I managed to sneak in a screening of Baby Mama this weekend and was reminded that Karaoke Revolution is a universal crowd pleaser. Without giving away any pivotal plot points of the movie I can reveal that Amy Poehler's character, the not-so-worldly Angie who Tina Fey's character Kate hires to carry her baby, spends ample time in Kate's apartment sharpening her Karaoke Revolution skills. The habit annoys Kate at first but eventually brings the two together when they join forces for a wicked "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" performance.

Tina Fey's character "masters" the game by singing in an awful voice, but completely on key. It's pure, painful karaoke entertainment at its best. According to the video game cheat code experts, you can master the game by singing the right songs. Apparently, "More Than a Feeling" gets you five platinum records for five songs, while "What Is Love" gets you 10 platinum records for 10 songs. I'm no cheater, but karaoke can get pretty competitive . . .
