“My Baby’s Daddy”

Six dollars and seventy-five cents was wasted on the 86-minute, PG-13, so-called comedy “My Babys Daddy,” starring Anthony Anderson, Michael Imperioli, Eddie Griffin and Method Man, .

Set in local Philadelphia, three guys face the frightening job of fatherhood when they find out that their girlfriends are pregnant, coincidentally all at the same time. After being used to a life of freedoms, they must take responsibility and assist in the raising of their new babies.

If you enjoy slow moving, fairly stupid movies then look no further and go see “My Babys Daddy.” Just a word of advice; try to pick a comfortable seat because even though a movie is given four out of five stars, doesnt mean its any good. Research it a bit further before you waste money on this film.

“Big Fish”

Sure, it may be a little over two hours in that not-so-comfortable seat but director Tim Burton delivers an amazing tale, once again. Based on the bestseller by Daniel Wallace, the cast, including Ewan McGregor, Billy Crudup, Albert Finney, and Jessica Lange, takes us on a fanciful journey.

Throughout the film, details of a man’s life are revealed as he faces death. A distant and doubting son is shown the true meaning of life and the importance of its stories.

Big Fish is an incredible and indescribable tale of love and imagination. If you enjoyed Burtons “Edward Scissorhands” and “A Nightmare before Christmas,” then “Big Fish” will hook ya and reel you in!

“Cheaper By The Dozen”

Although not the normal sort of comedy for Steve Martin, he carries out the remake of the 1950s film by Walter Lang, and leaves the audience laughing and thankful that they don’t have 12 kids.

If the all-star cast, including Martin, Bonnie Hunt, Hillary Duff, Piper Perabo, and Ashton Kutcher doesn’t sell the movie, the story will.

Martin, who plays a small town football coach, is offered a coaching position for a Division I school. He accepts the position and picks up and moves his wife (Hunt) and12 children. Plans don’t go as expected when his wife, an extraordinary homemaker, gets word that her book, about raising 12 children, is being published. Martin is left to fill the shoes of mom, when Hunt leaves to promote her new book.

The movie picks up quickly when Martin must bring his team to his home to practice. He soon finds that an ample amount of time can be devoted to each the team and his family. After realizing the more important of the two, he makes another big move.

This comedy is one that can be enjoyed by the entire family whether, it’s a few or a dozen.
