After being without the internet for about a month, perhaps longer, I was finally able to surf the interwebs at home. And so I had to get all caught up on what I had missed out on, then it was time to fire up the ole PS3 and see what was on Netflix Watch Instant. I know the whole Disney library was added and a bunch more, but I figured the easiest way to get caught up, just go through the recently added ones. Well as you can see, The Babymakers was the first one that I came across that I was somewhat interested in watching.

I was a big fan of Olivia Munn when she was on Attack of the Show, and wished her all the best when she left. It seemed that most of the movies she was involved with ended up being straight to DVD releases, which is never a good sign. But luckily for her, she had a great 2012, with being on The Newsroom and Magic Mike, so hopefully that luck will continue in 2013. I remember seeing Super Troopers and thought it was okay, and not amazing like most people did. And I remember Paul Schneider from Lars and the Real Girl, a great movie you should check out. It’s got Ryan Gosling in it, so that should be enough for most people.

We are 263 words into this review, and I suppose it’s finally time to get around to talking about this movie. The Babymakers is about a married couple, Tommy (Schneider) and Audrey (Munn), who decide it is finally time to have a baby. Well after many failed attempts, they decide to go to a doctor to see what the problem is. It seems that he is shooting blanks, but remember that he used to donate to a sperm bank to raise money to buy her wedding ring, it’s a running joke that should have only lasted one time. But the people at the bank aren’t being very helpful, so what is his only option. Well of course, round up your buddies, with some help from a co-worker Ron Jon (Jay Chandrasekhar), and break in and get his sperm back. Who didn’t see that coming?

I hate to admit that there were a few times I did laugh, but I am not sure it was enough to justify wasting an hour and half to watch this. If you are a fan of Super Troopers and Beerfest, I am sure you are going to enjoy this. It’s not the worst movie I have ever seen, so if you want to kill some time, give it a shot. It’s nothing you need to hurry up and go seek out.

    I thought Super Troopers and Beerfest were hilarious and even I didn’t like this movie.
