I received a digital screener of Making Babies, in order to facilitate this review, however, as always opinions are my own.
If you have watched Shameless you have probably fallen in love with Steve Howey. And while it’s been a few months since I’ve seen it, I still love him, so when I was sent a copy of Making Babies to watch I knew it had to be good. While starting a family is important, sometimes you have to be unconventional, sometimes all it takes is time and patience. But even though you go through all of the motions, sometimes you have to be persistent to make it all work.
Writer/Director: Josh Huber
Cast: Eliza Coupe, Steve Howey, Bob Stephenson, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Ed Begley Jr, and the late Glenne Headly
Katie and John Kelly (Eliza Coupe and Steve Howey) are ready to settle down and have kids but five years later, all they have to show for their efforts is a mountain of negative pregnancy tests and an increasingly elaborate home micro-brewing rig, which John hopes will launch his company. As they run out of traditional options and their window closing, the couple explores the daunting world of medical, spiritual, and homeopathic methods to conceive a child. With an ensemble cast that also includes Bob Stephenson, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Ed Begley Jr., Jon Daly, and the late Glenne Headly, MAKING BABIES puts a couple through the ringer of modern infertility treatments and questions whether their marriage will withstand the ultimate test.
