Storyline

After years of struggling to conceive with her husband, Lizzie has given up hope of having a baby on her own. But when her best friend Andie finds herself pregnant after a one-night stand, an unexpected solution arises: Andie offers to have the baby and give it to Lizzie. The couple agrees to the plan, on one condition: Andie must move in with them for the duration of the pregnancy. But can the women's friendship survive until birth? Jessie McCormack's debut is a refreshingly candid comedy about planning ahead for life's unexpected detours. Written by Tribeca Film

It is OK.
2 April 2014 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

I do not want to write anything against this film, because I am kind of indifferent about it. It is more for the girls then for the big boys like me ;) Plot is from life and I liked it because of it. I always like realistic plots from life. It is probably how it looks to have a surrogate baby being expected in L.A. So plot is OK.

Acting is very good short of being excellent, but nothing out of extraordinary.

Music is well chosen especially one in the end of the film. Very nice.

Otherwise I am quite indifferent about recommending this film for someone else to watch it, because I feel only a notch better after watching it. So if you are a girl and like babies this is a film for you. Otherwise, you big men, take a hike!
