An intelligent, black teenage girl is shocked to discover from her strong, independent mother that she was the product of artificial insemination. Determined to track her biological father down, she looks up the records to find that not only is he a white man, but he's also an obnoxious and pompous car salesman. Naturally, complications ensue when her mother makes it clear that she requested a black donor. The cast is talented and enthusiastic, the setup is very clever and has the makings of a really enjoyable comedy, but unfortunately they're wasted on a lame script that resorts endlessly to dumb, sitcom-style humor. A real shame. **
