I had it. I had pitched the perfect game, and I had to screw the whole thing up. My mother saw the whole thing on TV.
She must have been surprised to find out that you had a male lover.
No. She said she always suspected it. She told me we would make a lovely couple.
And your kids?
They think it's cool.

Don't believe the genre and go into this one thinking its a comedy. Yes, the premise that a person could actually donate sperm so many times and the number of kids to whom he now is the biological father is kinda funny. But, apart from a few scenes that are really funny, it felt to me at least a more deep movie.
The story is pretty basic, a guy (Vince Vaughan) who has donated his sperm some 690 times discovers that he is now the biological father of 593 kids who are suing in order to obtain the identify of the man who goes by the pseudonym "Starbucks". In the midst of all this, Starbucks' girlfriend (Cobie Smulders) is pregnant and wants to know if he can actually make a commitment to a family. The story then revolves around the emotional decision that Vince Vaughan has to make and what makes him make those decisions.
Bottomline, a good movie which will be entertaining, but not a comedy at any level.
