It's a great story and keeps you rapt with unpredictable chemistry between Lohan and male lead Luke Kirby while her lie spirals out of control at home and at work as she is unable to come clean and finds it necessary to expand her fake pregnancy bump. The movie is full of great supporting roles with the likes of Cheryl Hines, Chris Parnell, and a lot of familiar faces. Really enjoyed the soundtrack and overall it was a very pleasant deviation from your traditional romantic comedy. For anyone who's ever worked a crappy job you just couldn't afford to ditch like myself, it's really relatable in a fun way and keeps you laughing as it goes. Would be a great watch for the whole family.
Being a fan of Lindsay from The Parent Trap to Mean Girls, I was pleasantly surprised to find her just as on-point as ever, despite all the negative hype of her personal life lately. She certainly seems to find herself at home playing an adult role but keeping the lovable, fun quirkiness that we all fell in love with in the first place.
The acting is overall pretty decent. Lohan actually comes off well, not unbelievable good nor really annoying, but rather as a frustrated person stuck in a worthless job. I wasn't familiar with the other actors but they all came across as pretty believable and not too over the top (one of the things that can kill a movie like this is overly dramatic acting - see Management).
The movie does suffer from what I call the "1.5 hour problem" - it tries to cram so many relationships and a lot of plot twists within 90 minutes. Unfortunately, that seems to be the typical trend in Hollywood nowadays. Nonetheless, parts of the film, such as Lohan's relationship with Nick, seem a bit forced.
For some reason (possibly Lohan's trouble with the press), this movie slipped under the radar of most movie-goers, but it doesn't deserve to stay there. Certainly one of the better romantic comedies around.

Cute movie. If you love Lindsay for her acting then most likely you will enjoy this movie. In her repertoire I would say Labor Pains is a B.Published 5 months ago by Fuschia Eastwood
