A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, and a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the Last Twinkie and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
"The Babymakers" is a comedy with an odd story, but it is not really the type of comedy that will have you burst out laughing hard. That being said, then I am not saying that the movie is bad, far from it. It is the type of comedy that makes you feel good, and does manage to make you smile from time to time, just don't expect to be laughing so hard that tears will run down your cheeks.
The story is about married couple Audrey (played by Olivia Munn) and Tommy (played by Paul Schneider), who is trying to get pregnant, but after nine months of trying, there still is no baby. But in his younger days, Tommy, donated sperm every week for twenty weeks. And now being told that his sperm count is low, Tommy decides to do whatever it takes to get his good sperm back and make his wife pregnant. Together with his two friends Zig-Zag (played by Nat Faxon), Wade (played by Kevin Heffernan) and hired professional Ron Jon (played by Jay Chandrasekhar), the guys come up with a plan to break into the sperm bank.
I wasn't really laughing a lot throughout the movie, though the storyline was great and there was some nice dialogue and good moments. In fact, I was only really laughing twice. The first time was when Tommy was in the clinic and accidentally turned up the volume on the video. The second laugh was at the scene where Wade had to grab the sperm container on the top shelf. Sure it was very predictable what would happen, but it was just hilarious to watch that scene, being oh-so slapstick comedy in itself.
They had really put together a good group of actors and actresses for the movie, and people really played their characters quite well. Personally, I thought that Jay Chandrasekhar did the most impressive job in this movie.
"The Babymakers" had a very unique storyline, and that made the movie stand out, despite it not really being all that funny. Still, if you like comedies, and haven't seen "The Babymakers" yet, it is well worth watching. However, I don't see this movie as the type of movie that you will pick up again at a later time for a second watching.
