"Be My Baby"

By Ken Ludwig

Directed by Jim Fletcher

A grouchy Scotsman and an uptight English woman despise each other, yet they're thrust together on a trans-Atlantic journey to retrieve the baby adopted by his ward and her niece who are newly married. Sparks fly initially, but as they jointly care for the infant and their return trip is repeatedly delayed, a prickly romance blossoms.
