In Baby Boom, the 1987 comdey, J.C. Wiatt, played by Diane Keaton, is a successful New York business woman. She gets news of an inheritance from a relative from another country and assumes it will be money. Instead, it turns out to be a baby girl. J.C. is now stuck with a baby, a situation that definitely does not fit her fast-paced, busy New York City lifestyle. Her boyfriend doesn’t like the idea of a baby living with them and takes off, prompting J.C. to look into adoption. Finding herself too attached to let go, J.C. experiences one life-changing event after another when she also loses her job. She sets her eyes on an old two-story cottage in Vermont to escape the New York life. She gets bored one snowy day and decides to make applesauce. Her baby loves it and she gets the great idea to package it and sell it as baby food. Pretty soon everyone wants some of the baby applesauce. J.C. hits it big and also falls in love with a local veterinarian, Jeff, played by Sam Shepard.
