Trailer: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in 'Baby Mama'

babymama1

We’re in the middle of the Preggo-dy renaissance. What with Juno being Knocked Up and now Baby Mama, they comprise the much ballyhooed prenatal trilogy that harkens back to the golden (bronze?) age of baby laughs, where Junior, Three Men and a Baby, and Look Who’s Talking left off. Tina Fey stars as 37 year-old exec, infertile but looking to have a child at any cost, until it rings up at a hundred grand for a top-grade surrogate. Enter bottom of the barrel, live-in candidate, Angie, played by Amy Poehler.

No, Baby Mama isn’t likely to cover much that hasn’t been already mined over the past year, but the big-screen pairing of Fey and Poehler may produce enough sparks to ward off the overly-precious tendencies of mom-com, and into something beyond Spring-throwaway fare.

Directed by Michael McCullers. Also featured: Sirgourney Weaver, Greg Kinnear, Romany Malco, and Maura Tierney. Scheduled Release: April 25th, 2008.

    I was only vaguely aware of Tina Fey until I saw 30 Rock… Which is simply brilliant. So I’m a little disappointed to see that this film, which features the talents of both Fey and Poehler, looks quite ordinary if the trailer is anything to go by.
