Everything we have seen about impending childbirth on film so far-- from "Nine Months" to "Knocked Up"-- has focused on the mother's experience with the dad-to-be along for the ride, seemingly to only offer uneducated attempts at comedic relief for their stressed out better halves. Snapper Lounge Media, PNM Productions, and Leslie Marsh have set out to rectify that now, though, with "Being Dad," an eighty-minute journey of what the various stages of pregnancy are like for the men "behind the scenes," so to speak. In some very real and very touchingly honest discussions with dads from all across the United States, "Being Dad" is one part informative educational tool and one part sentimental documentary.

"Being Dad" opens on Troy, a young man who's expecting his first child. Though the first minute or so tells us that Troy only has twelve hours until his baby is born, the film then backtracks through time to explore his nine-month journey. Footage of Troy attending to cravings, doctors appointments, Lamaze classes, and nursery preparations is few and far between, though, and mostly entails Troy talking directly to the camera about something his off-screen wife has said. Marsh, then, relies on a healthy combination of interviews with medical professionals as well as a random combination of strangers to cover a wide variety of possible experiences or any first time father.

Men from all over the country-- California, New York, Chicago, Boston-- were interviewed on-camera in "Being Dad," presumably to give their words a universal appeal.

I wish this video were available while my wife was pregnant 2 years ago. This movie is clearly by dads, for (soon-to-be) dads. And yet Mom will be thrilled to see Dad glued to the screen next to her.

Mom: Buy this video for your man, make some popcorn, and trick him into watching it. I was sucked in immediately myself, into the brotherhood of men discussing their experiences leading up to the births of their babies. I laughed a lot, I learned a lot, and I even had a lump in my throat at times. (You don't need to mention that part to your man.)

Dad: Picking up this video is an opportunity to score major points by showing how supportive you are during this new experience you're sharing. You need to bank up some of these points now. Trust me on this.

Friends & Family: Know that this video will serve as a great gift to both the soon-to-be Mom *and* Dad in your life. My wife loved it regardless of its focus on Dads. In fact, that made it more comical, plus she probably felt more at ease knowing that I wasn't disenfranchised (bored) watching your typical Mom-focused, more "clinical" video.

This movie shares all the facts of fatherhood in an informative yet playful format that makes us feel like we are part of the group of dads chatting with one another over a beer or two. A great preparation for becoming a first-time father and a trip down memory line for those who have already joined the fatherhood club (with lots of answers to those questions that even experienced dads have always been wondering about). While the general tone of the movie is light and humorous, these dads share their feelings from the heart and by including a wide variety of men from different parts of the country, the viewer gets a clear picture of the personal yet universal concerns and joys of becoming a father. Conversations between fathers are interspersed with brief explanations from various experts in the field. If it is ever truly possible to prepare for parenthood, "Being Dad" is an excellent first step in that preparation!

Great documentary exploring the pregnancy process from finding out through delivery; from a guys perspective. As mentioned it the movie, there are plenty of resources and groups for women, but very little for men.

My boyfriend and I tried to watch this and didn't make it more than 10 minutes into the video. There is a huge market for dad-to-be advice areas and we thought this would offer an uplifting view on the preparation of fatherhood and the beginning stages of being a dad. But it didn't. In fact, we were both so bored we turned it off. If we wanted to watch average guys tell their average stories about mundane daily events, we would walk down to the local coffee shop. But even there, we've found more inspirational stories on the joys of parenthood.

Great idea, but totally missed the mark.

My husband is a soon to be father for the first time. We are the first of any of our friends to have kids, so he really has had no one to talk to about their experiences. This video was a great way for him to hear some REAL perspectives of expecting fathers.

A good one-time watch. I didn't feel that it contained any information you couldn't get from talking to close friends or family who already have kids. Although, it was funny and entertaining so if you are looking to watch it only once I would definitely say buy it.
