Jay's direction is better than his performance
30 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie and before I watched it I thought I'd check what the masses thought and I almost didn't watch the movie because of all the negative reviews. The only thing I could hope for is that it would be one of those movies like The Road to Wellville where a lot of people who are very uptight about there bodies can't handle the bawdy humor. Well, that's what happened. The Babymakers is very funny, well paced, the characters are likable and humor ranges all over the place, it's in the dialog, the visuals and the timing. I'd have to say this is one of the more likable comedies along with Role Models, Office Space, Away We Go, Sex Drive, Walk Hard and luckily it's not at all like Wedding Crashers, Bridesmaids, Good Luck Chuck or The Hangover.

The one big change I would have made was to keep Jay behind the camera and if his character was really necessary it would have played funnier with Gerry Bednob.

I wasn't going to watch this movie because all these negative reviews made me think I would see a big failure of Jay's direction and that wouldn't be any fun at all. Jay's direction is terrific.

And for reference, I'm offended by the toilet humor in Enchanted but I think the toilet humor in Not Another Teen Movie is hysterical. It's a matter of propriety. It's not right in Enchanted. It's fine in NATM. What's done in this movie is just fine for it.
