Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie, which features a male character who becomes pregnant, is probably not for younger kids who are still asking, "Where do babies come from?" Some kids might also be disturbed by the fact that chimpanzees, which are used in fertility experiments in the film, are shown in cages in a laboratory. However, the movie does not depict any animal abuse, unless one counts the fact that the chimps had to co-star in a mediocre film.
- Sexual Content
- A woman and man kiss, and later are interrupted while they're making out on a couch. The woman later suggests that they have sex, which occurs off-screen. A shelf of porno videos is briefly seen in a fertility doctor's office. It's understood that the videos are there to help men submit their sperm samples.
- Dr. Hesse throws another character across a room. One scene shows a doctor injecting a long needle into a man's abdomen. During two separate childbirth scenes, a little blood is seen on a suction tube and on a newborn infant's head.
- A few curse words, such as "s--t" and "bastard."
- Social Behavior
- In general, characters have their hearts in the right place, but they occasionally do questionable things in the name of a higher purpose. For instance, two doctors ignore an FDA decision and secretly test an experimental fertility drug on a human. One of them steals a frozen egg from another scientist's cryogenics research project. However, characters overall take responsibility for their actions.
