Fans (like me!) of the former "Saturday Night Live" Weekend Update duo Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be happy to know the pair is still going strong. In fact, they're making a baby together! And by "baby" I mean a movie called Baby Mama.
Fey will play Kate, a successful executive at Happy Planet (described as "a Whole Foods-type grocery store") who wants to have a baby but can't fathom taking a break from her career to do so. Thus, she hires a surrogate mother (Poehler) and, I'm sure, comedic misadventures ensue.
In fact, I think Poehler has comedic abilities that extend much farther than anything we've seen in her mainstream projects thus far. Anyone who has seen her improvise in person (as I have been lucky enough to do) can say with certainty that she is naturally smart, sassy, and hilarious. If anything, some of the bigger things she's done have dumbed her down (see: Envy). Here's hoping Baby Mama will turn out as awesome as its "parents" are.
