Baby Done is a comedic film focusing on a character named Zoe (Rose Matafeo) is petrified of becoming a first time mum for the first time, and tries to ignore it for as long as possible. In contrast, Tim (Matthew Lewis) embraces becoming a first time father and starts to embrace what is about to happen to him and how his life will be changing, for the sake of the new born that is fast approaching both Zoe and Tim’s life.
As Zoe is scared about this, and how her life is about to change, she tries to do as much as possible from her bucket list before the new arrival, but as time progresses and the due date fast approaches, it pushes Zoe further into denial and her relationship with Tim to the absolute limit.
From watching this film, I found it funny and the way the producers directed the film they did a great job at showing a side to unpreparedness of parenthood in a comedic sense with some cringe-worthy scenes thrown in for additional laughs.
I enjoyed this film from start to end, and it does send out a message to young couples who may be in a long term relationship and are blissfully unaware of what is about to approach them in their lives, by ignoring their lives are about to change forever. It does help bring couples like this into thoughts of reality that this is real and it is happening, and to be prepared! But, I had a few questions as to how Zoe was unaware of how far along her pregnancy was when she visited her doctor – how did she manage to ignore kicking from the baby or notice her periods were not present, as her reaction was of a very shocked individual when told how far along she was in being pregnant.
Apart from this, I enjoyed the film, it is very funny and a film that doesn’t require too much attention nor a lot of background thinking, other than my questioning on being unaware of the pregnancy.
The chemistry on screen between Rose Matafeo and Matthew Lewis allows for a laid back, enjoyable watch to the film, making it funny to the viewer. The film’s writing and directing have been done so well, allowing the viewers of the film to feel they are involved in the story, due to the realness and emotions, and the comedy side too.
This film is now available to stream on available networks, including being available to watch now on Sky Cinema!
I rate this film 5 stars!
