    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The big disappointment of The Babymakers is that it doesn't come close to being worthy of its two stars, Paul Schneider and Olivia Munn. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    How does a comedy troupe even get from the frat-humor antics of "Beerfest" to the middle-class suburbanality of Babymakers? Well, everybody gets old eventually. Growing up, on the other hand, is optional. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Utterly clueless about its tone and has no idea how relentlessly it is undercutting itself. By the time we arrive at the obligatory happy ending, which is perfunctory and automatic, I felt sort of insulted. If Chandrasekhar thinks his audience will laugh at his vulgarity, why does he believe it requires a feel-good ending? show more

    Tom Russo Boston Globe

    The squirminess stands out here because there's so little going on the rest of the time. show more

    You may find sperm jokes hilarious, but it's doubtful you'll find them hilarious in The Babymakers, which has serious composition problems. show more

    Andrew Schenker Slant Magazine

    A safe, laugh-free exercise that gets to have its fun, such as it is, because it's all in the service of the most conservative notions of domestic normality. show more

    New York Post

    In a culture where Anderson Cooper is out and gay-inclusive shows like "Modern Family" are wildly popular, a dud like Babymakers doesn't even find sticking power in its offensiveness. It just wipes off. show more

    Time Out New York

    Munn has proved on TV that she has solid timing, but she does little here other than look pretty and, when the plot calls for it, outraged. As for the likable Schneider, the "All the Real Girls" actor demonstrates that he's better off as a straight man than as a physical comedian. show more

    Total Film

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

    Arizona Republic

    Not even the snickering juvenile who lives in the deepest gutters of your brain will get a cheap thrill out of these antics. show more
