My Baby's Daddy
Source: Catholic News Service
Standard male-incompetence comedy about three lifelong buddies (Eddie Griffin, Anthony Anderson and Michael Imperioli) from the streets of South Philly, whose girlfriends all announce that they are pregnant at the same time, forcing them to give up their hard-partying bachelor ways and become responsible adults. Directed by Cheryl Dunye, the film's heart is in the right place, but its crude sexual humor considerably coarsens the story's otherwise entertaining, though shopworn, men-and-dirty-diapers premise. But the narrative's ultimate affirmation of fatherhood and its encompassing responsibilities prevents the film's lewd tone from being outright offensive. A few sexual encounters, much crass humor and language, a minor lesbian subplot including a same-sex kiss, some drug references and ethnic stereotyping. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
