I rented this one for my wife and ended up watching it with her. This is normally not my kind of movie, but it turned out to be funny.Funny as hell! Yes, it's rated 'R' for a reason, so put the little kids to bed and enjoy the talents of Jerry O'Connell and Heather Graham and scene-stealer John Corbett.

"After work, housework, dinner and laundry I like to sit and watch mindless comedies. This movies takes mindless to a whole new level! I kept watching it to the end though, waiting for it to get better. It NEVER got better. Filled with bad gags and even worse acting (Heather Graham with her blank stares and a cosmetic surgery nightmare Lara Flynn Boyle who's puffy frozen face had ZERO animation...)this movie was a complete waste of time and money! Someone should have aborted this project at the get-go!!"
This movie makes me want to poke a pen in my ear to remove t

"A truely awful movie. So to the people that liked it - how much are the studio paying you to write the 5 star reviews? Pathetic."
Bad taste, not believable

"This movie seems like part of a trend among many recent romantic comedies to substitute vulgarity and silliness for true comedy. The plot twists were often unbelievable, even for a romantic comedy. At several points, people make out wildly in restaurants, jumping on top of each other and groping wildly (which I've frankly never seen in a public restaurant). After the first 5 minutes there was little change in the plot and the ending was an entirely predictable. Throughout the movie, I felt like the main characters were almost purposely miscommunicating simply because they had to propel the plot. Not worth your time - there are plenty of other romantic comedies about unexpected pregnancies."
Lack of Star Power, Tepid Jokes, Routine Sit Com Caliber

""Baby on Board" stars Heather Graham and Jerry O'Connell as Angela and Curtis, who have a loving relationship, a comfortable home, and successful careers. When Angela announces she's pregnant, however, their lives turn into a nine-month comedy of errors in which each suspects the other of cheating. Now, they must contend with both emotional and hormonal mood swings, as well as the unanticipated drama caused by their friends Danny (John Corbett) and Sylvie (Katie Finneran), who suddenly find their own marriage in peril. Through all this, Angela worries that her job is in jeopardy as she strives to please her demanding boss (Lara Flynn Boyle). Watching a movie like "Baby On Board," one really appreciates star power. Though the performers are all good and sometimes land the gags with good timing, it's tough to be engaged fully. O'Connell has the ability to play both the goofy fall guy and the romantic lead, yet here he's somewhere in the middle. Boyle scores points as the boss from hell, as she manages to elicit sympathy for what could have been a one-note performance. The Blu-ray edition is pretty bare bones, with only the bonus basics -- director commentary, trailer, and photo gallery."
An Unromantic Noncomedy

"(Note: It's hard to imagine that I could spoil this movie for anyone, but the list below does contain "spoilers")
BABY ON BOARD is the kind of unromantic noncomedy that is so bad that you will be tempted to press the pause button multiple times to wonder aloud to your partner, your cat, or (if viewing alone) your nearest houseplant:
1) After that dopey summation, why is everyone in the movie treating Jerry O'Connell like a really smart lawyer? 2) Is that really Lara Flynn Boyle? 3) Did any of these actors actually read the script? 4) Would any pregnant woman really stop strangers in the street to tell them she's not pregnant (when they don't care, and she knows she really is)? 5) Wouldn't it be great to see Heather Graham in a decent movie? 6) Isn't there a limit to the number lame/offensive/fart jokes you can put in a single movie? 7) If Jerry O'Connell really were a really smart lawyer, why, when wrongly accused of adultery, wouldn't he simply tell his wife she's wrong? 8)) Why would Heather Graham, when accused of carrying another man's baby, not simply tell her dim bulb/really smart lawyer husband he's wrong? 9) Can anyone really get away with going to work for nine months while keeping her pregnancy a secret? 10) I try not to write negative reviews, but shouldn't I warn people about this one?
Of course, some movies are so bad that you can enjoy them for their sheer awfulness. I can't even offer you that consolation about BABY ON BOARD."
