Critic Reviews for Miss Conception

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

Graham is charming, but Miss Conception is a cloddish biological-clock bedroom farce.

Jun 6, 2008 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Miss Conception isn't so much a movie as an extended sitcom -- it looks like one, it acts like one, it reduces everything to the lowest common denominator like one.

Jun 6, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Eric Styles and writer Camilla Leslie have made a punishingly unfunny trifle about sex, love and maternity in which both women and men are flatter than magazines--walking, talking issues of Lady's Home Journal and Maxim.

It feels more like a small-screen distraction.

Jun 6, 2008

A film that views heterosexual relationships with the sensitivity of a beer commercial.

Jun 5, 2008

Miscast and miscalculated, Miss Conception hopes to collect on Hollywood's recent baby-on-board craze, delivering instead the least credible take on human pregnancy since Arnold Schwarzenegger gave birth in Junior.

Audience Reviews for Miss Conception

Miss Conception tells the story of an attractive young woman Georgina (Heather Graham) who finds out that she only has 4 days left to conceive. . The problem is that her longtime boyfriend (Tom Ellis) has no desire to be a daddy, and after getting into a fight with him, Georgina is forced to look elsewhere for sperm-donor options. This leads to some funny situations as she sets about luring a man (and a turkey baster) to make her pregnant. Heather Graham is obviously miscast here because I find it extremely hard to believe that despite being beautiful and the boss of some macho construction workers she would find it as hard as she did to get a donor for her baby.

Considering this sounded so icky I did not even want to watch it,, I was quite pleasantly surprised. First 20 minutes or so didn't really like it, but it does get quite amusing further in. Ending of course is totally predictable and a bit vomit inducing, but to be fair, it is all in the title - there was never any other way this could end.. Heather Graham also does a reasonable English accent in this and is very likeable. Not bad for light viewing and a few laughs.

Fairly predictable movie. I was actually bored during it and I'm amazed that I finished it. I thought it might be funny because of the humorous premise so I gave it a chance. It was mostly just a stupid waste of time.
