Very funny!

Absolutely hilarious film!

Love it!!! This is one of my favorite feel good movies when I need a good laugh. It's uplifting, fun and could teach someone a thing or two about babies, pregnancy and even surrogacy! I love Tina Fey and her character rocks (I'm into health foods too, so I can relate with her sometimes crazy health-food ideas). I also really liked Amy Poehler's character, she's sassy & witty with an absolutely hilarious personality. Can't forget Sigourney Weaver who's also very funny (playing a woman who's clearly passed the age of having babies - she has twins!), Steve Martin the CEO of a company Kate works for gives a refreshing performance...and last but not least my favorite Greg Kinnear! I found him very attractive in this movie! All in all, hilarious movie teens will love, adults will like (even men!). Some minor language, some kissing and a couple "dirty words" played nicely, drinking hard liquor (by a woman who's pretending to be pregnant). Highly recommended for 14 and up!!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
