Diane Keaton (J.C. Wiatt), Harold Ramis (Steven Buchner), Sam
Wanamaker (Fritz Curtis), James Spader (Ken Arrenberg), Sam Shepard (Dr. Jeff Cooper), Pat Hingle (Hughes Larrabee)
Diane Keaton plays a career-minded executive whose life
becomes overthrown in turmoil when she acquires a small baby (not hers).
An enjoyable yuppie 80's comedy which seems like a spin on the
same year's incredibly successful Three Men & A Baby. It's not a bad film at all, but it's not very memorable and hasn't dated particularly well. Diane Keaton is fine in the lead, but it
would have been a welcome addition if she had a better screenplay to work with.
