Quotes

[first lines]
Voice over: We have survived on this planet for five million years. Today, we face extinction. Male sperm counts now are in freefall, the average man now producing less than half the sperm their grandfathers did in their prime. Are we witnessing the beginning of the end for the human race? Are we doomed? Every day I ask myself this question: Where might we find a superman, a new Adam, to reverse the decline of the fertile man?

Helping the less fortunate can be fun.
29 July 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It's a well-known fact that around the world the sperm count in the human male is on the decrease. Eamon (Kris Marshall) a red-headed Irish Catholic after due consideration decides with the help of his mother he could help some of the couples who desperately want children. Like a door-to-door salesman he delivers the goods and the wives are ecstatic as they soon become pregnant. Eamon in his simple way considers he is helping to build up the ailing population and even the church authorities give him their blessing as he produces more catholics.

This is a somewhat immoral tale but in the same way that they say sex should be fun this film approaches the subject of sex and fertility in a light-hearted and humorous way. It does tend to become a little repetitive as he goes about knocking on the neighbours' doors. Eamon seems to enjoy the work and he agrees with his mother that money can be made out of this rewarding exercise. But when he falls in love, his attitude changes. And why not? He now has new duties.

The ending is rather predictable when the camera roams among the many babies.....all red-headed, of course!
