Storyline

Felix (MATTHIAS SCHWEIGHÖFER) is very much enjoying his bachelor lifestyle and feels perfectly happy without a family and children - until his annoying brother Henne (FRIEDRICH MÜCKE) and his honey-loving ferret Karsten move in with Felix. At least Henne divulges his high paying income as a semen donor. Felix follows Henne's lead and his money problems are momentarily solved. During a wild one night stand, Karsten makes an appearance and clamps his teeth down below Felix's belt: From now on, he is sterile. Felix didn't imagine his life without a wife and kids could be this final. Determined, he sets out to find the recipient of his valuable genetic material. After Henne steals his file, Felix is impressed by what he finds: famous sports anchorwoman Maren (ISABELL POLAK) will be the mother of his only child. The problem is that she is about to marry Ralph (TOM BECK). But Felix isn't willing to throw away his only chance at having a family and goes to great lengths to get to know Maren.

Who's your daddy?
2 December 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

It starts off pretty well (and somewhat annoying, but that can be overlooked, especially considering the title of the movie and the first scene we get expectation wise). But it's not going places you'd hope it might go or achieve goals it sets out to reach. And that is not as much the fault of the predictable story, but has more to do with the inability to convey emotions most of the time.

Matthias Schweighöfer seems to be a nice guy and he's very well liked in Germany. I reckon because of his personality and looks. It couldn't really have to do anything with his acting abilities (if you want to call them that). He's also directing this one and the behind the scenes videos show, that he can be energetic and crowd pleasing.

Since this is a German production, it does not skip on the sexual themes/nature of the subject. Something you should be aware of, even though the movie was rated "6+" in Germany, which only shows you how they rate those things here (and I'm saying this without criticism). Unfortunately the same does not apply on other "adult" themes. Watch at your own leisure, but be aware of the downfalls
