytime soon, so when Angela discovers that she's pregnant she isn't sure whether to celebrate the good news or mourn the death of her career. Should Angela's overbearing boss (Lara Flynn Boyle) catch wind of the news, there's no telling what will become of her career. Over the course of the next nine months, Angela and Curtis struggle with feelings of jealousy and suspicion while constantly receiving advice from their blissfully married best friends, Danny (John Corbett) and Sylvie (Katie Finneran), who may not be quite as content as their shiny, happy public act suggests. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This is such a loathsome comedy that you feel the actors compelling you to put them out of their collective misery. It?s Heather Graham?s second pregnancy comedy in two years, except in 2008?s Miss Conception she wanted to get pregnant. Has Graham become the new face of the ticking biological clock? Graham is a perfume exec who gets in the family way. And how do we reveal this big news? By extended farts and projectile vomit. Stay classy. Instead of approaching an impending baby seriously, the film uses the pregnancy as an inane romantic comedy wedge. Graham?s hubby (Jerry O?Connell) doesn?t think it?s his because he ?double bags it.? She thinks he?s a cheater. Their misunderstandings are predicated on the idea that nobody ever stops to say anything that might clear the air. This stuff is beyond sitcom level contrivance. Then the film becomes a battle of the sexes debacle as neither side wants to give in and leave the home, so we?re treated to a montage that zooms through EIGHT MONTHS of pregnancy. This is a comedy with no real feel for pacing, tone, setup, or context. The actors crank it up like they?re bouncing around in a farce, when this is really just a witlessly vulgar Knocked Up knock-off. The director (by the guy who made a movie trying to go on a date with Drew Barrymore) doesn?t so much deliver the jokes as pronounce them dead. This is a vacuum of funny with awful jokes, awful acting, awful attempts at being bawdy, and an even worse sentimental transformation at the end. This is without a doubt one of the most disastrous, abominable comedies of late and should have been terminated at the early script stage. Watch the trailer and spare yourself the agony. Even the trailer can?t help but indulge in a fart joke. The trailer, for god?s sakes.
Angela (Heather Graham of The Hangover) is trying to land a new vice president position by spearheading her first perfume line along with dealing with an impossible boss (Lara Flynn Boyle). She discovers she's pregnant but before she can give the good news to her attorney husband Curtis (Jerry O'Connell), she sees him in the arms of another woman and suspects he is cheating on her. Curtis thinks she may have been unfaithful as well because he always uses a condom while Angela is certain he's sleeping with a client. The situation is not helped by the bad advice coming from his buddy Danny (John Corbett of Sex in the City). They refuse to talk and work things out spending the next nine months giving one another the silent treatment.
being a girl, i usually love cheesy romantic comedies, but this one was soo tacky and lame. Only stuck through it because it was raining outside. I did laugh at one point though: when Lara Flynn Boyle said 'hospitals arent really my thing' - her plastic surgery fiasco has her looking like a chipmunk! Poor skinny, skinny lady.
I wasnt sure what i was getting myself into when i put this on but wow....it was funny at times i will admit (the gay guy, lol) but very crude....I wouldnt recomend it but if you want to watch it then go ahead.
Despite the fact that is is one of those romantic comedies that is entirely predictable, it is pretty funny. It has some funny lines, and some of the petty things that they do to each other are pretty funny. I was actually surprised at how many actors that I recognised because it seems that Heather Graham hasn't been in anything since she was in Austin Powers.
As far as laughs go I got my monies worth. John Corbett is absolutely hilarious playing a cheating husband instead of his usual nice guy role. Baby On Board represents what real marriage is like in todays world. Definitely full of laughs.
