  • Summary: Jenn and Matt are best friends from college who are now in their thirties. Fed up with the New York dating scene and single by choice, Jenn spends her days teaching ‘hot yoga’ and running errands for her boss. Matt, unable to get over his ex-boyfriend, has withdrawn into his comic-bookstore job and has stopped pursuing his dream of being a graphic novelist. When Jenn proposes that they have a baby together, it seems like the right idea at the right time. With Jenn being distrustful of fertility doctors, and Matt boastful of being “a guy” and able to have sex with anyone, they decide to fulfill a youthful promise to have a child together…the old-fashioned way. (Wolfe Releasing)

    While Jonathan Lisecki is well in tune with his film's niche market, his knack for comedy, both visual and verbal, is universally hilarious.

    Harris, a talented comic actress who looks more like a real person than a Hollywood facsimile of one, makes every scene she's in shine.

    Gayby doesn't break a lot of new ground in the rom-com or parenthood fields, but its agreeable balance of humor and sentiment makes it worth adopting.

    Gayby isn't groundbreaking, but it's a fun romp whose characters grow on you after spending some time with them.

    The baby angle is really just a hook on which to hang wry commentary about single life in the city, but Lisecki approaches his subject with obvious affection, and the game cast makes most of the sitcom-silly antics work.

    The film develops into a sweet, surprisingly persuasive comedy about friends transitioning into family.

    Inoffensive and low-key, Gayby is too diffuse to have much pop when it comes to the topics at hand: love and friendship, and how unconventional modern permutations might help rewrite the script of romance.
