All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (11)

  • Graham is charming, but Miss Conception is a cloddish biological-clock bedroom farce.

    Jun 6, 2008 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • Miss Conception isn't so much a movie as an extended sitcom -- it looks like one, it acts like one, it reduces everything to the lowest common denominator like one.

    Jun 6, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Eric Styles and writer Camilla Leslie have made a punishingly unfunny trifle about sex, love and maternity in which both women and men are flatter than magazines--walking, talking issues of Lady's Home Journal and Maxim.

    Jun 6, 2008 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • It feels more like a small-screen distraction.

    Jun 6, 2008
  • Miscast and miscalculated, Miss Conception hopes to collect on Hollywood's recent baby-on-board craze, delivering instead the least credible take on human pregnancy since Arnold Schwarzenegger gave birth in Junior.

Audience Reviews for Miss Conception

  • Jan 15, 2011
    Miss Conception tells the story of an attractive young woman Georgina (Heather Graham) who finds out that she only has 4 days left to conceive. . The problem is that her longtime boyfriend (Tom Ellis) has no desire to be a daddy, and after getting into a fight with him, Georgina is forced to look elsewhere for sperm-donor options. This leads to some funny situations as she sets about luring a man (and a turkey baster) to make her pregnant. Heather Graham is obviously miscast here because I find it extremely hard to believe that despite being beautiful and the boss of some macho construction workers she would find it as hard as she did to get a donor for her baby. <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=5nn908" target="_blank"><img src="http://i56.tinypic.com/5nn908.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=250p6jo" target="_blank"><img src="http://i51.tinypic.com/250p6jo.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=2ik9ycw" target="_blank"><img src="http://i54.tinypic.com/2ik9ycw.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=maw8kn" target="_blank"><img src="http://i51.tinypic.com/maw8kn.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a>

    Funny in it's parts, but really, stupid concept.

    Fun movie to watch when you're bored in bed with the stomach flu. At least it won't make you vomit any more! Watch it if you like Heather Graham like I do. Just don't use her accent against her!

    Fairly predictable movie. I was actually bored during it and I'm amazed that I finished it. I thought it might be funny because of the humorous premise so I gave it a chance. It was mostly just a stupid waste of time.
