Labor Pains


Well, watched the movie as I couldn’t wait and the film is really “cute”. An entertaining well acted predictable romantic comedy with Lindsay Lohan looking good and acting good.

The film tells the story of Thea Dixon (Lindsay Lohan) that when her boss is about to fire her she tells him that she’s pregnant. Obviously is not true, she does not get fired and the lie grows to really large dimensions that make Thea start to behave like she was really pregnant. The plot has many twists and a typical happy finale.

The film by Lara Shapiro is not a masterpiece, but it does not look like a made for TV movie or a B-Movie at all. Think that decision to go direct to TV and DVD came from all the business problems that the production had –which you can read in the net- and perhaps it help a little the awful media coverage that Lohan gets.

Anyway performances by a good cast are above average, production values are great and Lindsay Lohan performs as her best, like in all her previous comedies. So if you enjoyed her previous comedies, then you should not miss this one.

If you are in the mood for a light, cute, sweet and entertaining movie this film is for you.

Enjoy!!!
