    I Want My Country Baby

    I watched this classic from 1987 for the millionth time last night (OK not really, probably more like the 15th time but you get the point) and I found myself laughing just as hard as I did the first time.


    For those of you who have never seen this movie I will give you a brief synopsis. Diane Keaton plays J.C. Wiatt a powerful executive, nicknamed "The Tiger Lady", on her way to making partner with a New York consulting firm. She has a comfortable, if maybe passionless, relationship and her life seems to be going great. Then a lat night phone calls changes everything.


    The phone call is from England informing her that her cousin and his wife died in a automobile accident and that she has inherited something from them. She is all excited thinking it's money when it fact it ends up being their baby. She doesn't know what to do. She can't have a baby, a baby will mess everything up. So she takes care of her for a few days just until she can take her to the adoption agency. Now if that actually worked movie would be over and I wouldn't be here talking about it. Needless to say she can't bring herself to do it once she is there and ends up keeping baby Elizabeth.


    Now how is she supposed to juggle being a mom and making partner? Being 1987 is doesn't work out very well. Her boyfriend, played by Harold Ramis, leaves her. Her protegee, cunningly played by James Spader, takes advantage of the fact she is so distracted at work and takes over her biggest account. Her boss, played by Sam Wanamaker, informs her she is being passed over as partner. So what is a strong, independent women to do? She quits, buys a farm house in Vermont with an apple orchard, and attempts to start over.


    This is were the movie gets really good so I'm just going to gloss over the plot here. Everything goes wrong for her once her and baby Elizabeth are living in Vermont. Her well drys up, roof needs to be replaced, she has no social life and feels she is becoming an old maid. She eventually, in a fit of desperation, unloads on her handyman then faints.


    When she comes to she is in a doctor's exam room and ends up spilling her guts out to Sam Shepard thinking he is a doctor. Which he is, but not for humans, he's a Vet. Needless to say she is humiliated and storms out. In the mean time she had been making apple sauce for Elizabeth from the orchards on her property. One day she brings some into the general store and finds herself selling a few jars to some tourists from The City.


    The rest of the movie is about starting over. Starting her own baby food company, Country Baby. Starting a new relationship with Dr. Jeff Cooper. Starting to become involved with the community that she had been living in but not taking part in.


    Once she thinks she has everything figured out her old boss tells her that a company wants to buy her out. So does she sell the company and move back to New York? Does she in the end say no, stay in Vermont, and stay with the doctor? Well watch the movie and find out.


    This is one of my favorite movies from the 80s and is well worth watching. I think it still accurately portrays the way some women feel that they have to make a choice between career and family. Hopefully this is a rather good example that tells everyone that they can have both and that they don't have to make a choice. So please watch this movie. I promise you won't be disappointed.
