I really wasn’t going to bother reviewing this movie as it doesn’t warrant space on this blog.
It’s by no means a bad film, I just don’t enjoy viewing it.
It has the makings of a good film, actors and storyline both sound promising but I don’t warm to a single one of the five main characters.
The two children of a lesbian couple are curious to find their sperm donor father now that one of them is of age. A notion I find most odd if he is just a sperm donor and not an active participant in child breeding. Indeed an adoption took place but then I’ve never been in that position so have no idea what it may feel like.
The ‘two Moms’ at the heart of it (the excellent Annette Bening and Julianne Moore) are both irritating . The combination of the controlling doctor (Bening) and the less confident unsuccessful business starter (Moore) does seem to work but clearly all is not rosy.
(The adults are all appear likeable at the start and then they start screwing up. Literally. The teens are teens and so by their very nature are not there to be liked in the first place.
The acting and production are great and it has some funny moments but I guess I just don’t like the story.
