Fresh: The funny, felicitous Baby Mama exploits every stage of pregnancy except the first. No hanky-panky to bump this plot in motion.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are the glue that holds Baby Mama together. With two less likable funny-women, or two actresses that lack their chemistry, it wouldn't be nearly as funny as it is. The story deals with surrogacy, and the issues that new types of reproduction technology introduce into age-old human relationships. There's an unnecessary romantic subplot shoe-horned in the narrative, as well (it's virtually against the law to not include one, right?), but the majority of the comedy results from the relationship between Tina's straight-laced career woman, and Amy's not-so-straight-laced character. It's all ridiculous and absurd, and I enjoyed ever minute of it. The ending falters a bit, in its efforts to give everyone a happy resolution, but the movie overall is a solid comedy.
