Genre(s): Comedy

An adorable true story (conceptually)...with several funny moments...but also lots of potty mouth trash talkin' and heavy-handed directing/editing that makes it feel quite forced and false rather than easy and authentic.

Be sure and stay for the two-part stinger, though:

1. Photos and videos of the ten men behind the story.

2. The MTV-like video send-up lampooning Crash Test Dummies' 1983 semi-smash hit Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm.

If only the entire movie had felt like the stinger(s), we'd be walkin' in tall cotton, bro.

p.s.

Semi-spoiler alert coming below (stop reading RIGHT HERE if desired):

 

 

The film makes light of *miscarriage* for perhaps 15 (on and off) agonizing minutes, eliciting a wave of groans throughout our theater. If my merely mentioning this fact has already made you wince, do consider yourself forewarned, as you ain't seen nothin' yet.
