Critic Reviews for The Baby Maker

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

I obviously like The Baby Maker more than I suspect a lot of people will. But let me say it's a movie you won't find painful to experience, even if you don't like it.

Starring Barbara Hershey, James Bridges' first film deals with surrogate motherhood long before it became a hot-button issue.
