"Baba Mama" is co-penned by and starring "Mean Girls" writer, Tina Fey. The movie is about a successful 38-year-old female executive, desperate to have a child, but believing she waited too long and is infertile, resorts to a surrogate, who unbeknownst to her, has been poorly screened by an agency she paid a $100,000 fee.

Instead of a suitable applicant, she is sent a kooky, ill-tempered, crass, unsophisticated woman, who is the common law wife of a simpleton that emotionally abuses her, whilst engaging in affairs.

Fey's character, is a competent, corporate executive that works for an organic food company, headed by an aging hippie, who believes in irrational and zany concepts no one else understands, but him.

Fey, a meat eater, pretends to be a vegetarian to make her bizarre, tree-hugging-howling-at-the-moon boss happy.

This film expresses the concerns many career women face regarding childbearing. It also pokes fun at the new age movement and the unreasonable, irrational conduct that accompanies it. However, it is not exactly a family film or one I'd recommend, due to the vulgar surrogate couple.
