10 reasons I love Tina Fey’s “Baby Mama”

My love for all things Tina
is well documented and borders on obsession. I swear, your honor, I’ve been sure
to stay at least 500 feet away from her, as the court order requires.
So I think I’m allowed this simple indulgence. Yesterday I watched
the first trailer for her new comedy Baby Mama, and, save for the unfortunate fact
that my badonkadonk is still very much in place, I pretty much laughed
my ass off.

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Sigourney
and Maura Tierney
together in one movie? Has someone been reading my dream journal again?
The premise is this: A 30-something successful single gal (Fey) longs
for a baby and hires a surrogate (Poehler) who lives with her during
the nine months of the pregnancy, and hilarity ensues. In case you think
I’m exaggerating, please take a look for yourself. (Watch it in glorious hi-def
.) But I warn
you: Ye of tiny hiney should beware, because when you’re done you could
have none left.


Since I’m the self-admitted
obsessive type, I thought I’d break down the trailer into a top 10
list of reasons I’m already in love with Tina’s Baby Mama.
This in no way violates my TRO, your honor.

10. Tina’s nightshirt.
I love it when women wear men’s shirts to bed — minus the men, of course.

9. The negotiations. Full service
is on off the table.

8. The DMX baby. God, imagine
the face it’d make if you listened to Yanni instead.

7. Sigourney Weaver. Mmmmm,
Sigourney Weaver.

6. Tina’s dance. Only
Tina would get down tonight by doing a festive jig.

5. The versatility of Pam. The
next time I fry an egg, I’m going to have a lot more to think about.

4. The baby-proofing. When
you’ve got to go, you’ve got to go.

3. The “chocolate or poop” test.
This is a good way to assure your friends will never eat dessert at
your house ever again.

2. The lesbianism moment. “Kate,
I want you to put your baby inside me.” “I want to put my baby
inside you.” Um, can I watch?

So, what do you think? Are
you ready to welcome Tina’s Baby Mama into your life come
April 25?
