Tommy (Paul Schneider) and Audrey (Olivia Munn) are very much in love and while celebrating their 3rd wedding anniversary decide to try for a baby. After trying for 9 months without success it starts to put a strain on their marriage so both go to get tested only for Tommy to be told he is infertile.

Once the whole town starts talking about his problem he decides to get back a sperm sample that he donated 5 years before only to be told that the last sample has been sold. He tries to buy it back from the recipients who refuse. Tommy and his dysfunctional friends decide that they will steal the sample back. Once this is decided they hire a crazy ex-mobster from the Indian mafia to help them break into the sperm bank to retrieve his sample and come up with a half-baked plan to get his sample back. With only the crazy Indian and his dumb friends they attempt the heist where things start to go wrong.

Overall, despite the strange storyline I found this to be quite an enjoyable comedy as long as you don’t take it too seriously. Lots of laughs along the way as the hapless thieves attempt their robbery. If you are easily offended then this is not a film for you with some of the gross jokes and scenes.

If you are not easily offended then you will be laughing out loud.

Rating: 4/5
