Baby on Board [Blu-ray]
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Angela (Heather Graham) and Curtis (Jerry O'Connell) have it all – a loving relationship, a beautiful house and successful careers – until an unexpected pregnancy sends them on a nine-month roller coaster ride. Now, they must deal with jealousy and suspicion, Angela’s over-demanding boss (Lara Flynn Boyle), plus all the drama caused by their “happily” married best friends Danny (John Corbett) and Sylvie (Katie Finneran). It all adds up to one uproarious battle of the sexes in this romantic comedy that truly delivers!
Commentary with director Brian Herzlinger and producer Emilio Ferrari

So to the people that liked it - how much are the studio paying you to write the 5 star reviews?
Watching a movie like "Baby On Board," one really appreciates star power. Though the performers are all good and sometimes land the gags with good timing, it's tough to be engaged fully. O'Connell has the ability to play both the goofy fall guy and the romantic lead, yet here he's somewhere in the middle. Boyle scores points as the boss from hell, as she manages to elicit sympathy for what could have been a one-note performance. The Blu-ray edition is pretty bare bones, with only the bonus basics -- director commentary, trailer, and photo gallery.
BABY ON BOARD is the kind of unromantic noncomedy that is so bad that you will be tempted to press the pause button multiple times to wonder aloud to your partner, your cat, or (if viewing alone) your nearest houseplant:
1) After that dopey summation, why is everyone in the movie treating Jerry O'Connell like a really smart lawyer?
2) Is that really Lara Flynn Boyle?
3) Did any of these actors actually read the script?
4) Would any pregnant woman really stop strangers in the street to tell them she's not pregnant (when they don't care, and she knows she really is)?
5) Wouldn't it be great to see Heather Graham in a decent movie?
6) Isn't there a limit to the number lame/offensive/fart jokes you can put in a single movie?
7) If Jerry O'Connell really were a really smart lawyer, why, when wrongly accused of adultery, wouldn't he simply tell his wife she's wrong?
8)) Why would Heather Graham, when accused of carrying another man's baby, not simply tell her dim bulb/really smart lawyer husband he's wrong?
9) Can anyone really get away with going to work for nine months while keeping her pregnancy a secret?
10) I try not to write negative reviews, but shouldn't I warn people about this one?
Of course, some movies are so bad that you can enjoy them for their sheer awfulness. I can't even offer you that consolation about BABY ON BOARD.

I have given this film to every acquaintance that was expecting their first born. After watching it, it takes the edge of the new responsibilities. Outrageously funny!Published on January 3, 2014 by Hawkeye
Here's 95 minutes I'll never get back. It starts out okay but then when they have to create excuses for a BIG communication problem it all goes downhill. Read morePublished on October 19, 2010 by MISTER SJEM
The DVD version of this movie would make a good coaster, or possibly a Christmas tree ornament. It could be broken and the shards used to perform an emergency tracheotomy. Read morePublished on May 29, 2010 by S. Schafer
Baby on Board is a bit strange to say the least.
One moment the jokes are innocent, clean, and almost adorable. Read more
IT IS A BAD COMEDY WITH 1 OR 2 LAUGHS AND VERY VULGAR. THE ONLY POINT IS BECAUSE THE QUALITY OF THE BLU-RAY VERSION IS REALLY GOOD.Published on March 7, 2010 by Blas D. Pulgarvidal
