Critic reviews
When the Bough Breaks paints a nasty, bloody, worst-case-scenario picture of what can (theoretically) happen when using a surrogate to have a baby goes really, really wrong. Full review
Adam R. Holz
Plugged In
When the Bough Breaks, about a well-off couple and the woman they hire to carry their embryo, looks for suspense in a genre that has little left. Full review
