Tina Fey's 'Baby Mama' Lacking Final Touch

April 22, 2008 03:51:12 GMT


Picking up a story that many career women nowadays could relate to, "Baby Mama" is setting its pace to be one of the great comedy movies. Sadly, some critics believe that the Universal Pictures' film perhaps could never be compared to Judd Apatow's films in the same genre. Noting that though it has what it takes to force a laughter out of the audience's mouths, it still falls short of being considered a fabulous movie.

Despite its effort in pairing up the two brilliant "Saturday Night Live" stars, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and supported them with other caliber actors Sigourney Weaver and Steve Martin, this comedy film is still contemplated by Reuters as a movie that "never fully delivers". Adding to the critics, The Money Times commented that though the film is "not a washout", it will still leave moviegoers "feeling 'that could have been a fabulous movie!'" since though there are many cracking moments, it is not lasting until the end.
