A movie of scientific studies!
6 July 2001 | by (Hicksville, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie came out when all the genetics testing and test tube babies were being experimented with. This movie experiments with the same concept. A baby being born outside the mother's body, in a laboratory. IMO, I enjoyed the movie. I'm a sucker for baby movies and this one touched me. At the time it was made, the concept seemed highly unlikely, or very farfetched, but now, it seems more babies are entering the world due to science and technology everyday. A must see, IMO. :)
