BABY BOOM (1988) **

In this mediocre yuppie comedy, Diane Keaton stars as a workaholic whose life changes drastically when she inherits a baby.  Will she give up city life for the country?  Will her homemade baby food be a Wall Street success?  Will she fall in love with Sam Shepard?  Will you puke from the banal and predictable plot?  At least James Spader provides his usual yuppie scum routine (albeit on autopilot) and Harold Ramis is amusing, but this thoroughly innocuous chick flick is way too long for its own good.  Director Charles Shyer and Keaton later reteamed for Father of the Bride.
