THE BABYMOONERS REVIEWED
“The Babymooners” explores a concept that seems almost promised to the Coastal types. You get a brief reprieve from life to enjoy things before the arrival of your child. While I enjoy a couple using this opportunity to create a rather interesting film. It’s very much a one-and-done. Try explaining this one to a mixed crowd outside of the basic conceit. Throughout several vignettes and attempts at highbrow comedy, the end result feels like it is destined for Indie festivals to play on a loop. Watch it once and decide for yourself.

The Plot Thus Far
Two weeks before the birth of her first child, New Yorker Shaina Feinberg, recounts her reluctant journey to motherhood in a video letter to her son. Clearly influenced by old Woody Allen films, her letter becomes a series of vignettes that include her newly sober husband, her goofy Upper West Side parents, an adorable Shih Tzu, a neurotic shrink and her own views on daytime television.
