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

Trivia

In every scene she is in, Amy Poehler sports a different hairstyle and never repeats the same one twice. See more »

Goofs

Angie would never be able to be a surrogate without having a child of her own first. All reputable surrogacy agencies in the US require their surrogates to have had at least one full-term, live birth before becoming a surrogate. See more »

Quotes

Kate Holbrook: [upon learning that she's pregnant] But that's impossible! The doctors said I had a one-in-a-million chance.
Dr. Manheim: Well, I'd start buying lottery tickets more often, if I were you.

Baby Mama is Delightfully Deceitful ***
30 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tina Fey again goes beyond 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live to prove that she is a major talent. Fey, who certainly helped cause the defeat of the McCain-Palin ticket in November, is just fabulous here as a 37 year old career woman obsessed with having a child.

Unmarried and finding that nothing is happening, she seeks out surrogate parents, the woman well played by Amy Poehler.

Things become involved when Poehler has deceived Fey and there are added complications when Fey falls for former attorney, Greg Kinnear, who now is basically a healthy soda drink guy.

The end is amusing and really what you would expect but this is a fun picture so go enjoy it.
