Almost Pregnant
9 August 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Thea Clayhill (Lindsay Lohan) is the reckless secretary of the arrogant publisher Jerry Steinwald (Chris Parnell) in the Steinwald Publishing. When Jerry fires her for an accident with his beloved dog, Thea lies and tells that she is four-month pregnant. Thea lost his parents in a car accident and raises her younger sister Emma (Bridgit Mendler) alone and can not afford to lose her job. Jerry takes vacation to stay with his dog and his brother Nick Steinwald (Luke Kirby) assumes his position and promotes. Thea decides to fake her pregnancy for a couple of more days with the support of her friend Lisa (Cheryl Hines). However her life changes for better and Thea is promoted to editor by Nick and helps him to publish the unconventional book of Suzi Cavandish (Bonnie Somerville) about pregnancy. Nick and Thea fall in love for each other but Thea does not stop the farce despite the advices of Lisa until the day truth appears.

"Labor Pains" is flawed, silly and predictable; but it is also delightful, charming, and cute and I liked this film. I am a fan of the talented Lindsay Lohan and for me it is very difficult to associate her image of sweet and gorgeous actress to her personal life of drug addicted, scandals and paparazzi. In the movie, Lindsay Lohan is very beautiful and her situation faking a pregnancy is funny and I really found this movie very entertaining. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Meu Trabalho É um Parto" ("My Job Is a Labor")
