I would like to start by saying that I know that a movie starring Tina Fey and Amy Pohler, directed by Lorene Michaels, is not a documentary. Furthermore, I laughed a lot, and even identified with Tina Fey's character. The early scene with the post-it notes reminding herself to think positive, to relax etc was very familiar. Her baby lust was believable. I loved when people misidentified her as pregnant (although it wasn't believable because she hardly potbellied, but whatever). I even enjoyed the ending where she manages to get pregnant because she's fallen in love (or however you decode that ending). She was having unprotected sex? Or was it even more of a 1 in a million because she got pregnant though a condom with a T-shaped ute? WTF!
The best bit in the movie was the Sigourney Weaver character who kept disavowing that she was using donor eggs and surrogacy. I just loved how she was flat bellied all the way through the film, and then had twins. Uh, yeah right! Also, her hypocrisy was hysterical. Here she is talking about outsourcing, and new ways to make a family, and she won't cop to her own stuff...hehehehe.
But Yeesh! Do ya think they could have done a few forays into checking out the sequence of things? It's just not possible for a woman to go through 3 IUI's and 2 IVF's without an HSG. If she had a T shaped Uterus, and 'wonderful eggs' she would have most likely been having miscarriages--not that negatives aren't a possibility, but with a T shaped UTE, miscarriages would have been a very plausible part of the picture. Again,I want to reiterate that I know this was a comedy, and multiple miscarriages don't make for a funny movie (a funny but painful blog, yes, movie, unlikely). I guess that going with unexplained, and great embryo's no implantation would have been more plausible, and easier to swallow.
Second Yeesh! Did they have to go with the narrative that love conquers all? Did they have to go with relax and it will happen?' I will admit that relaxing hasn't ever been one of my strong points, but Love, I've got that going on.
For the record, my husband and I love each other very deeply, and like each other tremendously, and it has done squat for our infertility. Perhaps the problem is that I don't have the right writers, and my director is too film noir, not enough screwball...yeah that's the problem. I need a better producer.
