Enjoyable Baby Bedlam
31 July 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

So as the title suggests we have a great baby switch in the hospital setting off a lovely chain of events.

It's reasonably easy to produce an average movie with the subject matter. Most of your audience will be thinking, what would I do? So they make their decisions, and the two families get along fine. This leaves you with the irritation of waiting for some totally irrational event to spiral it out of control into a sneering match.

Fortunately it is handled well with no clear cut, we like you... and now we don't. Their interaction fluctuates as you would expect in real life, as in they try to be pleasant and understanding, but ultimately do see things differently.

A Couple of good subplots occur to spice up the mix, making this quite a good film. The trade off with not letting the film drag on over 90 minutes means some of the secondary characters remain one dimensional and bland.

In summary the films starts a bit slow, good in the middle a little annoying at the start of the final act and rounds off... ah haa that would just hint at what the ending might entail. Pleasant.
