My Thoughts:
This is one of the handful of '70s movie I just recently got in the Too Cool for School boxset. Being from Mill Creek Entertainment and the fact that the fit 12 movies on 3 discs I really wasn't expecting much quality wise from this set. But if I can go by this movies I will be pleasantly surprised. As this one has very good audio and video quality... I'm impressed.  This is one of the many in that set I never seen before. So what do I say about the movie itself? Hmmmm... the story is almost non-existent. It is basically no more then a bunch of kids getting out of school for the summer... and following their partying and goofing around. It has plenty of... I don't want to say pointless because come on... is there such a thing as pointless nudity? But there is there is lots of bare boobs with a scene or two of bare butts thrown in for good measures. I got to admit... I did like the dog on the beach that was trained to pull the bikini tops off the sunbathing girls. I know I am focusing quite a bit on the nudity in this movie... but as I discovered... it is pretty much a must in a movie like this. As without it... you wouldn't have that much of a movie left. There is a couple chuckles here and there... but nothing all that great comedy wise. This is definitely a movie that is geared more towards the "horny teenager" then it is for someone that is looking for a thought provoking story. But for what it is... it is not bad... but could have been better.

Baby Mama, a review by Critter


Baby Mama



Year: 2008

Director: Micheal McCullers

Cast: Tina Fey, Sigourney Weaver, Steve Martin, Holland Taylor, Amy Poehler, Greg Kinnear

Plot: A successful, single businesswoman who dreams of having a baby discovers she is infertile and hires a working class woman to be her unlikely surrogate.

My Thoughts: I found this film to be a very enjoyable, light-hearted comedy that I can see myself watching time and time again. Being a fan of Tina Fey from her 30 Rock and Mean Girls fame I was thrilled to see her teamed up in a film with Poehler. I feel that Fey and Poohler have a great, on screen comedic chemistry which has been displayed throughout many seasons of SNL. While the plot wasn't exactly deep or moving on any levels, which of course I didn't expect it to be, I still found the film very entertaining with quite a few laugh out loud moments. While the two lead women were fantastic I was delightfully surpised with the performances of Steve Martin and Sigourney Weaver who both portrayed interesting, and somewhat eccentric characters. I especially enjoyed seeing Weaver in such a light-hearted role in a comedy as I have been a fan of her from the Aliens franchise for a long time and love seeing her in something other than sci-fi. Overall this was a fun film with plenty of laughs that was definatly carried well by the great cast.

Stars:Extras:

My Thoughts:
I just finished season 4... the last season that was given to me for Christmas to watch. Though I do have the next season already ordered to look forward to. Needless to say... I am still hooked on the series. The set is filled with good episodes... but even so... it was once again rather easy for me to pick a favorite episode. As they brought back the character of Mr. Yang from the previous season's finale for this season's finale. Letting us know that Mr. Yang had a partner that is still out there.... a Mr. Yin! And looking ahead to season five I see they are brought back for that season finale as well. Something more to look forward to as these episodes are arguably the best episodes of the entire series.
