Editorial Reviews

An aspiring writer faces up to the responsibilities of marriage and family in this romantic comedy from writer director and producer John Hughes. Despite the misgivings he pours out to best friend Davis McDonald (Alec Baldwin) Jake Briggs (Kevin Bacon) marries high-school sweetheart Kristy (Elizabeth McGovern). After an abortive attempt at graduate school in New Mexico the couple settle in suburban Chicago. Jake fakes his way into a job as an advertising copywriter while Kristy settles into her own corporate job. The couple face the typical ups and downs of any new marriage especially after Davis visits with a bimbo on his arm regaling his pal Jake with tales of the good life. A few years later Kristy decides to stop taking her birth-control pills and tells Jake about it three months later. Plagued by doubts unfulfilled ambitions and images of a fantasy girl (Isabel Lorca) he once spotted in a club Jake resists the idea of fatherhood. Then he finds out he has low sperm count and his manhood thus challenged lines up for fertility clinic-assisted stud duty. The birth doesn't go as smoothly as Jake expected however setting the stage for climactic realizations. Edie McClurg who played the nosy school secretary in Hughes' Ferris Bueller's Day Off makes a cameo appearance as an officious neighbor. In addition a who's who of other Hughes alums and Hollywood stars lend their faces and voices to a series of closing-credits shots in which each suggests a name for the titular baby.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: COMEDY/ROMANTIC COMEDY Rating: PG-13 UPC: 097361380940 Manufacturer No: 138094

Format: DVD
She's Having A Baby has always been a favorite movie of mine. Alas, I didn't see it in theaters but got it on video and wore my copy out from repeat viewings. Finally the DVD has arrived, but with the exception of a trailer there's nothing as far as Special Features, which is pretty disappointing. The film is letterboxed to it's proper 1.85:1 aspect ratio and looks just great. The sound is also good. Would've liked a John Hughes audio commentary like the one he did for the Ferris Bueller's Day Off DVD, but no such luck.
As for the movie itself, I think it's wonderful. A sweet and honest interpretation of growing up into adulthood and living with the decisions that you make. Since Kevin Bacon plays a writer named Jefforson (Jake) Briggs, we get to view his imagination thru certain scenes when he's sort of daydreaming, that come across very comically (like the lawnmower ballet). My favorite is when Kristi (Elizabeth McGovern) tells him "I stopped taking the pill three months ago", to which he sits up and starts screaming, imagining himself on a fastmoving traincar in a straitjacket, crashing into a brick wall. If those visuals don't explain his anxiety I don't know what would. That's the fun of the movie.
Everyone's talking about the wonderful Soundtrack that is out of print. This is because it was owned by I.R.S. Records and they went out of business many years ago and no one has bothered to pick up the rights to reissue it. I feel lucky, since I bought it on cassette and CD back in the early 90s. But if you really want to find one I suggest you try an online auction house such as ebay. They always have copies of the soundtrack to sell.
I always feel cheated when I buy a Paramount DVD because they are so expensive and usually only have a trailer as a bonus.

This is the the sweetest, most touching romance movie that I personally have ever seen. Contained within this comedy-romance are some profound truths about men, women and relationships that I have never seen talked about in any other movie in such a dead-on way.
Christie's 3 or 4 sentence explination of why she won't cheat on her husband contains more truth than I have ever seen in a movie about why you don't cheat on your mate. Many marriages would not end in divorce if the people in them understood what Christy demonstrates in this film.
This is a movie which I feel does a near-perfect job of conveying what is really important in life. I think every married couple should see it. This video could be better marriage therapy than counseling. While there are a few corny jokes in the movie, they don't get in the way of what is really trying to be conveyed: That when you find that one special person, you hold on and never let go. That there is more satisfaction than many people imagine in an 'ordinary life,' and that true love really is worth it.
The most wonderful romance movie I have ever seen.

She's having a baby, is a story in which I find myself completely consumed. I can honestly say that it is the story, that I would compare my own life to. I could watch it over and over, and still cry at the end. I cry, because, like myself, kevin bacon seemed to feel trapped, by love. He wanted to be married, and he loved his wife, but he felt he was missing out on "life" outside the realm of marriage. In the end, he really was running from reality. The reality in which all of us have to face. We make our own decisions, but when it comes time to live out the decision we made, it isn't so easy. Fear kept him from happiness, at first, then he learned ,that what was most important to him, was the exact thing he feared. Commitment. We all are committed, in one way or another, commit yourself to whatever makes you the happiest, and don't let others dissuede you from your hearts desire. This movie is..The reality of MY life.I love it, the music was perfect for every scene.thank you...Sincerely,Donna Garbus3/13/01

Format: DVD
This film is told mostly from Kevin Bacon's (Jake)perspective through narration, a funny & pretty honest look at early married life. Many subtle jokes here, along with laugh out loud sight gags. It isn't just a comedy it works on different levels. Elizabeth McGovern(Cristy)is an attractive, yet reserved wife who is grounded, unlike her husband. Jake has questions..many questions, trying to figure out his life..and his wife. There is a genuine chemistry between them. Alec Baldwin is very good as Jake's bachelor friend. John Ashton is hilarious talking about garden hoses & lawnmowers! I am surprised so many people missed or skipped this film. The music ranges from Gene Loves Jezebel's "Desire" to Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work". The ending credit sequence has cameos from: Cast of Cheers & Ferris Bueller, Ally Sheedy, Magic Johnson & Dan Ackroyd.
The DVD: It is 16:9 Anamorphic Widescreen, with 5.1 Dolby sound. I would rank the picture quality a Solid 4 and the sound a 5. Unfortunatly no extras, a Trailer. (Would have loved to hear a Bacon/McGovern or John Hughes commentary!) If you are a fan, don't hesitate picking up this DVD.(Plastic Keepcase)
