x The Story : Alex Hesse and Larry Arbogast are working on a new drug which will reduce the chances of a woman's body rejecting an embryo and thus causing a miscarriage. When their research funding is withdrawn, and human experimentation is denied to them, they decide to test the drug by breifly impregnating Hesse. Hesse however becomes attached to "his" unborn baby.
x Takes on Emma" Thompson and DeVito turn their scenes into a seminar for the study and exercise of the double take; the way they react to developments is funnier than the developments themselves. One of Thompson's gifts, which is precious here, is a way of cheerfully making the best of obviously catastrophic situations

" Surprisingly, it is Emma Thompson, on leave from the good manners of Merchant-Ivory (Howards End, The Remains of the Day), who goes barking bonkers. She got her start in comedy, and it's a kick watching her cut loose "
