Though Baby Momma was terribly clichéd and predictable, it’s futile to resist the brilliant chemistry of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. But while the movie had some genuinely funny moments, Tina and Amy’s characters were undeniably stereotypical and rather bland for two such gifted comedians. Fey sets the bar so high on a weekly basis with 30 Rock, anything less can’t help but disappoint.
I was, however, pleasantly surprised by talented supporting actors appearing in the film such as Greg Kinnear, Steve Martin, and Sigourney Weaver. Lots of SNL players showed up as well, but that’s probably to be expected.
All in all, the movie wasn’t terrible, but I expected much more originality from Poehler and Fey and didn’t see anything in Baby Momma that I haven’t seen before.
