Directed by Chandrasekhar, The Babymakers is led by Paul Schneider (Lars and the Real Girl) and Olivia Munn (Soderbergh’s upcoming Magic Mike), with all of the Broken Lizard guys – Chandrasekhar, Kevin Hofferman, Paul Soter, Steve Lemme, and Erik Stolhanske – filling out the supporting cast, along with some other Broken Lizard regulars.
The first red band trailer has hit the net, via Collider and Film School Rejects, and it is pretty damn awesome. Schneider and Munn star as a couple trying and failing to get pregnant when they discover Schneider’s swimmers are a little on the slow side. He realises that there’s a bank that still has one good deposit left from a donation he gave years earlier, and when denied access to it, he enlists the help of the Broken Lizard guys to break the deposit out.
A ridiculous premise? Definitely. But is it going to be amazing? No doubt about it.
If you’re a fan of the Broken Lizard guys and their films – Super Troopers, Beerfest, Club Dread, etc. – this is definitely something to get excited about. This first trailer very much earns its red band stripes though, so if you happen to be at work, I’d advise checking back in later. No word yet on a scheduled release date, but hopefully we’ll be getting it here in the UK sometime next year, because this trailer makes it look brilliant, a bit of comedy gold. Enjoy.
