At age 19, a young woman is jilted at the altar. This leads to a declaration that she will swear off men forever. Now 10 years later, she suddenly decides she would like to have a child. She advertises in the newspaper for potential mates, whether by traditional methods or by sperm donors, but gets nothing but losers. However, two neighborhood men vie for her attention - her gynecologist and a professional clown. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

The quirky supporting characters and breezy script make this a great date movie.
23 April 2000 | by gaylandwSee all my reviews

Once you agree to suspend belief over a few minor points in the script(that the beautiful main character would still be a virgin at 29 and that anyone can pick up orphans off the street and keep them for example) you can curl up with your date and enjoy this breezy romantic comedy. Leila Sweet has rejected love because she was stood up at the altar 12 years earlier. As her sister, Evie,prepares for her wedding, Leila realizes her life is empty and seeks to have a child wihout the muss and fuss of finding someone to fall in love with first. Everyone from her gay uncle and his delightfully cheerful better half, Mammy, to the quirky characters who fill her muffin shop, try to fix her up. The uncles (Gil Rogers and David McCallum) have some of the best lines in the show and are worth a whole movie unto themselves as are the cafe patrons and the dim but likable waitresses. As Leila flounders along in her quest for a baby, she encounters a struggling clown who pops over in a variety of costumes to win her heart. He's charming and a nice guy but he's not the "one" Her gynecologist, Dr. Beverly Kirk, has the hots for her and struggles to keep his cool as he attempts to guide her through her quest for a child. Along the way Leila rescues some kids who are literally dumped on her doorstep. As the wedding plays itself out, Leila realizes she's gotten it all wrong and completely blows her sister's wedding out of the water. All ends well of course or it wouldn't be a comedy. The supporting characters and the New York scenery alone would make it worth a rent. Curl up with a muffin and someone eccentric and watch it.
