While the moment is more OTT than an episode of your favourite soap opera, it's warranted. Simply put, no one plays cuckoo better than Ranaka
Mdoda as Sandy brings a more vulnerable and honest performance as a jilted baby mama so hung up on her ex that she thinks they still have a future together even though he has clearly moved on.
So, what does she do to numb her sadness and pain? She makes his life a living hell. You will love Mdoda in the one scene and hate her in the next.
The most boring of the ladies is Mosese as the girl-next-door and squeaky clean Toli. Even more annoying as Mosese sees the most screen-time. Her baby daddy issues at home with her ex Tumi (Sthembiso SK Khoza) are perfect.
They are doing what Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow and singer Chris Martin coined "conscious uncoupling". The build-up for her budding romance with hunky IT technician Michael (Jonathan Boynton-Lee) have initial flying sparks, but the finishing is lukewarm.
It's mainly because the chemistry between the pairing is just lacklustre.
At its worst, the screenplay comes off as cheesy with certain plot inconstancies, combined with the wobbly editing, being the film's biggest flaws.
The endearing music selection, with some original songs by cast member Nicholas "Nicksoul" Nkuna, gets two thumbs up.
The film's biggest lesson, when it comes to baby mama -or baby daddy - drama is the glass has to always be half full.
Baby Mamas is currently showing in cinemas nationwide.
