The Babymakers

JOY REVIEW

The Babymakers stars Paul Schneider and Olivia Munn as a couple that has been married for years and decide they want to have a baby, without any success. It turns out that when they were dating he lied, saying he was playing softball, when he was really donating sperm at $85 a pop for nine months, so he’s convinced that his sperm is okay and it turns out that his sperm is in fact not okay. So the idea is they have to break into the sperm bank to get his sperm. It’s one of those stories that’s kind of — it’s kind of mixed. There is a sweetness about it, in that when he fantasizes in order to make a sperm donation, he fantasizes about his wife, which is kind of sweet. And they do have kind of a cute relationship, but, I mean, the raunch factor — I don’t know who this is going to be for. It’s not going to be a date movie, because it’s too raunchy. It’s not going to be a guy movie, because even though it’s raunchy, it’s really a romantic comedy, so I don’t know whom it’s for. I liked the women during the time that he’s trying to make the sperm donation, and that two women come to try and convince him to take Jesus as his savior. So I mean, I guess it’s more of a TV movie than a made for movie theater movie. It will probably do okay on DVD. Two and a half stars.
