Made me laugh, made me care and didn't insult my intelligence. It's almost as fun as making a baby yourself.

Preposterous, inane and silly, but outrageously funny.

Viewers may suspect the filmmakers have no clue about the actual operation of fertility clinics and sperm banks (the plot depends on some pretty dubious practices, particularly involving donor anonymity), but most will be laughing too hard to care.

Delivered with sloppy, gleeful confidence, the movie is smarter than most gross-out comedies but isn't afraid to inspire an "Ewww."

For the creators of "Super Troopers" and "Beerfest," two comedies with devoted followings, "The Babymakers" is a pretty serious setback.

Wants to appeal to the fan base of Broken Lizard desperately, but also wants to service the audience that loves movies from Garry Marshall or Rob Reiner...

The screenwriters started with a great premise and then ran out of ideas, abandoning the more risky, inventive procreation comedy for corny slapstick

What starts as an insightful, bracingly straight-spoken comedy about infertility falls apart in the final act when it diverts into a wacky, under-developed adventure

A romcom that fumbles for heart in the gutter, and finds only glib gags.

Some funny moments but not many, despite decent playing from Mann and Schneider.

It actually gets more stupid the more you think about it.

The plot is content to stay at surface level, never truly working for big laughs when easy ones can be grasped instead.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

A film of limited effort, slowly sealing off its potential the longer it lingers on lackluster comedy in a manner that's become habitual to Chandrasekhar and his cronies.

In short, the movie's not funny enough or serious-minded enough to warrant 95 minutes of your time.

The sole function served by this motion picture is to illustrate how not to frame jokes in movies.

The only moments where The Babymakers provides any kind of comic lift come when talented improvisers like Faxon, Heffernan, Chandrasekhar and Aisha Tyler clearly go off-book and noodle their way into something that's actually amusing.

'The Babymakers' is so uninspired it's depressing.
