"Labor Pains is a fun, entertaining comedy with a bit of drama thrown in for good measure. Lindsay Lohan stars as Thea, a beleaguered secretary at a military publishing house. To be honest, I wasn't expecting to enjoy this film as much as I did, considering Lindsay Lohan has had such negative press lately. But the story is well told, Lohan is very likable, and her comedic abilities are put to good use. Other cast members round out the film well: Cheryl Hines from Curbed Your Enthusiasm, plays Thea's best friend at work; Chris Parnell Dr Spaceman from 30 Rock, plays Thea's mean boss, Kevin Covais from American Idol fame is an office intern, Jeneane Garofalo is a talk show host, and Creed Bratton from The Office plays an author at the military publishing house where Thea works. The film seems to be a bit of a hybrid--a combination of a bigger budget studio-style romantic comedy, and a lower budget indie-style, quirky comedy, where things unfold on a smaller scale. This is an appealing combo, as the film had charm and heart, while the story kept me amused and entertained."

"Whatever her press, Lindsey Lohan delivers a great performance in The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, Mean Girls, and now Labor Pains. This is a REALLY smart and funny film--well worth seeing and far better than the usual comedic maternity genre. Rest of cast is excellent, as well. Haven't heard of Lara Shapiro before, but i want to see anything else she's written or directed. Gold!"
Labor Pains is a Hoot!

"Lindsey L is not my favorite actress, but she really was quite hilarious in this well written and stylish film. I really enjoyed the story and really laughed at a number of scenes, especially the birthing class scene. The supporting cast is suburb and Cheryl Hines is particularly hilarious. Chris Parnell is very strong and the setting is true LA at its best. I particularly loved the sound track and story line. I am now a fan of Lindsey's and highly recommend this fun film for any group of expecting women looking for a laugh."
