The comedy involves an attractive couple facing the approach of middle age and trying to make a baby. She’s a successful professional; he’s been laid off and, to the detriment of his pride, may wind up being a house-husband for a good long while. Baby-making isn’t so simple, so they’ve gone to a fertility clinic. It turns out that their problems might not all be biological after all. He’s stressed by the way he feels treated by his wife, and with only four hours to get his sperm in the cup, he is unable to perform. When his domineering wife and an exquisite young nurse come in to diffuse the situation, things get out of hand.
Behind the plot is an examination of modern sexual roles and the conflict that men and women have with their liberated status, especially given changing contemporary perspectives on biological and traditional roles. Husband and wife must come to terms with evolving expectations in order to make a harmonious family.
