For crude and sexual humor, language and a drug reference
Single and successful, Kate (Fey) is the youngest vice president her company has ever had. Kate has long put her career ahead of a personal life, but now she is ready to start a family. Because of her advancing maternal years and deformed uterus, Kate is told that she has a one-in-a-million chance of conceiving a child. But Kate didn't get where she is in life by lying idly by waiting for solutions, instead she decides to hire a surrogate to carry her child for her. When Angie (Poehler), Kate's Baby Mama, shows up on her doorstep with no place to live, a comedy of errors ensues when highly structured Kate attempts to turn the free-spirited Angie into a perfect expectant mother.

Noticeably heavy compression artifacts and soft sharpness can damage the anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD. Black levels are elevated, and shadows generally look flat. There are scenes, however, where near-black shadows are rendered well. Fleshtones have a pink hue, and the picture is generally too bright. Colors are fairly well balanced, though. Compression artifacts can be recognized on occasion, and while edge enhancement is subtle, it is noticeable on high-contrast transitions. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #72 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love to read WSR because of the straightforward, professional equipment reviews. I also LOVE the DVD reviews. As a home theatre fanatic, I want to know the technical and quality aspects of my future purchase/rental DVDs with just a brief synopsis of what the movie is about. Other home theatre publications spend way too much space reviewing the movie itself. I will make my own judgments on the merits of the movie, what I want from my magazine is some insight on how the DVD will sound and look on my system. WSR gives the reader just that. GREAT mag! Keep up the good work!
