Underrated John Hughes comedy; fine chemistry between Bacon & McGovern
SHE’S HAVING A BABY (1988) *** Kevin Bacon, Elizabeth Mc Govern, Alec Baldwin, William Windom, Cathryn Damon, John Ashton, Edie McClurg, Dennis Dugan. Frequently accurate domestic comedy about newlyweds Bacon and McGovern who finally decide to procreate amidst the usual barriers including family and money. Smart script and direction by John Hughes with a sharp turn of events by the film’s climax with an effectively dramatic birth sequence; I got misty eyed for Bacon and the plight of his newborn accentuated by the song “This Woman’s Work” by Kate Bush. Wait for the credits with some celebrities coming up with names for the baby.
I Appreciate the Subject Matter
If you got married and had at least one kid, you’ll appreciate this movie a lot.
1. There’s nothing to brag about in the acting, though Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth McGovern do a nice job. 2. The script is just okay, and holds back what could have been a much better film.
1. There are so few movies that focus on marriage, getting married, having a baby, living with your kids, or even a gut-wrenching divorce. I appreciate when a filmmaker takes on these subjects, which touch a lot of the population, but rarely are addressed in film. They are powerful subjects to which many, many people relate. However, the lion’s share of films deal with meeting somebody and getting together–at most going to a proposal–but they don’t deal with anything that follows that. This movie covers what follows, and anyone who has been through it can relate to the various issues through which you go in a normal relationship like this. 2. The labor and delivery segment of the film was pretty well done, and I enjoyed it a lot.
Watch this movie, since there are so few movies that deal with the subject matter.
The movie “Marley and Me” (Owen Wilson & Jennifer Aniston) actually deals with all these things much better, with better acting and a better script. I know, that’s a dog movie, but it’s really not – it’s really a movie about getting married, beginning careers, living as a married couple, and having kids. Other good movies in this category are “The War of the Roses” (Michael Douglas & Kathleen Turner), “Price Check” (Eric Mabius & Parker Posey), Regarding Henry” (Harrison Ford & Annette Benning), and “The Story of Us” (Bruce Willis & Michelle Pfeiffer).
