    Greetings

    My wife and I recently found out that we are pregnant. I'd like to get some DVDs as a present that depict pregancies and/or childbirth.

    Father of the Bride 2 and Nine Months are already part of our collection....two movies that my wife ABSOLUTELY loves.

    Any other suggestions? I'd prefer comedies.....and obviously nothing that deals with pregnancy tragedies (i.e. miscarriages..)

    Thanks for the help!

    The very end of Dr. T and the Women features an actual birth.

    I did a search on Google with child, birth, comedy, and movie, and the only thing I came up from looking at the first few results was this:

    She's Having a Baby

    The IMDB rating isn't great, but not bad. Any opinions?

    Under no circumstances should you have to subject yourself to any of the Look Who's Talking or Three Men and a Baby movies, even if your wife is pregnant.

    My wife enjoyed The Story of Us, but I wasn't crazy about it.

    I see this as a good excuse to rewatch Fargo (she's pregnant) and Raising Arizona. [​IMG]

    Congrats!! My wife and I recently found out the same thing. She's Having a Baby is far and away our favorite film on the subject. It's John Hughes in his prime, back when he was actually funny. I highly recommend it.

    Steve,

    Congrats on the news!

    Although it's not out on DVD yet, the festival hit Expecting is a wonderful improvosational comedy from Toronto, about a woman who has an in-home birth and the colorful characters that are in her life.

    I'd recommend "My Life", but that would probably be jinxing you, right? [​IMG]

    I just thought of something else you might enjoy, Bill Cosby: Himself. (Not on DVD, sadly.) Most of Cosby's material revolves around his family. There is quite a bit here about his wife's pregnancy and the "joy" of children afterwards. Very funny stuff!

    Based on your very personal interest, I would highly suggest Stan Brakhage's very personal Window Water Baby Moving; thankfully, it will be a part of Criterion's upcoming collection of his films by Brakhage: an Anthology.

    How about "The Paper"? The movie isn't about pregnancy, but it does have one, along with a child being born. It's also a very good comedy as a whole.

    I think I am the only person I know that saw The Paper in the theater. Still one of my favorites. Is the dvd any good?
