User Review

A funny movie with a very good message

Rating: 8/10

After watching the trailer for My Baby's Daddy, I thought it would be an interesting movie to watch. After seeing the reviews I looked the other way and my expectations for this movie dropped. All I have to say is do not let the reviews turn you away from this movie. This movie has an amazing way of delivering comedy and morals at the same time. Sure it is unlikely that three best friends will all get their girlfriends pregnant at the same time, but it was still well put together.

One of the drawbacks to this movie was its predictability. But what movie these days isnt? It delivered laughs like the previews promised, and it delivered hope. It shows us confidence, how to stand up for yourself. It shows us to take a step up in life and take charge. It shows us that change is good. Even though you dont want to go through it, sometimes you have to. And most importantly it shows us to do the right thing...for yourself, and the people you love. Overall this movie is well worth watching. Granted I would not go out and see it again, but I sure am glad I got to watch it, and if I had the choice to go back and do it again, I would. ***
