Storyline

Anne (37) has given up finding a man, who will fit in to her sensible and controlled life. She has therefore decided to get inseminated with a carefully selected sperm donor. But as her hormones get the better of her she realizes that the child may come to resemble the father and possibly get his less flattering characteristics. Anne feels compelled to find the sperm donor and ensure that he is as perfect as she imagines. She begins to stalk him and slowly but surely she gets involved in his life and finds out that he is far from her idea of a perfect man. Against all odds chemistry occurs between them and Anne has to decide between being in control of her life or letting go and see what love brings. Written by Anonymous

Hilarious!
9 September 2017 | by moderator-862-914745See all my reviews

Don't be put off by the low rating, this brilliant film directed by Hella Joof deserves far better. It is a perfect screwball comedy in the tradition of 1930s and 40s classics such as The Lady Eve and Bringing Up Baby. The main characters are Anne, who is a super-organised TV presenter who plans to have a baby on her own and Gordon, who is on the surface a total mess. The director handles everything with a light and elegant touch, and builds up to the climax of chaos which Gordon creates in Anne's life. Mayhem ensues and we're taken on a roller coaster ride whilst the two struggle to figure each other out. We're treated to moments of slapstick comedy, classic movie references, and swift repartee. It's all handled skillfully and with a sure hand by the director and the brilliant actors. Everyone has an amazing time, as I did watching it. I whooped with joy at times and laughed a lot. Absolutely brilliant.
