Let’s face it, if you can’t knock up former “Attack of the Show” hostess Olivia Munn, you’ve got issues. That’s apparently the basis for “Super Troopers” guy Jay Chandrasekhar’s latest comedy “The Babymakers”. I’m assuming this is a raunchy comedy. It does involve sex and Olivia Munn and sperms, after all. Lots and lots of talk of sperm, in fact. I seem to recall a pretty raunchy Red Band Trailer from last year, that we were asked to remove after posting it. Almost six months later, here’s the official trailer, which is rated Green Band for your safety. It looks okay, I guess. I didn’t laugh once, though, but maybe that’s just me.
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 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 and showing how far one couple will go in hopes of getting pregnant.
Starring Paul Schneider, Olivia Munn, Kevin Heffernan, Wood Harris, Nat Faxon, Aisha Tyler, and Jay Chandrasekhar.
The babymakers hit theaters and VOD August 3, 2012.
