Fall in love.* Get married. Have a baby. *Not necessarily in that order.
Zoe’s a woman who has a hard time letting anyone into her life. She has a habit of pushing people away when they get close. She also wants to have a baby but because she has no man in her life decides to be artificially inseminated. Shortly after having the procedure she meets a guy named Stan whom she connects with. But she’s still afraid to let him in and when she tells him about her pregnancy thinking he would bail but he sticks with her.
This is a great movie to see with friends, family or a date. It does not disappoint. The funny parts are well acted as are the few moments of serious dialog. I often walk out of a theater feeling like that was an hour and a half of my life I will never get back. Too many crappy endings and just drawn out movies. It’s a let down to see serious faces as after a comedy is over. This is a fantastic upbeat, funny movie that will have you smiling as you walk out of the theater. Be sure to hang around a minute after it’s over so you can see the hilarious out-takes. Jennifer Lopez is picky when it comes to the projects she chooses. I know if she is in it than it’s going to be good. It is a pleasure to see Alex O’Loughlin in the role of the charming and attractive all around "good guy". I get bored seeing the same actors all the time. Alex has really grown as an actor and has great chemistry with Jennifer. Don’t miss out on seeing this film. It’s a feel good comedy that lets you know the good guy is really still out there. Two of the new girl on SNL are in the movie and really carry their own. I was impressed. I learned one thing for certain, that nothing is for certain. Live life moment to moment and enjoy it. It’s nice to see a film that has a quality about it where you can take some of the content and apply it to your own life and the decisions you make. It’s not the same old comedy that Hollywood spits out every year. It’s worth seeing.
