Movie Review: Baby Mama

First off: supported our local theater and went to Six Forks Station. What is nice about supporting a smaller theater? Less people...okay, not nice for business, but a better 'movie class' of people. Most, and this was not crowded at the 12:45 PM showing, were older people...and I mean, older than me. So no worries of anyone's cell phone ringing and being answered, or tweenies giggling in the back. It was a movie house dream.

CJ summed it up best when she said: Oh I love this place! I went here for field trips (during summer camps) and I like that it's small. I can leave the movie and get more coke if I need to.

Bigger isn't always better...well, it IS but in this case, it's not.

Now to the movie...I LOVED IT. It was hilarious beyond my expectation. Tim and I love Amy Poehler and Tina Fey -- big fans of theirs. Two of the funniest women in the 'biz'.

It was clean enough (for us) for CJ and Mi-Mi to watch, although CJ is old enough to kind of 'get it' more than Mi-Mi. But the antics are funny without being crass, as most of the SNL movie spins can become. Just a good-hearted, funny-as-hell, and a sweetness to it that made this movie my favorite of the year...and CJ's too.

And best of all? Women in the lead roles. I'm not a die-hard feminazi, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE when chicks come out with awesome movies like this.
