The couple want to have children, but it turns out that Ed is infertile. Then one day they see a set of quintuplets on television belonging to a couple in Arizona. Desperate for a child of their own, they decide to drive over to the family's house and kidnap one of the babies.

This movie has some pretty funny parts and overall is a decently funny movie. In particular, it's funnier than than Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

While the ending is open to interpretation, I took it quite positively.


Overall, I would recommend anyone watch this comedy at least once. Personally, I plan watch the movie again, because I think there will be something special to be gained from watching it a second time.
