After a young playboy finds out he has testicular cancer he learns he has one month until he becomes infertile. Wanting to become a father, he learns he can’t donate sperm. Having his back against the wall and with time now running out, he proceeds to try to procreate as much as possible before his time frame runs out.
This is a movie with a plot that takes a very serious matter and attempts to make it funny. We’ve seen that did before in a very good fashion with 50/50, but this one may fall just a bit short on pulling at our heart strings and making us laugh all within the film’s 96 minute running time. The acting, however, is good and is probably the strongest things going for the movie. Some jokes are funny, some are not. At times the movie seems to hit that note we are looking for, but it isn’t happening all the time. Yet, with all that being the case, the acting stays strong.
While the story at times seems a little bleak and dim, the transfer on the blu-ray follows in a lot of cases. Sure, we have details, but the film never really amazes or pops in HD. Still, it isn’t an awful film by any means and it certainly isn’t an awful disc. The movie just doesn’t do as well as it could have done given the subject matter.
