Storyline

J.C. Wiatt is a successful New York business woman known around town as the "tiger lady." She gets news of an inheritance from a relative from another country and off the bat she suspects it's money. Well it's not money, it's a baby girl. At first she doesn't accept until the lady that gives the baby to her has to catch her flight. J.C. is now stuck with an annoying baby girl. Her boyfriend doesn't like the idea of a baby living with them and he leaves her. J.C. has enough of it and takes her to meet a family ready to adopt her. She leaves but hears the baby cry while walking away and has to go back. The baby is too attached to her now and won't let her go. Later, her baby gets into mischief which causes her to get fired. Now, she sets her eyes on an old two story cottage in Vermont to get out of the New York life. When she arrives, the house needs more help than originally thought. She gets bored one snowy day and decides to make apple sauce. Her baby loves it and she decides to sell... Written by Kyle <Kyleshivers@aol.com>

Quotes

Stockboy: [pushing cart overflowing with toys to J.C.'s taxi; J.C. holds Elizabeth] Believe me, J.C., you made the right choice. You're going to be a partner, for Christ's sake - your career comes first. Look at it this way.
J.C. Wiatt: Yeah.
Stockboy: [stops cart next to taxi] You spend a few days with her, you got her all these toys, $1700 worth of clothes. Come on, that's not a bad haul, if you ask me.
J.C. Wiatt: [extends hand] Well, I just want to say thank you for your support, Jesus.
Stockboy: [shakes J.C.'s hand] Hey, no problem! Nice to meet ...

Baby Boom
3 July 1999 | by (Marietta, OH) – See all my reviews

Sweeter than sugar Keaton is delightfully charming in this pleasant comedy about a high powered business executive who lives in her work, until she inherits a baby girl from distant relatives who have been killed. Lovely all the way through with a witty script from Nancy Meyers and Charles Shyer and good support from the always wonderful Shepard and from Sam Wannamaker.
