An Unexpected Comedy.
Academy Award winner Diane Keaton "is smashing" (Pauline Kael) as a high-powered career woman who inherits a baby - and discovers a side of herself she never knew she had...a maternal one! Co-starring Sam Shepard and James Spader, this "sophisticated, screwball comedy" (Rex Reed, "At the Movies") about the pitfalls and payoffs of instant parenthood will put a smile on your face again and again.
J.C. Wiatt (Keaton) thinks she has it all together. Beautiful and talented, she's on the road to certain success. So when an adorable baby girl comes into her life by way of a distant cousin's will, it's J.C. who breaks out in a rash! Juggling power lunches and powdered formula, she is soon off the fast track by a conniving colleague and a bigoted boss. But this lady won't stay down for long. She'll prove to the world that a woman can have it all - and on her own terms too!
