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?

Not all that bad...

OK, so it's not brilliant, but it is funny in places. There are several points that I don't feel further the plot, but it's pretty funny.

And yes, it's predicable as hell, because there was very little other way it could have been really and still have kept the idea going. I think it's just one of those things you could watch with a few mates and enjoy.

If you like Kris (how it pains me to type that with a K) Marshall, then you'll like this. I don't fully understand why they cast a lead in an Irish set film as someone who is as far as I remember a rather posh English man, but the acting is believable, and the accent is generally good, although there are some points where it just seems to fly out of the window.

I don't think people would get the black humour in this movie unless they were relatively familiar with the conflict in Northern Ireland, but it does have moments of completely stupid, and yet amusing jokes.

The problem is, that the characters seem a little wooden, and their reactions are not always brilliant. But it's a pretty sweet film, and it's got a good message I guess.

Worth a watch at least.
