    Very little here feels original or even pregnancy-specific, from the farcically miserable boss (Chris Parnell, uncharacteristically unfunny, even when playing off a small dog) to the sassy best friend (Cheryl Hines, trying her best and smoking up a storm) to the see-it-from-a-mile-away office romance that threatens to unravel once the truth is revealed.

    If you don't think too hard about it--and don't mind seeing every single romantic movie cliche crammed in two hours--then you will find Labor Pains to be less painful than actual birth.

    It may not be the stuff Emmy dreams are made of, but it's still goofy, broad-strokes summer fun.
