The Babymakers absolutely BOMBED at the box office. And after watching this movie last night, I can see why it did so bad!
Here’s the premise of the movie:
After trying everything to get his wife Audrey (Olivia Munn) pregnant, Tommy Macklin (Paul Schneider) realizes to his horror that he may be “shooting blanks.” Terrified that his marriage may fall apart, Tommy recruits his friends (and an Indian ex-mobster) to rob a sperm bank where he made a deposit years ago. As with any half-baked scheme, everything can and does go wrong, testing the limits of Tommy and Audrey’s relationship.
With Jay Chandrasekhar at the helm and Olivia Munn in the starring role, I was expecting non-stop laughs. Unfortunately, the movie didn’t deliver at all.
As one critic describes it: “The Babymakers” is amazing in its complete lack of comedy, nearly satirical in its rejection of levity and full-on embrace of mediocrity.
Such a disappointment..
