105 minutes

A Los Angeles lesbian couple with two teenage children conceived by artificial insemination are flabbergasted when the kids seek the original sperm donor. Standard family comedy with a clever sex twist; neither as funny nor as groundbreaking as everyone seems to make it out to be, but with performances so good they're worth alone the price of admission.
