Baby Mama comes out this weekend and I think I’m more attracted to the talent in the movie than I am to the unfortunate title and premise.

Or maybe I’m just attracted to Tina Fey.

But you know what I’m saying. Tiny Fey is funny. Amy Poehler is funny. They were funny together when they did Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live. This should be a good thing, right?

And then there are all those cameos! Steve Martin and Sigourney Weaver. I like both of them tons! I should be excited for this movie!

…shouldn’t I?

But I’m not and I can’t put my finger on it. I think it’s just too much premise for one movie. 30-something career woman waits to long to have a baby, so she hires an immature surrogate to carry one to term. Wacky hi-jinks ensue. It’s like Baby Boom or Three Men and a Baby or She’s Having A Baby or any number of 80’s comedies that tried to mine comedy out of working professionals trying to have it all. I know we’re a generation removed from those films now, but do we really need to revisit them. Why not remake Weekend at Bernie’s while we’re at it?

I’m remiss to slander the film too much considering the pedigree of comedic talent. I’m completely hooked on 30 Rock and I think Poehler is probably the most reliable and versatile cast member currently on SNL. Plus there’s the whole idea that I haven’t even SEEN the film yet. But has that stopped me before?

Let’s just say I’ll be willing to look the other way if the movie turns out to be a dud.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for some diversion to pass the time, check out the movie’s web site at They have a bunch of clips from 30 Rock and SNL and the typical movie background information.

The marketers behind the movie also created a fun photo morph site at It plays kind of like Late Nite with Conan O’Brien’s classic “If They Mated…” sketch where you can combine two photos and see what the genetic result might look like.

For laughs, I tried combining my photo and Cami’s. The result was pretty terrifying…

Oh, well. Go to the site and try it yourself. If you don’t have a love one to repulse with a morphed photos, there are pictures of the cast you can merge your image with. Good luck!

That about does it for me. Have a great Wednesday everyone!

So we're going to see Baby Mama...

Wow! How did you talk Tom into that?

I didn't. It was his idea, believe it or not.

He has a total crush on Tina Fey. Slap on a pair of cat-eye glasses and a wry sense of humor and he's putty in your hands.

Now that I think about it, that gives me an idea of my own.

HEY, THERE HELPER MONKEY! Finish taking out that trash and I'll throw on a cardigan sweater!
