DVD Review - Baby On Board

by - 7/03/2009

Sometimes BIG surprises come in small packages. In the tradition of Knocked Up and Nine Months, BABY ON BOARD turns a would-be joyous occasion into a hilarious series of mishaps and misunderstandings for an ambitious career woman and her divorce attorney husband in this must-see, side-splitting romantic comedy. Heather Graham and Jerry O’Connell star as the stunned parents-to-be, while John Corbett and Katie Finneran play their “happily” married best friends. Lara Flynn Boyle rounds out the A-list cast in this 2009 theatrical release from director Brian Herzlinger.

Angela (Graham) and Curtis (O'Connell) have it all – a loving relationship, a beautiful house and successful careers. That is, until an unexpected pregnancy sends them on a nine-month roller coaster ride, which causes each to mistakenly believe the other is cheating. Now, they must deal with emotional and hormonal mood swings, as well as all the drama caused by their friends Danny (Corbett) and Sylvie (Katie Finneran), who suddenly find their own marriage on the rocks. Meanwhile, Angela worries that her job is in jeopardy as she strives to please her over-demanding boss, Mary (Flynn Boyle), while hiding her pregnancy… all adding up to one uproarious battle of the sexes.

Bonus features on both the DVD and Blu-ray editions of BABY ON BOARD include commentary by director Brian Herzlinger and producer Emilio Ferrari along with the trailer and photo gallery. The film is presented with Spanish and SDH English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.

My Thoughts : Lackluster and unfunny are the words that come to mind when I try to sum up this movie. It begins with a fart joke and ends with one - you can guess what the rest of it contains. I didn't find anything even remotely humorous in this dvd. Even my husband, with his juvenile sense of humor, didn't crack a smile at ridiculous shenanigans of the characters.

In short - A wooden star cast, together with juvenile jokes and a silly plot makes this a regrettably forgettable movie.
