Format: DVD
Definitely not the best film in the world, but very enjoyable. Ted Danson plays a self-absorbed, alcoholic, bed-hopping car salesman and wealthy owner of a large car dealership. Whoopi Goldberg portrays a widowed single mom of a teenage daughter who owns an African-centric shop.
Whoopi has given the impression to her daughter that her late husband was her child's father, but when she finds her father's death certificate, she knows that is impossible. Whoopi confesses that in the lonely period after her husband's death, she resorted to sperm donation.
With the help of her boyfriend (hilariously played by Will Smith), she breaks into the sperm bank's computer records to find the identity of her father and lo and behold - it's Ted Danson.
She's a little shocked and when she reveals her findings to her mother, her mother is horrified. When Ted Danson's character is confronted with the news, his life takes a 180. He now has responsibilities as a father, even though he was told that his sperm would only be used for research when he donated several years earlier. He now has something to live for and finds that he can actually like himself and he finds himself loving the child he never knew. He stops bed-hopping and drinking and finds himself focusing on catching up on his daughter's life.
There are some ridiculous scenes in this movie and some very cheesy, over-acted parts, but as a whole, it is an entertaining and enjoyable experience. There are a few scenes that will put a lump in your throat and others that will have you doubled-over with laughter... and in the end, you feel you're a part of this mixed-heritage family.

This movie's story line is about how two people, who are polar opposites, find their lives collide because of a young woman's desire to find her dad. The outcome is loving and amazing. However, the story is told with both tremendous humor as well as pathos, that you will just enjoy every moment. I owned this movie years ago in a video casette format and chose to replace it with the dvd because the story was too good to ever let go. You cannot go wrong with this purchase. Real life should only be this good!

Whoopi Goldberg and Ted Danson with a young-ish Will Smith star in this move about a mum and daughter relationship that encounters the sperm donor/father of the daughter entering their lives by accident after it emerges from a high school science blood test the type of blood the daughter has doesn't match up with her mother and passed original father , it comes to light she was born from a donor and she tracks him down...and he was not what either expected him to be. The movie rides along through the building of relationships and friendships between all parties, with some funny moments .. Not all that often mind you, I didn't watch this film and laugh out but twice only. It's a nice film, enjoyable to watch and a good solid story .. Whoopi is as always on top form here...just lacks that more original comic touch..enjoyed it greatly, I watched it again after many years as its not available in the UK...I'm in the US now and it's region 1 available ..

Interesting premise, well acted and well directed. I really enjoyed this film. Seems obvious that Ted Danson's character was at least loosely based on good ol' Cal Worthington. Native Californians of a certain age will remember Cal well from all his crazy commercials (circus animals and bi-planes). Loved Whoopi's character and the young actress who played her daughter was really good too.

I can't believe this isn't offered by Amazon anymore! Glad I bought it when I did. I'm very happy with my purchase. The movie is so hilarious. I saw when I was younger and enjoyed it and love it even more as an adult. Wonderful cast. Just pure comedy.

Whoopi Goldberg is at her most delightful self in this film while Ted Danson looks great in western boots and hat! Will Smith and Nia Long do a great job in supporting roles. The story line is fun, and there is lots of humor. I was looking for a family film, however, and there was far too much sexual content, both overt and innuendo, to ever share this with kids.

This movie is over 20 years old and I've been loving and enjoying it just that long. Will Smith, Nia Long and Whoopi Goldberg are all very talented actors with great bodies of work and Made in America was a great look for all 3. Who knew Will Smith would go on to be such a great movie super star. Wonderful entertaining 90's classic.
