"Baby on Board" stars Heather Graham and Jerry O'Connell as Angela and Curtis, who have a loving relationship, a comfortable home, and successful careers. When Angela announces she's pregnant, however, their lives turn into a nine-month comedy of errors in which each suspects the other of cheating. Now, they must contend with both emotional and hormonal mood swings, as well as the unanticipated drama caused by their friends Danny (John Corbett) and Sylvie (Katie Finneran), who suddenly find their own marriage in peril. Through all this, Angela worries that her job is in jeopardy as she strives to please her demanding boss (Lara Flynn Boyle). 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.
