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.
Darcy: [narration] Of course, there is such a thing as a false pearl.

Jake Weber was terrific!
23 April 2000 | by (Ventura, CA) – See all my reviews

Overall, I enjoyed this movie. I thought that Jake Weber did an excellent job as the shy but obviously love bitten ob/gyn, Dr. Beverly Kirk. He was sweet, a little wistful but brave enough to keep trying because he really felt that he was meeting a very good thing [Leila Sweet]. While I wish the producers hadn't cut some of the scenes where he gave a little more personal detail of his character while at the bar, I think viewers will still be able to see that Jake makes a perfect leading love interest.
