Movie Review: The Babymakers

“The Babymakers” on IMDB

Comedy,  95 Minutes, 2012

The basic idea here is that this guy has been hit in the balls so much that his “sperm are bad” but he’d still like to impregnate his wife.  He remembers that he used to donate sperm all the time and tries to get retrieve some of that but he finds out his last batch has been sold and will be used soon!  So he collects his stereotypical group friends – the fat crazy one, the dumb one and black one – and plans a sperm heist.

The script is the worst kind of juvenile.  The jokes are all of the gross-out variety and none of them are actually funny (even the scene where the fat friend did prat-falls in puddles of semen, for some strange reason, failed to elicit a laugh.)  Everything in the movie is really contrived and stupid but I supposed that’s fine because all of the characters are tremendously unlikable.  Technically the movie is a loss as well.  Although supposedly made this year the washed out lighting and terrible audio work make it look more late-seventies or early eighties.

This really is the worst kind of comedy: utterly unoriginal and lacking any perceptible soul.  Watching it is a truly terrible way to spend 90 minutes of your brief time on earth.
