Baby Mama (Tina Fey - hot or not?)

Today I'm reviewing yet another movie off my Netflix list.

My apologies, but apparently the only way I can get out of the house to see a movie if it's:

A) Animated
B) 3D
C) Stupid
D) Stars Brendan Fraser (also, see "C")

Ugh.

Today, I'm reviewing:

Baby Mama


Baby Mama is a heartwarming story about a single woman (Tina Fey) who's uterus is apparently drying up as she gets older.

(I heard that a simple tube of lube will help this, but I was not consulted on the script)

Okay - maybe 'heartwarming' is the wrong word here when describing dried up female genitalia.


Regardless, desperately she turns to a Surrogate agency to have someone else carry her child.

This someone else is Amy Poehler who is in a relationship with her "common law" husband, played by Dax Shepard.

Personally, I think Dax Shepard steals every single scene he's in. He really, really needed to be in more of them. Hilarious.


The movie takes about 40 minutes to kick in and start getting funny - which is about the time Amy Poehler and Dax Shepard's characters show up.

Throughout the movie we also have appearances by:

1) Steve Martin
2) Sigourney Weaver
3) Greg Kinnear
4) Maura Tierney

..and more...

...prompting my wife to say:

"Holy crap - there's a lot of people in this!"

The last time we said that was while watching "Vantage Point" which sucked more balls than Paris Hilton at a Chippendale convention...

...so we're not having a good feeling at this point.



(On a side note, "Vantage Point" ALSO starred Sigourney Weaver...so I'm making a note here to not rent anything with her in it in the near future)



There are a couple of twists to the movie, one of which was obvious and one that threw me for a loop.

However, throughout the movie, I kept thinking the following:

1) Greg Kinnear needs a much bigger part in this.

2)
Steve Martin could make waterboarding funny.

3)
Is Tina Fey hot? She has nice legs...but no top lip. Is she hot?

4)
OH MY GOD ALL I CAN HEAR IS "Bessie Higgenbotteom" from "The Mighty B!" every time Amy Poehler speaks.

5)
Seriously - is Tina Fey hot or is it the glasses?


Overall, the movie is pretty entertaining and I laughed out loud a number of times.

My Score:

2-1/2 Mooge Splats (out of a possible four)



Now, excuse my while I head over to hotornot.com and see if Tina's picture is there.

I'm just not sure which way I'll vote.

Moog out.

The plot wasn't that great, but the little asides w/Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were funny.
I think that Sigourney Weaver and Steve Martin stole the show.

I agree with AngryMan. What the fuck is wrong with me?

Tina Fey is most definitely hot. Glasses make her a bit uptight librarian, those are always the most fun to loosen up.

Plus she's funny. Funny girls = hot!!!

Amy Poehler though is smokin
