Chris Columbus
Released:
1995
Rating:
PG-13
Nine Months is a 1995 romantic comedy about a man whose life is turned upside down when his girlfriend suddenly tells him that she is pregnant. Samuel Faulkner (Hugh Grant) is quite happy with his life. His job as a child psychologist affords him both a good salary and professional satisfaction. Furthermore, he is dating a wonderful woman named Rebecca Taylor (Julianne Moore), a ballet teacher who is extraordinarily kind and beautiful. Things take a sharp left turn, however, when Rebecca tells Samuel that she is pregnant. Already terrified of becoming a father, Samuel is further spooked after spending time with an annoying couple, Marty (Tom Arnold) and Gail (Joan Cusack), who are raising a large family of their own. Samuel eventually leaves Rebecca -- and most of the responsibility of fatherhood -- but eventually has second thoughts and returns to her. But as the birth of his child draws near, Samuel begins to panic again and wonder if he is truly cut out to be a father.moreless
