Editorial Reviews

Georgina Scott (Heather Graham) is a broody 33 year-old who sends her boyfriend Zak (Tom Ellis) packing when it has become apparent that he doesn't share her desire for a bundle of joy. Zak sets off on a documentary shoot and hopes that she'll cool off in his absence. But Georgina discovers that early menopause runs in her family and heads for a specialist with her reluctant best friend, Clem (Mia Kirshner, The L Word), in tow. Learning that her baby-making days are numbered, Georgina enlists Clem and their pal, Justin (Orlando Seale), to make the most of it. A battle plan is drawn up, but their escapades become increasingly frantic as Georgina explores internet sperm donors, personal ads respondents, night clubbers, a love-struck co-worker and funeral-goers in her hilarious and desperate attempts to beat the biological clock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary concept but funny romantic comedy November 4, 2008
Format:DVD
Let go of common sense before watching. In a drought of movies, desperate for something funny, diverting, hopefully romantic(too much to ask?), I found this surprisingly, entertaining and unknown flick in a lonely 'Red Box'.

The premise: a thirty-something, construction running, successful woman with a family history of early menopause and desperate for a baby, breaks up with her handsome, film documentary boyfriend because he's not sure he wants to go the family way. By the magic of modern medicine, she then discovers her biological clock almost ticked out with only one more ovum/egg remaining. Her friends devise a madcap scheme for her to either A. shack up with someone ASAP, i.e., one night standish, or B. sperm bank it.

For reasons not totally explained, she initially opts for Plan A, but then it deteriorates into whatever will get the job done, so to speak. She pines for her ex, but he's stuck and unreachable in the Aran Islands, Ireland being pursued by his catty but sexy assistant(Ruta Gedmintas).
Whatever can go wrong goes wrong as Heather Graham's character searches out potential 'donors'.

So, it sounds like a pretty, amoral tale, and it is until the end, but there's an old fashion kind of romance going on in wolf's clothing. The story's inane. The idea of urgently sleeping around in order to get pregnant is frightening in reality, but the movie's a gimmick for laughs, and it is funny.

I like Heather Graham. She usually plays in quirky, somewhat unknown movies. There's no nudity, some language, and lots of suggestive situations which give it the R-rating. I'd give it a 3-Star except, I love Orlando Seale who plays her gay, reluctant friend. I remember him from a LDS made film, "Pride and Prejudice" which is actually pretty good.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting story May 15, 2010
Format:DVD
Miss-conception is an odd little movie telling the tale of a woman who owns a construction company who shortly after breaking up with her man over his not wanting children finds that she only has a single egg left to have children with.

Her maternal clock on overload she goes into overtime first trying to find her man (who went to Ireland to film a documentary) and then to try to find a man, ANY man to be the right father/contributor.

As you might guess it leads to a comedy of errors and a bit of discovery for both her, her friend and her man Zack who owns the most poignant of the film in an encounter with a young nun in an Irish convent.

I don't want to give away too much of the plot, bits and pieces of it are predictable but the movie does have its moments. Never in the history of modern film has it been so hard for an attractive woman to get laid.

It might be worthwhile as a streaming download but I don't know if its a buyer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mix reviews all around! May 18, 2012
By S. Der
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Not many reviews for this one and they all are pretty mix. This movie I felt wasn't as good as other movies I have seen. I thought it would be a funny movie too, but it wasn't that funny at all. It really boring at times. I only gave it 2 stars because I think Heather is HOT! And, we get to see her in a bra that's about it. lol
