Miss Conception Review, by Sherri Linden of The Hollywood Reporter

The toplining Heather Graham has a daffy comic quality but mainly relies on cutesy mugging, much as the story rests on flimsy situations. A light touch keeps the film from being an ordeal, but the story's trajectory is as predictable as the setup is contrived.


The Blue Angel Films/Miromar Entertainment/Northern Ireland Screen/International Film Finance production is receiving a limited release from First Look Studios. It feels more like a small-screen distraction. It opens Friday, June 6.


The inanity begins when a fertility expert assures Georgina, 33, that she's about to enter early menopause and has precisely one egg left. As bad timing would have it, she has just kicked out her boyfriend (Tom Ellis) because he hadn't expressed the requisite eagerness to procreate. He even went so far as to smash his sister's ostentatiously displayed belly cast, a passive-aggressive move that marks the bland character's one sign of mental activity.
