Review by Jason Clark

A key example of crudeness on an unendurable level -- even for a Hollywood production -- this shrill, laborious farce takes a talented cast and turns them into irritating puppets prey to director Chris Columbus' strident guidance. Hugh Grant is particularly unappealing, mostly because the director never capitalizes on his comedic gifts, instead opting to let him mug his way through every scene, a device that grows wearying for the viewer and doesn't inspire much sympathy for an already unevenly concocted character. Julianne Moore's loveliness helps, but she is also saddled with a cliched role; only Robin Williams scores in a very small role as a Russian obstetrician, which turns out to be too little too late. There's not much here that's new in its depiction of pregnancy and relationships, and far too much that's simply old hat. The film is based on the popular French film Neuf Mois, released only a year before this weak remake.
