Sarah Palin may be the best thing to ever happen to Tina Fey.

As a veteran of “Saturday Night Live” and creator of “30 Rock,” Fey proves she can be smart and funny, which for some reason remains rare among females working in Hollywood. Unfortunately, given the talent between Fey and her co-star, Amy Poehler, I think this dearth of good roles is because men in Hollywood haven’t a clue what to do with them.

Baby Mama, while an excellent idea with a funny preview, squanders the audience’s good will as the humor falters and the storyline meanders.

With so few creating good parts for women, politics seems to be filling the void with real life characters, ripe for lampooning.

Grade: C+ Baby Mama is currently available.
