A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, and a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the Last Twinkie and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
The comedy "The Babymakers" did not inseminate me with a sheer comedic orgasmic sensation, but it did have its feel good moments. The movie was directed by Jay Chandrasekhar, who also helmed the 2011 cult hit "Super Troopers". And undoubtedly, he needed some super troopers for "The Babymakers" ride as the film did include some extreme gross out moments. The movie stars Paul Schneider as Tommy Macklin, a suburban professional who is married to the beautiful Audrey, portrayed by the beautiful Olivia Munn. After three years of marriage, Tommy & Audrey decide to plan out a conceived plan of having a baby; however, after 9 months of constant sex, not an embryo in sight. Tommy & Audrey decide to visit a fertility clinic to alleviate Tommy's shooting blanks situation; when its discovered that Tommy has a low sperm count, Tommy goes to all ends (not literally of course) to sperm it out, including planning a heist to a sperm clinic to seize his donated sperm of a few years back. Chandrasekhar's concept of the narrative was enticing and had a few comedic risers throughout the film, but when he incorporated too many silly slapstick scenes it caused it to lose its potency and authenticity. The climax of the movie was not too enthralling either. The supporting players in "The Babymakers" included Tommy's crazy friends; Kevin Hefferman played Tommy's chubby obnoxious pal Wade, and another Tommy peep was the stoned-out Zig-Zag played by Nat Faxon. Chandrasekhar himself has a supporting role in the movie portraying the "over the top" Indian theft-orchestrator for-hire Ron Jon. Peter Gaulke & Gerry Swallow's screenplay of the movie was tough to swallow at times, but then again it did have its good vibrations when it tried not to be so exposing; but then again, it did come from the screenwriter team of "Peter Swallow". Moving right along! The acting of the picture really did not give birth to any performances to laud about, but it did carry on in a mediocre fashion. Sure, somebody should have babysitted "The Babymakers" more to make it a better film, but it is marginally worthy enough for you and your baby to check out; especially if you are into semen, I mean seeing men look silly on film. *** Average
