Tina Fey's 'Baby Mama' Lacking Final Touch

Tina Fey's 'Baby Mama' Lacking Final Touch

Though reteaming 'SNL' comedienne Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to bring more cracking scenes in the film, critics noted that 'Baby Mama' lost its comedic touch in the final part making it less fabulous.

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.

"Mama" tells the story of Kate Holbrook, a buttoned-down unmarried but successful business woman who cannot have a baby of her own and decided to find surrogate mother. When she firstly met Angie Ostrowiski, she thought she has found the perfect candidate. Little that she knows, the gum-cracking, cocktail-downing Angie would turn her life upside down as the two completely opposite characters have to live under one roof and deal with each other's idea about preparing for the baby.

Set to be having its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday, April 23, "Mama" will come in theaters the following Friday, April 25. The film will mark the directing debut of Michael McCullers, the scribbler of the two Austin Power films, "The Spy Who Shagged Me" and "Goldmember". It will also see Greg Kinnear and Dax Shepard as the supporting cast.
