And Then Came Love (2007)
By conceiving a child via artificial insemination, hip, modern and thoroughly independent magazine writer Julie Davidson (Vanessa Williams) managed to trim the messy nuptial relationship strings so often attached to starting a family. Imagine her shock, then, when her now-six-year-old son, Jason, demonstrates his growing need for a paternal role model by misbehaving in school. Thus begins Richard Schenkman's gentle romantic comedy And Then Came Love. Julie soon sets out on a quest to find the original sperm donor - youngish, self-effacing actor Paul (Kevin Daniels) - hoping he will take some responsibility for Jason's awry behavior. Father and son do indeed forge a strong relationship; but in Julie's wildest imagination, she never expected to fall in love with this new acquaintance. And Then Came Love reached theaters (in extremely limited release) circa mid-June 2007, and received video distribution almost immediately after. … More

Critic Reviews for And Then Came Love
Ultimately feels as generic as its title.
An earnest cast of talented actors can't save this well-meaning but torturously banal message movie about parental responsibility from poor writing, elementary plotting and pedestrian direction.
Eartha Kitt stands out in this otherwise uneventful romantic comedy.
It's lightweight and reasonable likeable, but there's nothing special about this predictable rom com in which a single mother finds her son's sperm donor and then deliberates on the options that life offers her
For those not willing to buy into mandatory motherhood, there are still a few roles left for women here and there, as dragons ladies, sluts and psychos.
The film falters on many fronts, including truly wooden performances and a thoroughly uninteresting heroine.
Whatever positive, life-affirming story the filmmakers meant to present gets lost amid a crowd of repugnant people.
Entertaining enough as a mildly amusing diversion, even if it might deliver a dubious message to impressionable teenage girls torn between dating a nerdy nice guy and a loser without much of a future.
Turning its back to the feminist movement, And Then Came Love believes to the bottom of its execrable core that single mothers should go the way of the dodo bird.
