    I’m not so sure the size of the baby is that unreasonable. All of mine were big, ranging from 4.750kg to 5.050kg not that I managed to push any of them out, being only 158cm tall myself. Depends on your comparison I suppose, all TV birth scenes suck anyway.

    That baby is about 7kg which is what, 15pounds? There abouts?

    I thought the reason for the “Helen’s fine” is because shes soooooo old. Also the assumption is that its someone else having a baby yeah? You dont realise its Helen until its out.

    Love Keanu Reeves in that movie.

    I have a vague recollection of quite an old movie where the baby was ridiculously large – like several months old. I wish I could remember what it was.

    From those that Lisa has reviewed it does appear that most modern movies make the effort to use a fairly newborn baby. Parenthood is an exception, but I’m sure there’s much worse out there.

    Great movie though. I was amazed at Joaquin Phoenix. He looked so familiar but I couldn’t quite place him. Then the penny dropped.

    If you like Parenthood (I concur), you’ll love “Father of the Bride”. Steve Martin does a Dad so well.

    They could have used a younger baby I think. Maybe the size is okay but I am a mother of three and that doesn’t look at all like a newborn but, its movie, right?
