In The Wedding Pact 2: The Baby Pact, the unlikely "wedding pact" that brought Elizabeth and her husband together was implausible enough. The baby pact of this title isn't even a pact, a fact that sets the confused, slow, boring, and incompetent tone going forward. Why does no one describe how the young husband died? What's the big secret? Who would ever hire a lawyer (Connor Trinneer) who offers his unsolicited services in a coffee shop without vetting him first? How come the friend who goes to Lamaze classes with Elizabeth only shows up after the birth? Why does the judge (Kevin P. Farley) talk to a hand puppet while conducting a potentially life-changing hearing? And did no one edit this movie and catch several major gaffes, including the lawyer who argues that granting custody of a baby to the mother-in-law would be in the "best interest of the court." The court? A minute later, opposing counsel pretends to be quoting but changes the remark entirely as "the best interest of the child."

A woman has a long talk with her dead father played by Richard Riehle, and that actor, playing a dead guy, gives the only competent performance in the film. Two people we've never seen before show up in the hospital room after the birth. Who are they? Even if they were characters in the earlier film, they still need to be introduced here. If there are teens anywhere on earth who might express interest in this, they would do far better exploring films that reflect at least some semblance of the way human beings behave in actual life.
