  1. Branagh shows us the comedy of a man who is too clever to understand that in the guise of dreading fatherhood, he is really at war with how much he longs for it.
  2. That's a lot just to justify a cute title, but cuteness is the engine driving the slight, obvious but occasionally very funny film.

    This slight slice of L.A. life is distinguished by two fine, subtle performances. Redgrave is quietly heartbreaking-- Penn accomplishes the daunting task of revealing the spine beneath Melanie's sweet-natured tolerance of her perpetually disagreeable husband.

    While the direction is a little anonymous and could use some verve, the comedy-drama gets by thanks to a solid script, witty dialogue and engaging performances.
  5. 40
    A movie with a lot on its plate, but nothing interesting on its mind.
  6. 40
    Fact is, there is nothing feloniously awful about the whole thing, but the laughs are tepid and too infrequent.

    Next to this, even "Mean Machine's" painless soft-tissue spikings and fast-fixing broken limbs are believable -- and way funnier.
