Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: One winces for the cast, although end-title outtakes suggest that the principal stars had a high time -- which can only mean that when it comes to loving whoopee cushion humor, there is no middle ground.

- Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly, Thursday, April 2, 2009

Rotten: ...a seriously underwhelming comedic endeavor that suffers from an almost total lack of genuine laughs...

- David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews, Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Rotten: It's clear that the writers, producers and directors don't have any idea what goes into the delivery of a child, nor how the legal system works

This is such a loathsome comedy that you feel the actors compelling you to put them out of their collective misery. Its Heather Grahams second pregnancy comedy in two years, except in 2008s Miss Conception she wanted to get pregnant. Has Graham become the new face of the ticking biological clock? Graham is a perfume exec who gets in the family way. And how do we reveal this big news? By extended farts and projectile vomit. Stay classy. Instead of approaching an impending baby seriously, the film uses the pregnancy as an inane romantic comedy wedge. Grahams hubby (Jerry OConnell) doesnt think its his because he double bags it. She thinks hes a cheater. Their misunderstandings are predicated on the idea that nobody ever stops to say anything that might clear the air. This stuff is beyond sitcom level contrivance. Then the film becomes a battle of the sexes debacle as neither side wants to give in and leave the home, so were treated to a montage that zooms through EIGHT MONTHS of pregnancy. This is a comedy with no real feel for pacing, tone, setup, or context. The actors crank it up like theyre bouncing around in a farce, when this is really just a witlessly vulgar Knocked Up knock-off. The director (by the guy who made a movie trying to go on a date with Drew Barrymore) doesnt so much deliver the jokes as pronounce them dead. This is a vacuum of funny with awful jokes, awful acting, awful attempts at being bawdy, and an even worse sentimental transformation at the end. This is without a doubt one of the most disastrous, abominable comedies of late and should have been terminated at the early script stage. Watch the trailer and spare yourself the agony. Even the trailer cant help but indulge in a fart joke. The trailer, for gods sakes. Nates Grade: D-

As far as laughs go I got my monies worth. John Corbett is absolutely hilarious playing a cheating husband instead of his usual nice guy role. Baby On Board represents what real marriage is like in todays world. Definitely full of laughs.

Despite the fact that is is one of those romantic comedies that is entirely predictable, it is pretty funny. It has some funny lines, and some of the petty things that they do to each other are pretty funny. I was actually surprised at how many actors that I recognised because it seems that Heather Graham hasn't been in anything since she was in Austin Powers.
