It is OK.
2 April 2014 | by petarmaticSee 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!
