One of two role-reversal baby films of the mid-late 1980s that were top-billed by a star who was last named "Keaton". Diane Keaton starred in Baby Boom (1987) whilst Michael Keaton headlined 1983's Mr. Mom (1983) about three years earlier. The two actor-comedians [to date, September 2013] though have never collaborated nor been star teamed together on a filmed production, despite their same last name, which is the same as silent film comedian Buster Keaton.

I don't like the term "chick flick" but have come to realize that they do exist. This has to be the best movie like this for men. While it speaks to where women were in the corporate workforce in 1987 versus today, it also displays well the fact that it is the baby that causes Keaton's character to grow up, develop and become a more whole person than just the business tiger she was. The addition of Sam Sheppard as the veterinarian love-interest for Keaton is very well done. Sheppard appeals to men as a masculine, intelligent person willing to call his own shots when and where he wants. His ability to become valuable to Keaton who would have before seen him as valueless is priceless. This is a good "snowy Sunday evening" movie to go well with a good, hearty stew and a good friend.
