Did You Know?


The baby montage was originally 10 different mini scenes with the Omegas and Kegston. Originally the scenes were filmed as "filler" in case there ever needed to be a cleaner transition. Brescia figured that at least one of the scenes would work well, but in post-production decided they worked best tied together. See more »

Excellent story with unexpected Outcome
14 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Light and fun story with a twist takes a story line that is expected and transforms it into an enjoyable well done film appropriate for all. Well thought out, excellent acting and a strong cast makes this all work. Technically done very well with excellent professional scene development and editing. I would recommend this film to all. I expected a repeat of three men and a baby and was surprised to have a well developed story creatively executed. Bravo to the team that put this on and to the story developers. Loved to see Frau as principal. Editing was sharp and smart! I would love to see a follow on ! I generally think these plots head into trouble that leaves an uncomfortable childish feeling. This film masterfully avoided the usual pitfalls and created both the mystery of who's baby was it but of the deception of the other frat house. it is in this process that the film shows creativity and a genuine plot that stands on it's own. Editing of shots is tight and smart without gaps or scenes that detour the story. All in all very professional job and would recommend this to others.
