Although the big picture itself gets mushy, the small moments, especially involving Fey, are sharp.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Though the competition hasn't exactly been stiff, Fey and Poehler may well be the best female comedy duo since Lucy and Ethel.

In a pleasing contrast to Fey's sharpness, Poehler keeps her performance unpredictable and fuzzy. In this just-add-water comedy, a very...

NEAT MOVIE. RECOMMENDED. GRADE: B+

Baby Mama

Loved the movie. My husband thought it was just okay, but he did laugh a couple of times. I think Tina Fey is a great talent. The other actors did a fine job too. I'd recommend it....

Pretty funny...
