Baby Boom
December 24th, 2006 | Back to Blog Listing
I am currently sitting on my couch on Christmas Eve, it's raining outside, freezing cold, and I've had a few glasses of wine. I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing atmosphere.

If you ever find yourself in a similar setting and this movie comes on TV, do NOTTTTTTTTT turn it on. Baby Boom is terrible.

I tried to sit through it, but have finally had to turn it off. I never thought a movie could add so much stress to my life, but apparently it can. As if the kid crying every few minutes isn't annoying enough, Keaton can never seem to shut the hell up either. If you're not annoyed by her screaming and/or having multiple breakdowns on screen, you'll most certainly be annoyed by her inability to multitask when presented with the obstacles of a child. She's supposed to be this big shot business woman in the 80's and yet, for some reason, can't seem to find a good nanny in all of NYC to take care of the damn kid. For god sakes, 3 men and a baby worked it out - she can too.

I won't begin to suggest this has been a very articulate posting, but I assure you, this movie is awfully irritating. I would strongly suggest staying clear of it.
