This low-budget comedy tackles big issues such as infertility, surrogacy, and alternative family forms with mixed success. Depth and character development are given short shrift in favor of quirky details. Still, Nisha Ganatra’s first feature has an appealing artistic flair (the lead lesbian surrogate a henna artist and photographer), some clever dialogue, several unique peripheral characters, and enough funny scenes to make it an interesting sliver of modern urban life. And you have to love that title. [us, 2000]
