Baby Boom

Charles Shyer, 1987 (8.5*)
Terrific feel good comedy with Diane Keaton as a corporate executive and career-oriented single woman who inherits her sister’s baby after her death in a car accident. At first she’s the world’s worst mom, as the child interferes with her work, then she gets a chance to be a good mom in a new location, with hilarious results. Sam Shepherd is a local vet who becomes her new friend. This small film says a lot about motherhood, perserverance, ingeniuty, business, and all with a big heart and with warm humor. Very rewarding film, no matter what gender, one of Diane's best.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
