Radha Mitchell and Jon Dore play a couple who want a child but can't conceive one. Conveniently, Mitchell's Tourette Syndrome suffering best friend, played by Michelle Monaghan, just got knocked up from some dude she met in a bar. So why not have the baby and give it to your friends in need? The premise is alright, but this dysfunction-laden dramedy from first time writer/director Jessie McCormack doesn't know what it wants to be. It's not funny. It's not dramatic. It is quirky, but not in a good way. And none of the performances or characters feel real. It's a total misfire.
Who is this movie for? No one. It's too poorly put together for anyone to waste ther time. For much better dysfunctional family drama, see August: Osage County instead.
