Jennifer Lopez as Zoe is desperately wanting to have a child so she decided to have herself inseminated through a sperm bank. Unaware of her pregnancy, she met the “Cheese” guy Stan (Alex O’Loughlin) and they started dating. Until she found out she’s pregnant, complications arose with Zoe apparently carrying twins!

The vibe of the film is the usual JLo Rom-Com flick ala Maid in Manhattan, The Wedding Planner and Monster In Law. The plotline is pretty unusual since the stage of dating to marriage to pregnancy was reversed. There are spot-on moments were Jennifer was really funny and her chemistry with Alex is truly undeniable. It’s a feel good movie but is a bit forgettable.
