The Babymakers fails to deliver naturally
6 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

When Broken Lizard burst onto the scene with their cult classic Super Troopers they took comedy by storm. Member Jay Chandrasekhar has not only worked and directed with the group, but also journeyed outside the troupe to take on other projects like his latest The Babymakers. Bringing along fellow Broken Lizard alum Kevin Heffernan, in addition to Olivia Munn, Paul Schneider, and Nat Faxon could he possibly hit the mark with this new comedy or will it end up being a miscarriage?

The Babymakers follows a married couple trying to get pregnant. When they find out that the guy is the one with the issues, he teams up with his friends to hatch a plan to try and retrieve a healthy sperm donation to a sperm bank years ago. First thing to make very clear is that this is not a Broken Lizard movie. Most people will head out to see this with the idea that's what they are going into. With that being said, it still attempts to stick with some of that formula and push the limits at times. There are some really funny over the top moments that deliver and make this film more than just a standard romantic comedy. Everyone does a great job with their respected parts, most notably the Broken Lizard guys Jay Chandrasekhar and Kevin Heffernan. The biggest issue with this film is the chemistry between Munn and Schneider. They both do fine job acting, but they just don't have the chemistry to make you believe their relationship. This makes some aspects of the film feel forced when it should have had more heart to bring together the zany over the top comedy.

This is a better than average R-Rated romantic comedy that will probably entertain guys way more than the ladies, but still not knock it out of the park like it could have. Broken Lizard fans will enjoy the guys doing their thing as it is the highlight of the film.
