It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from the Broken Lizard comedy troupe. Their last film The Slammin’ Salmon was a flop, nowhere near the success of Super Troopers, or even Beerfest. But they are back with a new film and according to Variety, we can see it this summer. Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar, The Babymakers has been picked up by Millennium Entertainment.
The studio behind films like Rampart and Puncture plan to make it available on VOD starting July 3rd and then theatrically beginning on July 27th. Starring Paul Schneider, Olivia Munn, Paul Schneider, Aisha Tyler, Kevin Heffernan,Wood Harris, Constance Zimmer, M.C. Gainey and Nat Faxon, the film premiered at SXSW to mostly mixed reviews. Check out a synopsis below:
After trying everything to get his wife Audrey (Olivia Munn) pregnant, Tommy Macklin (Paul Schneider) realizes to his horror that he may be “shooting blanks.” Terrified that his marriage may fall apart, Tommy recruits his friends (and an Indian ex-mobster) to rob a sperm bank where he made a deposit years ago. As with any half-baked scheme, everything can and does go wrong, testing the limits of Tommy and Audrey’s relationship. THE BABYMAKERS is a hilarious twist on the heist film genre, a laugh-out loud comedy showing how far one couple will go in hopes of creating a new life.

Composer Nathan Johnson is a master at making off-beat and imperfect instruments sound distant yet accessible on a number of vastly different narratives (see: Brick, The Brothers Bloom, Looper). His latest work is a pair of scores for films that were both released this month, Jake Paltrow‘s neo-western Young Ones and the journalistic thriller Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner. Johnson has also been producing a couple albums and […]
