3 October 2004 | by (Fairbanks, U.S. Territory of Alaska) – See all my reviews

When producing a movie about, say, Nazism or child molestation, it must be put across to the viewer very blatantly that each of those things is wrong and should, in no way at all, be condoned. The same should be true with a movie about cloning. This movie, No Ordinary Baby, fails in driving home the point that it is wrong to even attempt to clone human life. What we do see on the screen is a dance around that fact plus a pretty interesting story. Due to time constraints imposed by the network who produced this movie we're not able to get a little deeper into the lives of the main characters. They could have and should have broken free from their usual 90 minutes for a Made-for-TV movie and gone with 2 hours, something a few networks have been doing lately. With that extended amount of time they'd easily be able to explore a little more but here, like oh so many Made-for-TV movies, only the surface gets scratched. That's not too detrimental to this movie, though, and we're able to learn enough while going along for the ride which moves along swiftly, something that is very welcomed; there isn't much time at all to get bored. During certain moments I found myself quite the opposite and sitting at the edge of my seat wondering what's going to happen next, wondering what the characters next emotions will be. I've been a tremendous admirer of Bridget Fonda's acting for a long time now so it was a delight watching her in this as the intrepid reporter turned human being. This isn't the best written story but it works alright except it fails in delivering the knockout punch that cloning human beings shouldn't be done. There's never once a mention of the millions of children in the world who die each and every year merely because they don't have what we take for granted in the United States. While scientists spend millions of dollars on cloning research and while infertile would-be parents spend thousands and tens of thousands of dollars trying to conceive, children die because they don't have a few hundred dollars worth of medicine that would prevent curable illnesses. That's just one reason cloning is wrong. I'm not even going to go into how much God plays a part (and believe me, that part is HUGE!) Unfortunately, this movie, for some reason which is completely beyond me, seems to be more on the side of saying cloning is okay. Huh?! It actually leans more positive than a down the middle, without bias opinion?! Funding from pro-cloning groups here or what?! A very liberal leaning director? Well, whatever the reasoning, what happens in this movie should not be condoned. Period. My grade for this gets a split this time: B- for production but a big fat F for not coming right out against cloning which is what it should have done.
