Baby Boom (1987)
"I can't have a baby, I have a 12 o'clock lunch meeting," wails Diane Keaton in this comedy-drama about balancing work and family. Keaton plays J.C., a workaholic New York businesswoman who "inherits" a baby from her long-lost relatives. Initially a disaster (albeit one that creates opportunities to skewer the yuppie lifestyle), becoming a mother ultimately solves all of her problems, leading her to abandon her 1980s power suits for a better house, better job and better boyfriend (Sam Shepard as a handsome veterinarian). Just like in real life, yes?
