Baby Mama

Rated NR

While Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have the potential to become a funny screen duo, this movie wastes their talents, for the most part. Fey plays a single woman who wants a baby but can’t have one. She’s got big bucks, so she pays a surrogate (Poehler) to carry her child. Poehler moves in with Fey, and hilarity is supposed to ensue. Small supporting performances from Greg Kinnear and an unbilled Steve Martin are OK, and the leads are likable. It’s just that the material isn’t up to snuff. Fey usually writes material she’s involved in, and her touch is missing from this movie. It’s just a series of pregnancy jokes that we’ve all heard before. Poehler can be very funny with good material, but grating when the material is less than fair. Needless to say, she’s grating this time out.
