good bad movie night- "Baby on Board"



Heather Graham is super hot and a good actress, but she fell into a string a of bad films for a long time. "Baby on Board" is no exception. She plays a career woman who has it all. A husband (Jerry O'Connell), a gay assistant, a bitchy boss, an understanding sister who has the family that heather dreams of. Oh, the sister is married to Jon Corbett from S#x and/or the City.

Corbett is totally miscast as Jerry's wacky, drug taking, wive cheating, fast talking best friend. Basically the John Candy character from "Splash" that seems to be in every kooky comedy.

Anyhoo, Corbett talks Jerry into taking a number from a hot Asian chick at the gym. It's for a message, but she kissed the back of her business card. (The director made a point in the commentary that he was having trouble finding an Asian woman for that role. Does it have to have to be an Asian?)

Heather finds the card and thinks he's cheating. She doesn't accuse him. She just gets upset. Then tries to get him jealous. Now he thinks she's cheating. All they have to do is accuse each other.


Oh, she sees him making out with a woman at dinner. It turns out it was a grateful client. Still, that was cheating. Yikes. The kiss had to be long enough for Heather to see it. So it might be a grey area.

In fact she does accuse him of cheating and he just ignores it. She goes to her mom to find out how to handle the situation. Her mom's advice, ignore him. Corbett tells Jerry to do the same to her.

So they act like children the whole movie. Oh, she's pregnant the whole time. this movie wasn't fun to watch until.

Not a good bad movie. Not fun to watch. Watching the director's commentary is fun. That's all. no reason to get mean. Just not good.
