This is John Hughes at his best, mixing post-teen angst with parenthood. Anyone who has ever had kids could not fail to cry in the final scenes. It is a superb blend of the surreal (dancing with lawnmowers) and the very real (tight trousers causing infertility). It should of been a massive hit when it came out but somehow passed people by, and is now mentioned in a wispered hush. It's amazing how many people don't know they've seen this film until they are reminded of certain scenes. It is always remembered with fondness. An absolute classic.

I too remember this film with fondness, mainly because it wasn't like a lot of the teen angst films of its time. I recall the soundtrack the most, which is very hard to get hold of. Kate Bush puts in an excellent track called "This Woman's Work" which still has me in floods of tears. I also think "Apron Strings" by Everything But The Girl is an example of an exceptional modern lullaby. This should have been a hit film in its day but it seems to have passed people by. You really grow to care about the main characters in this film and John Hughes successfully delivers a contemporary family comedy full of all the right pathos and the sensitivies of young parents / couples during a time of affluence. I think a lot of teenagers should be shown this film during sex education classes because it does teach the value of fidelity to a certain extent...well, end of sermon...but definitely a modern classic.

Some films simply entertain you: They make you laugh, or cry perhaps, then they're gone. Others have a more profound effect - they make you think,and in this small way, they make a difference to life.
Presenting a slightly more adult theme from the master of teenage angst John Hughes, This under-rated comedy about love, friendship, single-living, parenthood and the conflicts that they all have on each other manages to do the latter whilst subtely and cleverly disguising itself in the former.
Stylish for it's time in the eighties, It looks a little dated in places now. The ending tries too hard to tug at the heartstrings, but the story and brilliant narrative still make it an excellent piece of work.
I look forward (perhaps in vain) to a region 2 DVD release, following the recent stateside DVD transition.

Ahhh...it's the eighties, it's John Hughes and it's sentimental; a great combo. A modern and sometimes surreal fairytale (a lawn mowing musical number? I kid you not) that is utterly charming. Look out for a really strong performance from Alec Baldwin, wonderful Elizabeth McGovern and dependable Bacon.

I really like this film but I don't think it will appeal to the masses. It is about the relationship between husband and wife. Husband wonders if he is missing out on life and goes in to a panic when wife tells him she is pregnant. Everything works out okay as you would imagine. It is a lovely story, I just wish they could have cut out the awful parts where they play some dross music as he has various panic attacks/the neighbourhood husbands mow their lawns in unison like some demented gardeners. All that just ruins the film for me. What is touching is the scene in the hospital where Jefferson is crying, wondering what is happening to his wife and baby, looking back at all the precious moments in his married life, to the tune of Kate Bush' This Woman's Work. It jut breaks your heart, and I can not watch it without shedding some tears. Worth a watch. Not for everyone.

As I am flipping through the cable channels this evening, I came upon a film that I have always really liked and to this day find it hard to understand how it did not become a major hit during it's initial release. The film is "She's Having A Baby" and it is playing on my tv now (c/o AMC) and as it was the first time I saw it back in the late 80's, it is fun to watch, creative, has a good soundtrack and an excellent cast. It is nice to see the film getting some air play on the small screen and hopefully this will present the opportunity of it gaining additional exposure to a new generation of potential fans. To anyone that has not seen this film, if you enjoy well constructed light comedy (i.e.,"Six Days/Seven Nights") this could be a movie for you. The flashback sequence with Kate Bush's song "This Womans Work" alone is worth the time spent watching the film. This is a good natured, feel good, enjoyable film and is well worth 120 minutes of your time.
