Product Description

Thea (Lindsay Lohan) is stuck in a dead-end job that she can't afford to lose. To stay employed, she fakes a pregnancy, and now she's milking her one big lie for everything it's worth. But faking this pregnancy is going to make giving birth look easy. Chris Parnell and Cheryl Hines also star in this hilarious comedy.

Amazon.com

Labor Pains stars Lindsay Lohan as much-abused secretary Thea Dixon, whose boss makes her clean his dog when it rolls in poop. On the brink of being fired, Thea makes a desperate claim: She’s pregnant! Fear of a lawsuit prevails and she keeps her job... but now she’s got to keep up her story. It’s a chore at first, but Thea soon discovers that pregnancy has its privileges; she ends up with a promotion and a fledgling romance--all threatened by the possible revelation of her deceit. Labor Pains has the kind of preposterous but plot-driving premise that might have made for a great screwball comedy in the 1940s. Unfortunately, the clumsy script fumbles every promising scene with obvious jokes and no sense of how to maintain the tricky balance of absurdity and genuine feeling that the story requires. The movie gets a boost from its bouncy soundtrack, Lohan’s likability (only a few years ago she was riding high from Freaky Friday and Mean Girls), and an enjoyable supporting turn from Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm) as Thea’s caustic co-conspirator in the secretarial pool. Janeane Garofalo has a cameo as a talk-show host. --Bret Fetzer

Whatever her press, Lindsey Lohan delivers a great performance in The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, Mean Girls, and now Labor Pains. This is a REALLY smart and funny film--well worth seeing and far better than the usual comedic maternity genre. Rest of cast is excellent, as well. Haven't heard of Lara Shapiro before, but i want to see anything else she's written or directed. Gold!

Lindsey L is not my favorite actress, but she really was quite hilarious in this well written and stylish film. I really enjoyed the story and really laughed at a number of scenes, especially the birthing class scene. The supporting cast is suburb and Cheryl Hines is particularly hilarious. Chris Parnell is very strong and the setting is true LA at its best. I particularly loved the sound track and story line. I am now a fan of Lindsey's and highly recommend this fun film for any group of expecting women looking for a laugh.

The problem here is that if you go in thinking this movie is going to be slapstick comedy, it's not. The comedy is very low key. Somebody mentioned the humor was like Working Girl which I agree. There are no belly laughs here. If you watch the movie with that mind set, it's an o.k. movie, but it seems more serious than funny. T.C.

I thought this had a really good and funny plot. Lindsay Lohan did an awesome job. Lohan stars as a secretary named Thea Clayhill who is about to be fired by her very stubborn boss. She is soon forced to lie and tell him she is pregnant. People start being nicer to her, and she is given a promotion. Will Thea ever reveal to her friends that she isn't 'with child'? I highly recommend LABOR PAINS!!!

I was given this as a gift and I had low expectations of this movie because of the drama surrounding LL's private (not so private life). Well this movie is much better than I thought it would be. The plotline is decent and I found myself routing for her character. It is a light comedy that works and is an easy watch and the movie movies along at quite a decent pace. To some it up do yourself a favour and give this movie a chance you will not regret it.

Lohan really pulls it off well in this fun, non-traditional romantic comedy. It's a smart, funny film that kept me completely and constantly entertained as it follows the story of an office secretary faking pregnancy in a desperate attempt to keep her awful but financially-necessary job.

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.

This film wasn't bad for a Lindsay Lohan movie. I was expecting to hate it, but I didn't - I even laughed a few times. Even though the plot is predictable, it has a few funny twists and turns. It doesn't just run on pregnancy jokes.

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.

Lindsay Lohan as Thea is at the top of her game in this feel good movie. Thea fakes a pregnancy in order to keep her job, but then her maternal instinct kicks-in! She starts hoarding baby paraphernalia and ultimately requires a full-blown "intervention" before she can kick her "pregnancy addiction" :)

Be sure to watch the entire movie because the last five minutes contains a surprise ending - a year or two in the future.

The Behind-the-Scenes is also interesting - it hints the movie was injected with a parody between Thea's pregnancy addiction versus LL's current challenges as a 20-something party girl:)

In one scene Thea is asked to go out for a drink with a co-worker after work. It's classic to see LL [I mean Thea] look up and say "Drink? I don't drink! I'm pregnant!!"
