“Here’s the story of the world’s biggest slut.”
– Christopher Null, FilmCritic.com

Gabrielle Anwar’s gigantic, collagened lips stars in Daddy Who?, a female masturbatory fantasy that is about as unromantic as a romantic comedy can be.

Upon moving to America, Kimberly (Anwar) immediately draws a rise out of four male friends. Since the screenwriters really wanted to connect with the average audience member, their male bonding ritual is rowing. Not football, racquetball, or even competitive grab ass; rowing. Yeah, strike one.

All four of them wind up having sex with Kimberly in a single weekend. Now I’m not the kind of guy who jumps at the gun when it comes to labeling a woman a slut. Most of my friends are female, so I’ve long recognized that women have needs just the same as men. But if a good friend of mine told me she had sex with two men, let alone four, that she had just met, even I would call her a slut. And to her face too. Sure, porn stars certainly have done many more men in shorter periods of time, but at least they’re getting paid for it. The mere fact that this slut is our protagonist makes for strike two.

Turns out Kimberly is pregnant. Apparently none of these men prescribed to the “Bro’s before ho’s” doctrine, as they had all lied to each other about sleeping with her because they had previously made a pact not to. Instead of each individual guy screaming, “You slept with not one, not two, but THREE of my best friends?” and kicking her to the curb before a paternity test can determine if he’s going to be sending her checks on a monthly basis, they all decide to team together to help Kimberly through her pregnancy. Stupidity like this deserves a strike three.

But wait, there’s more. There’s a subplot that makes no fucking sense either. Before Kimberly becomes pregnant, she helps train the four to be better rowers. Thanks to her help they qualify for a semi-local competition. The competition does not happen until the baby has been born. Yes, a nine month wait for some rinky dink little event with a tiny audience watching the festivities. I guess logic goes out the door when you’re looking for a place to stage the dramatic finale. Strike four.

And even though this is a chick flick directed and co-written by a French director whose testicles probably didn’t descend until post-production was complete, Kimberly is an entirely uninteresting character with no depth to stop the audience from calling her a manipulating slut. Most of this is because of the script, but then again, I probably missed something while looking at Gabrielle Anwar’s lips in shock and awe. Strike five for all that garbage.

Not that it matters once a movie has five strikes against it, but I’ll give it a ball one for occasional scenes that actually work.
DVD: Barebones.
