efficientissima, direttiva, intelligente, j.c. wiatt lavora settanta ore alla settimana in una importante societa' di new york. lmprovvisamente, come unica parente di un lontano cugino morto in un incidente, le viene affidata una bambina di poco piu' di un anno, elizabeth, mollata nelle sue braccia da una sbrigativa assistente sociale. allo sgomento di j.c. si aggiunge quello di un suo collega, con il quale ogni tanto - tra memorandum e programmi di lavoro - si concede qualche rapidissimo svago. comincia ora una vita dura e affannosa, tra pannolini, biberon e gli assillanti problemi quotidiani in ufficio: la donna tenta di passare elizabeth in affidamento ad una coppia di provinciali, ma i due candidati non le ispirano alcuna fiducia; con le varie baby sitter le cose non procedono al meglio; inoltre un giovanissimo suo collaboratore tanto e' entrato nelle grazie dei capi da scavalcarla nella carriera. la societa' propone a j.c. di passare ad un settore piu' tranquillo (e meno brillante), dato che rendimento ed orari non sono piu' quelli di una volta. ma lei decide di lasciare il lavoro e l'amico (ormai insofferente della bambina), di comprare una villetta con giardino e frutteto nel vermont e di tenersi definitivamente l'adorabile bambina. il ritorno alla natura di per se' tonificante ha pero' anche i suoi svantaggi per lei abituata ad una vita frenetica, piena di contatti e iniziative. in piena crisi per una caduta viene aiutata da jeff cooper, un simpatico veterinario del quale diviene presto amica. intanto il frutteto comincia a rendere bene e, dopo aver fatto marmellate per la piccola e per qualche signora dei dintorni, ecco la grande idea: j.c. mette su la "country baby", una solida impresa di alimenti genuini destinati all'infanzia che presto vengono venduti nel vermont e in altri stati. dato questo successo, arriva alla intraprendente donna l'offerta della sua

3.0 out of 5 stars Faultless performance of Diane Keaton. 19 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
It is difficult to put a finger on the reason why this film works and is so entertaining - and the only factor I can put it down to is the faultless performance of Diane Keaton in a role in which she takes the persona which she created in "Annie Hall" a few stages further. It may also have something to do with the fact that it never really seems to attempt to take itself seriously, lapsing into pure modern-day fantasy after the initial shock in which high-powered yuppie executive Keaton "inherits" her late sister's baby daughter. Thereafter, everything falls so perfectly into place for Keaton - after quitting her job, she has sufficient funds to buy a huge Vermont estate - she falls in love with the only under-50 man who appears to live in her community and who also happens to have an affinity for the child - she founds a cottage business which becomes a multi-million dollar concern during the course of only a few months. The impression which the picture gives you at the outset that it was to deliver some profound message about the role of women and motherhood in modern society is never fulfilled, simply because the fantasy takes over so completely from what one had assumed to be a story to be based in the real world, and the attempt at moralising at the end falls flat on its face in the light of all that has happened before. But perhaps, this is expecting too much from the picture - if it had dealt with reality, it wouldn't have been half as entertaining and wouldn't have given free rein to all of Keaton's acting talents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth a Look 28 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I adore this movie, not only is it a Diane Keaton movie, which guarantees a leading actress with flare, charisma and talent, but there is also the endearing Elizabeth, the baby who ends up on Keaton's doorstep. This movie is worth seeing just for the scene where Elizabeth gets a cold and Keaton has to take a valium just to take the baby's temperature!
This movie shows that women can have it all, not just one choice or the other, even if it means changing house, state and men to get it.
This film is well worth seeing just for the final scene, it always makes me cry, Elizabeth turns to Keaton and says her first word, "Mama", it gets me every time....

5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite Film of All Time 9 Aug 2002
By Elly
Format:DVD
This film is my absoulute favourite. I have watched it so many times I know all the words - sad, I know. It's definately a film for anyone who likes a bit of sentimentality and cheese and is watchable repeatedly, so worth getting on DVD. Probably a girls film really.
The story is about the savvy buisiness woman (Diane Keaton) who inherits a distant relatives baby and has to change her life to accomodate her. It's got a cheezy happy ending which always cheers me up!
Also stars Sam Shepard (Pelican Brief), Harold Ramis (Spengler - Ghostbusters), James Spader (Stargate), Pat Hingle (Commisioner Gordon - Batman) and Sam Wanamaker.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Movie But 20 Jan 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The picture of the dvd says it all- Foggy- I have never had such a poor dvd you would have thought it was some cheap copy though it looks to have all the right markings of an original.

Dont know why it would be that way it is a very good light hearted movie but not through fog.

Arrived new, the quality was perfect but more importantly, my father can delete the film off the dvd device that was taking up space. I have lost count how many times my mother watches this film while ironing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a Gem 24 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favourite films of all time, about a hard headed business woman, J. C. Wiatt, who suddenly has her whole world turned upside down by the unexpected arrival of a baby.

When J.C. inherits something in a will from a distant relative, the last thing she's expecting it to be is a baby. Once she has got over the shock, she decides to put the baby up for adoption, much to the relief of her live in boyfriend. But while he is away, she bonds with the child and is unable to give her up.
Her partner cannot tolerate a young child in his life, so they break up. However, J. C. finds it hard being able to juggle a demanding career, with the responsibility of bringing up a child and her work begins to suffer. It doesn't help that she has an ambitious co worker after her job, and in the end he succeeds, leaving J.C. with no choice but to resign from her position.

Then begins the second part of the film which is totally different from the first, where J.C. leaves New York and moves to Vermont. She starts her own business selling baby food and meets a man, a country vet and settles in to a new calmer sort of life.

Then an opportunity comes along that gives J.C. the chance to return to New York, a success. Now she has a hard decision to make. Will she make the right one?
Although this film was made in the eighties, it stands the test of time and is still a gem.
