The film was made in Acapulco, Mexico. Six women -- dreamy Eileen, abrasive Nan, athletic Skipper, brusque Leslie, vivacious Jennifer and patient Gayle -- are staying at a hotel in Latin America, run by Señora Muñoz. Fed up with the long delays of the adoption system in the United States, they are passing the days waiting to adopt local children to bring back home with them. Written by

Six women go to Mexico in order to adopt a child. Their ages range from early twenties to mid-forties and they all have very different ideas on how to bring up the child. John Sayles comedy-drama perhaps tries too hard to cover all the bases but he does it in such a warm and gentle way that he gets away with it. Occasionally it feels like your watching a play with each woman getting their big moment to shine with an extended piece of dialogue but the performances by all the women are excellent so you don't really mind too much. Though it could be Rita Moreno who almost steals the film as the head of the adoption centre which might get rewarded on oscar night. 'Casa de Los Babys' is an enjoyable touching film that may just make you broody! (8/10)
