Storyline

Successful and single businesswoman Kate Holbrook has long put her career ahead of a personal life. Now 37, she's finally determined to have a kid on her own. But her plan is thrown a curve ball after she discovers she has only a million-to-one chance of getting pregnant. Undaunted, the driven Kate allows South Philly working girl Angie Ostrowiski to become her unlikely surrogate. Simple enough ... After learning from the steely head of their surrogacy center that Angie is pregnant, Kate goes into precision nesting mode: reading childcare books, baby-proofing the apartment and researching top pre-schools. But the executive's well-organized strategy is turned upside down when her Baby Mama shows up at her doorstep with no place to live. An unstoppable force meets an immovable object as structured Kate tries to turn vibrant Angie into the perfect expectant mom. In a battle of wills, they will struggle their way through preparation for the baby's arrival. And in the middle of this ... Written by Universal Pictures

Funny and most definitely entertaining
7 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had mild expectations for Baby Mama like it looked like it would not be as funny as i would have thought, and the humor would be kinda unfunny and just tasteless, well i was wrong.I found Baby Mama to be none of those things for it had fresh comedy and good acting.In fact Tina Fey and Amy Pohler may be the next big thing in Hollywood comedy, which i hope happens.Like the film they both were so entertaining and funny to watch, and had nice and cool character structure.Thought at times the story seemed a little out there and some stuff in the plot was a little predictable its still a good film.Overall everybody should see this film if they are wanting a good laugh, and they didn't show all the funny parts in the previews.So go out and watch Baby Mama because its worth anyones time and money, and you will be glad you have seen it. 7.7 out of 10 stars
