Storyline

At age 19, a young woman is jilted at the altar. This leads to a declaration that she will swear off men forever. Now 10 years later, she suddenly decides she would like to have a child. She advertises in the newspaper for potential mates, whether by traditional methods or by sperm donors, but gets nothing but losers. However, two neighborhood men vie for her attention - her gynecologist and a professional clown. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Darcy: [narration] ... and not a bogus pearl, either... one with some value, one with some weight...
[amongst the post-it notes on the refrigerator, one reads: HAVE A CHILD]
Darcy: [narration] ...the kind you cast before swine.
Leila Sweet: Come on, Paxil.

Nice idea
11 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

The film is somewhat entertaining, but the greatest feature is Shalom Harlow's laughable performance. It has been 4 years since this movie was released and hopefully Harlow has gone through more training. Perhaps she should stick to the more worldly, somewhat corruptive characters that she has generated in other performances.
