Storyline

John and Dean Solomon may have Ph.D.s, but they're socially inept after their widowed father home-schooled them in Antarctica. When their beloved dad falls into a coma, they hatch a plan to revive him using a positive emotional shock - giving him a grandchild. They find a surrogate mom through Craig's list - she's Janine, a penniless local musician, with a large, intimidating boyfriend, James. The pregnancy gives the Solomons nine months to learn to be parents. In a side story, John pursues Tara, a neighbor who takes care of their dad when John and Dean are out; but she has no interest in John. Can the boys keep Janine and James happy, keep dad alive, and learn to be dads? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

a new version of the dumb and dumber movies
29 June 2008 | by MLDinTNSee all my reviews

This movie reminded me a lot of Dumb and Dumber. Two dumb brothers that have no luck with the ladies decide they need to have a child for their comatose father. They are annoying and quite disgusting at times. This movie was not laugh out loud funny, but was amusing at times. I really liked the airplane banner at the end. That was funny. In the beginning they buy women groceries in hopes of getting phone numbers. But no such luck. One of the brothers ask a woman to marry him on the first date. They just don't get the dating game. But of course think they are cool. There were many more silly things throughout the film.

FINAL VERDICT: This is for people who like all those silly Jim Carrey films. So check it out, if you fall in that category.
