Product Description

Everybody loves Jonah (Ryan Kwanten) - especially the ladies. He's young, hot, sharing a cool house with his best friends Gus (Ryan Corr) and Stevie (Sarah Snook), and throwing parties that rock AND keep the bills paid.

Then: that awkward moment when your random one-night-stand asks, is that a lump?

Boom. Jonah's got testicular cancer. His life isn't at risk, but the impending treatment will leave him completely infertile. Jonah realizes, to everyone's shock: he wants to be a dad. His attempts at the sperm bank are a failure. His only choice is natural conception. Within the next four weeks. He's gotta procreate before it's too late.

What follows is a rousing (get it?) parade of ex-girlfriends, mistaken match-ups, surrogate slip-ups and a whole lot of Baby Daddy Drama. Poor Jonah may be out of options - until he starts listening to his friends AND his heart, and realizes that a perfect candidate might be closer than anyone would think.

Like other reviewers, I enjoyed this movie for its simplicity, and light nature. It does not delve too deeply into the heavy emotional burden this scenario could guide a film.

It was kept light, and simple. That's just what I want to watch on a Friday night. Ryan Kwanten does a good job acting out the role which just seems to suit him perfectly. It was interesting to hear him in his native Australian accent.

Cute movie, positive feel good ending. Enjoyable.

Just a nice fun movie, Ryan Kwanten is so different in this movie then he is in True Blood. I think that anyone that like a good happy ending will like this movie.

HASH(0x9e85587c) out of 5 stars Much sweeter than I expected May 10 2013

I thought this would be a very raunchy movie, but it turned out to have more more heart than you would think. Some people might find it slow, but I find that slower indie movies are much more realistic and easier to relate to. I will mention that it might offend some people's sensibilities. Obviously there's sex - an mildly extended blowjob scene, and some tastefully done full on sex scenes in the middle. Obviously premarital sex and babies, and treating reproduction as a business arrangement. Lastly they throw in some cocaine, which I found rather jarring and unnecessary. Still, funny movie with a core that I think a lot of people can relate to.

HASH(0x9e855aa4) out of 5 stars Endearing Fun Film Aug. 1 2014
By Doug Erlandson - Published on
I love these types of movies. Ordinary people. Extraordinary circumstances. Real people facing difficult situations. What do you do?

Here's the story line. Young party guy finds out he has testicular cancer. Once he has surgery he will no longer be able to have children. He loves the idea of having a family.

So young guy tries to find someone, anyone, who will bear a child for him. Finally, his best friend steps up to the plate. She is willing. Not excited about the possibility of being a mother but there are some benefits that seem appealing. So they make a pact and try for a child.

This movie is so entertaining and engrossing that despite the raunchy sex we stuck with it and were rewarded with a wonderfully endearing story and finale. Totally recommend this film. It was far better than we expected.

HASH(0x9e855b88) out of 5 stars Reproductive Sex June 4 2013
By Michael Kerjman - Published on
Format: DVD
Diagnosed with testicular cancer, a weekend-party-arranger stops to play for fun but desperate for a female willing a kid with him to produce as clocks ticked for his surgery.

Personal revelations follow such quest for fulfilling a time-sensitive goal.

It seems, this work, unwittingly, is a good parody on talking of family values and sex-as-pure-reproduction only. Accurate lovemaking-scenes add to run of a screening enriched with swearing and sexism.

HASH(0x9eee8054) out of 5 stars Okay until the ending May 24 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Overall, I liked this movie. It dealt with the polar opposite of what most movies about "baby fever" are focused on. This time it's about a guy who finds out he won't be able to have children and suddenly, he finds himself questioning what he wants out of life.

There were some very predictable parts, but that's to be expected with a movie that's meant to be a rom-com. The character development of Jonah was good through the movie. Like another reviewer stated, there were times that the movie seemed to be slow, but when dealing with the subject matter - it made sense for more "showing" versus telling to happen.

My biggest complaint was the ending. It felt unfinished. Even just a small snippet of Jonah and Stevie in the not-so-distant future would have made it feel complete. Had there been a true conclusion/finale, I would've given it 4 stars.

HASH(0x9e855cfc) out of 5 stars WHY DIDN'T WE HEAR ABOUT THIS JEWEL? July 29 2013

This was a pleasure! Ryan Kwanten has a face and expression that emote such feeling that he hardly has to speak the words. He created Jason Stackhouse and is nothing like that character, yet we love and laugh with him every episode of True Blood. These movies should be more advertised to us happily-ever-after people so that we can relate them to each other and make them a hit. We don't need gratuitous death, just a slightly complicated resolved happy ending. Life is already full of misery. Give us just the right amount of sex and a great epilogue and we'll keep coming back for more. Someone should cast Ryan Kwanten in a hit that showcases his empathy. He would be a major star and I being 62 and not a beefcake groupie, would watch anything in which he starred. Enjoyed this movie thoroughly and would recommend it to all happily-ever-after junkies. (The other two major characters were also perfectly cast.)
