Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The film addresses a pertinent issue for contemporary women - how does a woman balance her desire to have a family and career - while her biological clock is ticking away. We follow the dilemma of Gena (Victoria Foyt in her critically acclaimed debut) as she careens between her 'safe but secure' yuppie boyfriend James (Matt Salinger) and her reawakened feelings toward a dynamic but dangerous old flame Anthony (Eric Roberts) who suddenly re-enters her life with a most surprising proposition. Gena attends a co-workers baby shower, where we meet a diverse group of women in their 30's and 40's who share with us the complex feelings about having a baby in the 90's. Often hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, BABYFEVER is, in the words of one critic" 'A Must See For Every Woman And Every Man!'

Having recently discovered Jaglom's films, particularly Eating, and Last Summer in the Hamptons which featured the charming Melanie Mayron look-alike Victoria Foyt (and Jaglom's wife), I was curious about this title. However the extreme reactions of the existing reviews gave me caution. The format is similar to Eating, where straight to camera interviews are intercut with a narrative. Jaglom's strength is in presenting cinema verite conversations between actors, but since he takes nearly an hour to begin the baby shower that the cast assemble for, we have to endure Foyt with Matt Salinger. These scenes feel improvised to the miniscule degree and Foyt overplays her discomfort, especially when she barks to release tension. Her energy in general here seems lower than it was in Hamptons, and soon her anguish over Salinger and whether or not she is pregant to him becomes tiresome. There is an unnecessary diversion with Zack Norman as the husband of the shower hostess, Norman being the least talented of the Jaglom/Emil/Norman triumvirate. Thankfully Eric Roberts turns up for one scene (odd casting even for Jaglom) as a past suitor and brings some edge. However things pick up for the shower when the film populates. Jaglom amusingly shows us a wall of cascading water to coincide with the confirmed pregnant women, though surprisingly the one with a born child is removed quickly. Foyt is better when she has scenes with the deep-voiced Dinah Henney, and scores a laugh when the aforementioned baby reacts badly to her. I liked Henney's line referring to Salinger, that you can't marry someone who deals in golf metaphors.Read more ›

My wife and I rented this and both of us hated this movie. Hate isn't even a strong enough word! We despise this movie, we abhor this movie. It HAS to be one of the WORST films I've ever seen in my life. It's like a bad high school production of a bad movie. The acting's bad, the script's poor, the cinematography stinks, and there's NO background music/film score except for a few cheesy montages. I wouldn't watch this again if I was paid for my time.

Gena is an average woman who is torn between her current boyfriend's desire to marry her and start a family, and the unexpected arrival of an old boyfriend wanting to pick up where they left off. To further complicate matters, she might be pregnant herself. In the mist of this unsettled personal life, Gena leaves her two men to attend a baby shower party for a girl friend and talks with the various female attendees all of whom are facing their own ticking biological clocks.

Like all of Henry Jaglom's films, this one is nearly all dialogue. What action exists is rather stilted. Some of the same character actors who've appeared in films from the 70s and 80s appear. This is an entertaining film about 30 something women who develop baby fever. Having been there, done that, I can testify to its acute accuracy.
