The comic tone of this Australian feature is implicit in its English-language title, The Stork Said Yes. Based on a popular play by Carlos Liopis, the film stars South American stage and film favorite Lola Membrives. Though a bit long in tooth to be convincing as an expectant mother, Lola carries off her assignment with verve. There's nothing new or innovational in the plot, simply the usual collection of pregnancy jokes, but it is tried and true material and comes off quite well. In fact, many Argentines were of the opinion that the film version of The Stork Said Yes was even funnier than the stage original.
