To list a few positives regarding this film, Jennifer Lopez accomplishes the job in portraying a young woman named Zoe who sincerely desires to be a mother. Zoe’s parents died long ago and her surviving relative is elderly and Zoe doesn’t want to be alone in the world. She chooses artificial insemination which is controversial for sure. The controversy heightens when she finally meets a man she falls for named Stan (Alex O’Loughlin), and right after the insemination takes place. When he learns she is pregnant, he admits to needing time to really adjust to this conception, let alone a possible life-long commitment. Although this plot device is set up for laughs, and there are a few, there really aren’t that many as this seems to be the lone element the writers depended on.
The theme of adjusting to new situations and growing as a person are well done. Regrettably, there is strong language in the film, as well as frank sexual comments and pre-marital sex, and these issues prevent us from awarding our Dove Seal to the picture as a family-friendly film.
