This one like one of them Woody Allen films maybe a tad better. Micheal Caine and his trademark Cockney are pleasing to watch and women are just o-so-charming. Alfie ('66)

277 Days of Romantic Films:Till Valentines:..BABY BOOM...presents the challenges modern mom's have to deal with, like a baby fever. LOVE STORY AD INSTANT MOMMYHOOD Diane Keaton shines in a role few actors but her could pull off. I know it's not a full on Rom-Com but there is a love interest and they are together in the end. Yes it's formulaic, but taking care of a baby has the same modern challenge now as there was in the mid 80's. QT: "I can't have a baby because I have a 12:30 lunch meeting."
This is a sad sad story that, although it's made out to be some-one's experience of times gone by, it still reflects the values of the Asian countries in the part of the world the movie was made. A worthwhile movie to watch, yet very haunting, due to the effect patriarchal society has on women, especially in Asia.
