• Baby Mama details

Baby Mama Synopsis


Successful and single businesswoman Kate Holbrook (Tina Fey) has long put her career ahead of a personal life. Now 37, she's finally determined to have a kid on her own. But her plan is thrown a curve ball after she discovers she has only a million-to-one chance of getting pregnant. Undaunted, the driven Kate allows South Philly working girl Angie Ostrowiski (Amy Poehler) to become her unlikely surrogate. Simple enough...

After learning from the steely head (Sigourney Weaver) of their surrogacy center that Angie is pregnant, Kate goes into precision nesting mode: reading childcare books, baby-proofing the apartment and researching top pre-schools. But the executive's well-organized strategy is turned upside down when her Baby Mama shows up at her doorstep with no place to live.

An unstoppable force meets an immovable object as structured Kate tries to turn vibrant Angie into the perfect expectant mom. In a comic battle of wills, they will struggle their way through preparation for the baby's arrival. And in the middle of this tug-of-war, they'll discover two kinds of family: the one you're born to and the one you make.



In Baby Mama, Amy Poehler plays Tina Fey’s surrogate mother. That sentence alone should be enough to get you pre-purchasing tickets. The presence of Poehler and Fey is enough to make this a must see, but unlike Tina’s last big screen success Mean Girls (coincidentally also Lindsay Lohan’s last big screen success), she didn’t write this one. That worries me.

Tina’s strength has always been as a writer, not necessarily as a performer. She’s funny because the words she’s saying are more often than not hers, or at least something she had a hand in. I’m not sure she’s destined to become the next Will Ferrell. Or on the other hand, maybe she is. Will’s best stuff, more often than not, happens when he takes a hands on approach to making it. When he doesn’t, the result is Kicking and Screaming. Here’s hoping that Baby Mama isn’t Tina Fey’s version of an awful kids’ soccer coach movie.
