The plot is weird but it's quite funny
18 August 2001 | by (Wolverhampton, England) – See all my reviews

What a situation, marrying a stranger just to have a baby. And that's what this movie is about.......... and yes it is a comedy

Gil Gerard is quite good at comedy. He and Suzanne Pleshette are a great duo and Bert Convy is a joy to watch as he and Gil battle it out to see who gets the girl. I recommend this movie, the plot is weird but it goes along at a nice pace and is quite funny. : )
