The Babymakers tries to take elements from a hundred other gross out
raunchy comedies and re-hash it again and try to make it funny.
Instead, it serves to remind us just how unfunny just being crude and
showing nudity can be. There are a group of middle aged men behaving
worse than seven year old kids and if you had a group of talented
comedians behind that premise it might work, you might laugh despite
yourself but no one in this film are talented comedians or actors.
Their performances are downright rotten, wooden expressions and just
plain awful comedic timing. Stupid pretty much describes everything
about this movie. I'm giving it a slightly than zero score simply
because I did laugh once or twice and the insane antics and the last
scene in the film was actually almost cute but watching the rest of
this movie was downright excruciating. How does someone get this crap
Paul Schneider should be ashamed of this film. He has an extensive background in film and this is simply way beneath him and dragged him. He wasn't the worst member of the cast playing the husband trying to give his wife a baby, but he was dragged down significantly. Olivia Munn who I thought was supposed to be a "rising star" as of late looks like a plastic barbie caught in headlights throughout the whole movie. She delivers her lines like a deadpan fish and shows about as much charisma as a wet towel. Kevin Heffernan is Schneider's best friend in the film and despite some mildly funny physical comedy is mostly wasted with stupid lines and even more stupid antics. Director Jay Chandrasekhar plays Ron Jon, the Indian Mafia man they turn to for help. He could have actually been a funny character but he goes for raunchy and stupid the whole time so he is as wasted as everyone else. He should be ashamed for directing this disaster.
Chandrasekhar has a lot of experience as director and writer of all kinds of comedies and TV shows. Its amazing to me that you could direct and co-star in something like this that is so incredibly amateur and think that it was a good idea. This is worse than drivel. It barely passes for entertainment and it certainly isn't funny. Its like watching a group of kids put on a really awful grade school play that happens to be full of nudity, and a constant barrage of stupid masturbation jokes and antics, and a poor attempt at a decent comedy. 3/10
