My biggest complaint was the ending.

The plot was pretty predictable, but still well done and very entertaining.

Wasn't quite what I expected from Australian film makers.

Diagnosed with testicular cancer, a weekend-party-arranger stops to play for fun but desperate for a female willing a kid with him to produce as clocks ticked for his surgery.

Personal revelations follow such quest for fulfilling a time-sensitive goal.

It seems, this work, unwittingly, is a good parody on talking of family values and sex-as-pure-reproduction only. Accurate lovemaking-scenes add to run of a screening enriched with swearing and sexism.

I thought this would be a very raunchy movie, but it turned out to have more more heart than you would think. Some people might find it slow, but I find that slower indie movies are much more realistic and easier to relate to. I will mention that it might offend some people's sensibilities. Obviously there's sex - an mildly extended blowjob scene, and some tastefully done full on sex scenes in the middle. Obviously premarital sex and babies, and treating reproduction as a business arrangement. Lastly they throw in some cocaine, which I found rather jarring and unnecessary. Still, funny movie with a core that I think a lot of people can relate to.

I love these types of movies. Ordinary people. Extraordinary circumstances. Real people facing difficult situations. What do you do?

Here's the story line. Young party guy finds out he has testicular cancer. Once he has surgery he will no longer be able to have children. He loves the idea of having a family.

So young guy tries to find someone, anyone, who will bear a child for him. Finally, his best friend steps up to the plate. She is willing. Not excited about the possibility of being a mother but there are some benefits that seem appealing. So they make a pact and try for a child.

This movie is so entertaining and engrossing that despite the raunchy sex we stuck with it and were rewarded with a wonderfully endearing story and finale. Totally recommend this film. It was far better than we expected.

This was a pleasure! Ryan Kwanten has a face and expression that emote such feeling that he hardly has to speak the words. He created Jason Stackhouse and is nothing like that character, yet we love and laugh with him every episode of True Blood. These movies should be more advertised to us happily-ever-after people so that we can relate them to each other and make them a hit. We don't need gratuitous death, just a slightly complicated resolved happy ending. Life is already full of misery. Give us just the right amount of sex and a great epilogue and we'll keep coming back for more. Someone should cast Ryan Kwanten in a hit that showcases his empathy. He would be a major star and I being 62 and not a beefcake groupie, would watch anything in which he starred. Enjoyed this movie thoroughly and would recommend it to all happily-ever-after junkies. (The other two major characters were also perfectly cast.)

Overall, I liked this movie. It dealt with the polar opposite of what most movies about "baby fever" are focused on. This time it's about a guy who finds out he won't be able to have children and suddenly, he finds himself questioning what he wants out of life.

There were some very predictable parts, but that's to be expected with a movie that's meant to be a rom-com. The character development of Jonah was good through the movie. Like another reviewer stated, there were times that the movie seemed to be slow, but when dealing with the subject matter - it made sense for more "showing" versus telling to happen.

My biggest complaint was the ending. It felt unfinished. Even just a small snippet of Jonah and Stevie in the not-so-distant future would have made it feel complete. Had there been a true conclusion/finale, I would've given it 4 stars.

"Not Suited for Children" (2012 release from Australia; 97 min.) brings the story of Jonah (played by Ryan Kwanten), a twenty-something happy-go-lucky guy who DJs parties and is living the good life. Soon into the movie, he learns he has testicular cancer, and before he undergoes remedial treatment, which will leave him infertile, he decides he wants to find some woman, ANYONE, to have a child with. To tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: first, despite the subject matter,,this is not a raunchy movie by any stretch, on the contrary. It is in fact a movie about someone reflecting on the real possibility that he will never have a child. It turns Jonah into a completely different person from who he was when the movie opens. His quest to find someone leads to all kinds of hilarious, smile-inducing moments. Second, I love the movie's title. Is this film not suited for children? Is Jonah not suited for children because of his medical condition? Or because of the person that he is? Just watch! Third, there is some great music in the movie (Jonah being a DJ) and the soundtrack is available here on Amazon.

Bottom line: when I picked this movie up at my local library the other day, I didn't really what to expect, but I was charmed by the movie, It's a nice 'little' indie movie (which happens to come from Australia) that entertained me from start to finish. "Not Suitable for Children" is definitely worth checking out.
