Storyline

Catherine and Liz want to have a baby - well, Catherine does anyway. Doesn't she realize this will change everything? Probably not. Spending hours on the phone with the sperm bank doesn't leave a lot of time to think about family matters. A humorous drama dealing with the current debate on the very real issue of gay and lesbian couples starting families, IVF programs and the evolving community attitudes towards these changes. A buoyant and entertaining journey through dial-up sperm banks, relationships and baby clothes. Written by Anonymous

Soft and Engaging
5 June 2005 | by tedgSee all my reviews

It is easy to make a movie. Anyone can do it.

To judge from experience, it is harder to make an endearing or engaging one. But there are enough of these as well. This is one.

But as with making a baby, it is easy enough to make one that when you first meet it you fall in love with how endearing and guileless it is. But to give it shape and depth is another thing.

This IS endearing and if that is what you like, I suggest you seek it out.

But the contract we have is to have the filmmaker take us somewhere once they have us by our grins and tears. Lets hope this filmmaker takes advantage of us next time.

Ted's Evaluation -- 3 of 3: Worth watching.
