THE BABYMAKERS

BabymakersWhat do you get when you cross one of cinema’s most talented character actors with one of the hottest actresses on the planet? In director Jay Chandresekhar’s amateurish comedy “The Babymakers,” the answer is: a flop.

As much as you want to root for Paul Schneider and Olivia Munn as a married couple trying to get pregnant in spite of hubby’s physiological shortcomings, “The Babymakers” shuts down all audience goodwill. Tommy (Schneider) and Audrey (Munn) have been married for three years when they decide it’s time to procreate. Trouble is, Tommy’s shooting blanks. Good thing he deposited 20 doses of his man-juice in a sperm bank years before. Now Tommy needs to get back the last remaining test tube of his precious bodily fluid, which has been purchased by a gay couple.

A sophomoric script by the screenwriting team of Peter Gaulke and Gerry Swallow is exacerbated by poor production values and shoddy direction. Olivia Munn is fun to look at, but you’d never guess at how talented Paul Schneider really is from the looks of this comic travesty.

Rated R. 98 mins.
