Movie Info

Harvard-educated biotech executive John Henry "Jack" Armstrong gets fired when he informs on his bosses, launching an investigation into their business dealings by the Securities & Exchange Commission. Branded a whistle-blower and therefore unemployable, Jack desperately needs to make a living. When his former girlfriend Fatima, a high powered businesswoman--and now a lesbian--offers him cash to impregnate her and her new girlfriend Alex, Jack is persuaded by the chance to make "easy" money. Word spreads and soon Jack is in the baby-making business at $10,000 a try. Lesbians with a desire for motherhood and the cash to spare are lining up to seek his services. But, between the attempts by his former employers to frame him for security fraud and his dubious fathering activities, Jack finds his life, all at once, becoming very complicated.

    I will forgive thee Spike. Just don't give me a new version of ambitious-anti-yuppie-elements that includes rivers of tedious blockhead performances and wooden outcomes, oh...and judicial soliloquies. There has to be a slight knowledge in what you're trying to satirize dude, that is: corporate misconducts.

    Spike Lee is aiming for too many things here, in some is a hit, in others are a miss. The first half builds up around the usual relationships stuff, then the second half forgets about the first and goes into a socio-political-commentary rampage. Also the movie depends on just way too many wishifull thinking and "happy coincidences" to work properly and be convincing. If only Spike cut it off the political stuff, his movies would be actually a lot better. John Turturo's character, and all his dialogues and scenes were like if Spike was doing a parody of Do the Right Thing.

    Spike Lee tries to mix strawberries with mashed potato. It doesn't work

    Lol well this is one of the weirdest unique movies ive ever seen. Main plot is that a guy broke up with his love of his life because she went lesbian.The a year or so later she comes to him to get her and her partner pregnant . Then a business comes out of it, of Lesbians coming to this man and getting them pregnant by having sex... Not using fetilaty drugs or anything with leads to awkwardness. The plot is fast going and steady, its interesting to see a bunch of different women wanting to be induced by this stranger for 20000 dollars a pop. Did the sperm bank go out of business? This film also reminded me of a high class whore movie. It had a well balanced plot which I was surpised about, it didnt seem like a cheap poorly made film at all.
