The Baby Formula restores my faith in the mockumentary. I love this film!
9 November 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Athena & Lilith are determined to have babies...together...or should I say...each other's.

Director Alison Reid has crafted some outrageously humorous scenes from the film's concept AND she has managed to bring some genuinely heartfelt and heartbreaking moments to the screen with this hugely successful first feature film from what promises to be a director to watch.

Reid has also quite cleverly decided to play a bit of hide-and-seek with the audience, seeding just enough doubt about what's actually taking place, to keep the audience interested and engaged. It's a keen wink to the making of documentaries in a time when it seems everyone is waiting to grab hold of their 15 minutes of fame, and it's becoming increasingly difficult to separate reality TV from it's scripted counterpart.

The Baby Formula is a sly, intelligent comedy that will keep you laughing till the bitter end.

I'm in love with this genre again!
