“There are gags and scraps of action in Baby Mama (Universal, 4.25) that give the movie fits of buoyancy, and these tend to come not so much from the younger, eager performers as from the old hands. If you want to see scene-stealing turned into grand larceny, watch Sigourney Weaver, as the owner of the surrogacy service, or, better still, Steve Martin, as the presiding genius of Round Earth.
Tina Fey, Steve Martin
“Hand the guy a thick hank of ponytail, relieve him of the burden of a central role, aim him squarely at the bull√É¬¢√¢‚Äö¬¨√¢‚Äû¬¢s-eye of eco-smugness (‘I√É¬¢√¢‚Äö¬¨√¢‚Äû¬¢ve toasted pine nuts on the edge of an active volcano’), and you find him happier onscreen than I have seen him in years. Who cares whose baby is inside which mother, when the laughs come from the grown man doing business with his inner child?” — from Anthony Lane‘s 4.28 New Yorker review.
