Then: that awkward moment when your random one-night-stand asks, is that a lump?
Boom. Jonah's got testicular cancer. His life isn't at risk, but the impending treatment will leave him completely infertile. Jonah realizes, to everyone's shock: he wants to be a dad. His attempts at the sperm bank are a failure. His only choice is natural conception. Within the next four weeks. He's gotta procreate before it's too late.
What follows is a rousing (get it?) parade of ex-girlfriends, mistaken match-ups, surrogate slip-ups and a whole lot of Baby Daddy Drama. Poor Jonah may be out of options - until he starts listening to his friends AND his heart, and realizes that a perfect candidate might be closer than anyone would think.

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.
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.
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.
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.
