Jake and Kristy Briggs are newlyweds. Being young, they are perhaps a bit unprepared for the full reality of marriage and all that it (and their parents) expect from them. Do they want babies? Their parents certainly want them to. Is married life all that there is? Things certainly aren't helped by Jake's friend Davis, who always seems to turn up just in time to put a spanner in the works.Written by

When Kristy tells Jake she stopped taking the pill, he is shown on a rocket sled which crashes into a concrete wall. When it explodes the size of the flame doesn't match the size of the wreckage - it's clearly a model. See more »

I like John Hughes a lot, so naturally I wanted to see She's Having a Baby. She's Having a Baby is not Hughes' best movie by a long shot, and is not a masterpiece but it is a watchable and charming movie. It is too short, unevenly paced having the odd dull stretch in the middle, has some weak spots in the script and the story is rather predictable. However, it is nicely filmed, has a beguiling soundtrack, it does have its funny and charming sequences, the direction is assured, the ending did get to me and I thought it was beautifully done, and the performances from Kevin Bacon, Kirsty Briggs, Alec Baldwin and the rest of the cast are natural and not too forced. Overall, a nice if lacking film. 6/10 Bethany Cox
