Storyline

Gabrielle Anwar stars in the romantic comedy DADDY WHO? (aka KIMBERLY). She plays Kimberly, an English girl and daughter of an Olympic rower, who agrees to coach an inept rowing team. The four guys on the team all agree not to try and woo the beautiful Kimberly, but each does so anyway. However, when she ends up pregnant and no one knows which one of them is the father, they all agree to help prepare for the baby's arrival. United by the prospect of fatherhood, the team is able to train for their rowing competition and, along with Kimberly, become a close knit family. Written by Anonymous

Finding Love and Themselves
13 June 2012 | by dansviewSee all my reviews

I like to have someone to root for,even in a romantic comedy. For the first half of this picture, I didn't have that. The woman was a player, the men were either obnoxious idiots, or disengaged losers, and there was little character development to most of them.

That's why I clicked out of netflix at the halfway point. But I wound up giving it another chance the next day and watched the second half. OK, it redeemed itself. Just barely, but I'll give it some credit.

I liked the concept: Four grown buddies who bond over rowing on the Delware River and find both love and themselves.Philadelphia looked absolutely great, if that's where it was actually filmed.

There were some questionable morality issues, but they resolved themselves for the most part by the end.

Sean Astin was his usual self. Not much of a stretch there. If you like his general routine, you will like him here. (Carefree, blue collar, slovenly, short guy) Gabrielle Anwar is about 7 years past her prime beauty era from Scent of a Woman and For Love or Money. Now she is also speaking in a British accent, which I think is her normal voice. (she played Americans in those other two films) In this film, she is at times wiry, and shows her age in terms of forehead wrinkles and some anguished facial expressions toward the end. Nevertheless, she is appealing, and you can understand why the guys like her.

I liked the last scene very much. Without spoiling it, you see that the men have found their piece of the happiness pie.
