Goofs

Early in the film, an elderly woman looks disapprovingly at the main character ordering a decaf coffee (after telling her that caffeine is bad for the fetus). In fact, caffeine is bad primarily because it raises blood pressure without providing any nutrients to the fetus. This is not the case with decaf coffee. The blood pressure change associated with decaf coffee is not statistically significant and puts the baby at no risk of harm. Theoretically, if a pregnant mother drank dozens of cups of decaf coffee it *might* increase her blood pressure but it is very unlikely (not to mention very difficult to actually achieve that level of consumption). Most experts agree that caffeine is safe during pregnancy if limited to 200 mg or less per day. See more »

Quotes

Tully: I'm here to take care of you.
Marlo: I thought you were taking care of the baby.
Tully: Yeah, but you pretty much are the baby. I mean, even though this one's been earth-side for three weeks, her DNA is still inside of you.
Marlo: [chuckles] Right, yeah.
Tully: No, actually her cells will hang around in your bloodstream for years, and though Mia here will be her own person someday, right now she's still very much an extension of you. She knows your smell, your voice, your heartbeat. And you know her better than anyone. I ...

Fantastic
5 May 2018 | by plasticanimalzSee all my reviews

Charlize was great, as always, and Mackenzie Davis was magical. It's a real-world take on Mary Poppins. Was really looking forward to this film and was not disappointed. Diablo Cody took a darker turn from Juno with Young Adult, which was darkly hilarious, and she again took a stark subject and sprinkled it with hope and a bit of whimsy. The film is not going to make you want to run out and become a mother but it also paints a more real look on how motherhood can be hard, stressful, seemingly impossible at times, but ultimately rewarding. It's not your glossy, magical look on motherhood, falsely advertised in most film and TV. I can't say much more on it without giving away the plot which needs to be seen for itself. But the themes they explore in the film are highly relatable for anyone whether they have kids or not. It will leave you thinking.
