Storyline

John and Dean Solomon may have Ph.D.s, but they're socially inept after their widowed father home-schooled them in Antarctica. When their beloved dad falls into a coma, they hatch a plan to revive him using a positive emotional shock - giving him a grandchild. They find a surrogate mom through Craig's list - she's Janine, a penniless local musician, with a large, intimidating boyfriend, James. The pregnancy gives the Solomons nine months to learn to be parents. In a side story, John pursues Tara, a neighbor who takes care of their dad when John and Dean are out; but she has no interest in John. Can the boys keep Janine and James happy, keep dad alive, and learn to be dads? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Janine: Woah! The only thing you're going to feel yourself inside of is a cold Dixie cup.
Dean Solomon: Well that certainly doesn't make your vagina sound very appealing.

An Average Comedy
3 May 2010 | by jplank1475See all my reviews

I would have given this movie a higher score if kept me laughing throughout the whole film. Don't misunderstand, there are HILARIOUS parts in this movie but as a whole, it deserves an average.

Will Arnet is amazing at being awkwardly hysterical, and I feel he really did his part. Will Forte though just didn't hold up his part of the deal I'm afraid.

One thing I thought was funny was how they are such horrible drivers, they may have hit five cars or so swerving around traffic and nobody said a thing about it. Something subtle like that really makes me laugh.

I must say though, the opening credits were the highlight of this movie. My sides were aching before the movie even started...but the rest of the movie just funny, not side splitting.

Worth a watch for sure
