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.Read more ›
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.

The quality of the dvd cover and case was very average, not to mention what a disaster the movie wasPublished on October 31, 2010 by laurad
The movie seemed a little bit long but it was fun movie. I rented it to watch on the treadmill for 99 cents on Amazon and it was worth it. Read morePublished on July 7, 2009 by Amazon Customer
