Lindsay Lohan stars in this comedy as Thea Clayhill, a secretary whose position at a publishing firm run by tyrannical boss Jerry Steinwald (Chris Parnell) is under threat. To safeguard her job she comes up with the novel solution of faking a pregnancy, a plan that works beautifully with the help of a pillow and her best friend Lisa (Cheryl Hines). When the boss leaves town on a business trip, his cute younger brother Nick (Luke Kirby) takes over the firm, and Thea not only gets promoted into the newly created parenting division, but soon becomes romantically involved with her gorgeous new boss. Being 'pregnant' seems to have solved all her problems - but any gestation period must eventually come to an end...

Okay, so this is more along the lines of Just My Luck, Get A Clue and Herbie Fully Loaded (all Lohan vehicles) but, hey, why change your style if it works, Hugh Grant hasn't!
I only hope that Lindsay Lohan continues to make films like this and, one day, banishes the bad image she has been labelled with, she is underrated and deserves a second chance, doesn't everyone?
If you have ever considered faking pregnancy then watch this as it might make you think twice, or maybe not!
The story here is as I mentioned, predictable, from start to finish; well written but absolutely definable with all the usual rom-com suspects. What I found to be a refreshing take on this story is that for ONCE although being mainly an office based story, it doesn't take place in a high-rise building in a flashy open plan office with unbelievably good looking people in every spot; here we have the main character Thea working as a low-pay secretary in a rather low-key shoddy (need I say realistic?) publishing house with an office window view of the parking area! Even the scenes of Thea's apartment are of a rather mediocre "white" apartment with limited space and no flashy furnishings (how refreshing, as most films these days have us believing anyone in the US can afford a giant loft, the entire Ikea furniture range and a bathroom the size of a double bedroom. Bravo for realism here! Even the male lead isn't ridiculously good-looking but more of a "average joe" type.
Even if you're not a Lohan fan, try this movie out, it's good for a giggle or two and predictability is reassuring, it gives you exactly what you're looking for in a romantic comedy, what else can you ask for?
The Story: A meagre secretary called Thea is struggling to make rent, struggling to support her seventeen year old sister, and struggling even more so to keep her job at a small publishing house. When Thea accidentally gets on her boss's bad side and is threatened with unemployment, she makes up a lie that she knows will prevent her from being fired...that she's four months pregnant. At first, she sees this as only a temporary solution to her problem and that she can somehow make the whole thing blow over, but soon she discovers that being pregnant has its perks and that as a "pregnant woman" her life isn't as unbearable as it once had been. The lingering question is...how long can she keep the charade up...and is she really only fooling everyone at work...or is she just fooling herself?
I won't give a summary of the movie as I have a bad bad bad habit of spoiling the plot for people who have not seen the movie I'm describing. So in order to not mess thing up for everyone I will just say that it is a sweet funny movie that would be a good choice for an evening in by yourself or with your friends.
Lindsay Lohan puts in a great performance as Thea which is a step in the right direction for her and shows shes still a tallented but underrated actress :P
