Finally, a film for retarded people. Thanks to mentally retarded writer Brennon Jones and visually impaired director Paul Wynne "Makin' Baby" eliminates the problems most retarded people have with following or understanding films, while at the same time puts the average viewer in the shoes of a thousand such retards. If there is a mentally handicapped person close to you, I suggest you rent 'Making Baby', cook up a batch of S'mores, sit back and witness the joy.
The complete disregard for logic or film language make this entertaining romp unforgettable, much like Screech Powers' excellent campaign video for Zach Morris' Presidential bid during the third season of Saved by the Bell...only not as good. But it does have one feature which was blatantly absent from that otherwise perfect master work: MYSTIKAL
Although he does not appear nearly as much as the above the title credit or prominent appearance on both the box and DVD art would have you believe, Mystikal provides the classic one-two punch that fans have begun to expect from the established rapper/rapist. Except that he never raps. Newcomer Robert Van Newkirk shines as Ludwig, Mystikal's ever present companion and implied homosexual mate. His cries of "Hey, shut up over there" are raw and genuine, though he is just as capable of letting his sideburns do the talking. People all over America are already trying to take credit for this discovery, touted by some industry veterans as "not just the next Lorenzo Lamas - but the first Robert Van Newkirk. Period."
Yes, I think we can all expect big things from Robert Van Newkirk, and in 4 to 6 years from Mystikal as well. As for Paul Wynne and Brennon Jones, God bless you guys and keep those chins up. Remember, there's no handicaps in Heaven.
