Marshall Crenshaw Has Song In Baby Mama

As Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's new blockbuster film, Baby Mama, opens on screens across the nation today, movie goers will be treated to a song by Marshall Crenshaw titled "This Street." According to Crenshaw, "I was really pleased that somebody found this one from the deepest recesses of my catalog. It's got a nice beat, a great riff, and I can't wait to see how it works in the film." In a comedy that brings together some of today's sharpest talent, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler team with writer/director Michael McCullers and producer Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn to tell the story of two women, one apartment, and nine months that will change their lives.

The movie has received rave reviews. Gene Shalit on "Today" said, "Baby Mama is filled with surprises and laughter." Pete Hammond in Hollywood.com added, "Baby Mama delivers the laughs non-stop. A warm and engaging comedy you are guaranteed to fall in love with." And the Chicago Sun-Times' Bill Zwecker exclaimed, "Oh Baby! Hands down this is the funniest comedy I've seen this year!"

In other news, the DVD to Walk Hard starring John C. Reilly became available on April 8, featuring Crenshaw's widely acclaimed title track. The rockabilly-tinged song, penned by Crenshaw at the request of director Jake Kasdan and producer Judd Apatow, is heard repeatedly throughout the movie.
