So many laugh out loud moments in this film, I was shocked to see the low ratings which is why I felt the need to write this review otherwise you could miss out on a gem of a comedy.
Firstly the gags are perfectly executed and all the actors did a fine job. It starts off with a couple who decide to have a baby but soon realize they are having trouble conceiving. All their friends and family get involved some way or another. A third of the way in we are introduced to a thief (played by Jay Chandrasekhar) who just propels the comedy even further as they decide to break into a sperm bank. One of the funniest movies I've seen in ages. Highly recommended check it out.
Some sloppy sitcom and a few fun moments
Tommy (Paul Schneider) and Audrey Macklin (Olivia Munn) are reasonably happy at their three year anniversary. They decide to try for a baby. Nine months later, they still can't get it done. He's surprised that his swimmers aren't swimming. He had donated sperm to buy her an engagement ring 5 years ago. There is only one batch left and it's already been sold. He needs to rob the sperm bank.
The movie has to overcome some down beats of a troubled marriage and failure to conceive. It doesn't make it easy for the jokes to get laughs. Schneider is a good straight man but he's not an easy broad comedian. Munn starts off with some good chemistry with Schneider. Then the relationship falls apart. The movie could have easily turn them into partners in crime but instead it's a sloppy sitcom. There are some fun moments like the sperm bank deposit but they are the few exceptions.

Some very funny moments
But also some not so funny moments. While it does have some genuine things in the script, it also goes completely crazy in other places. It's almost a shame, but let's focus on the good things. The chemistry between the wife and the husband is good, which is something that is needed, especially later on in the movie.
There are quite a few clichés thrown into the mix and the ending is just crazy (not in a good way). On the other hand, we have a few scenes, that are not as funny as the filmmaker thought they would be. Still a nice little comedy that might work as movie for couples (even if they have the same "problem").
