"...The film has an expert cast whose comic gifts are always complementary. Schwarzenegger's deadpan delivery, DeVito's insistent miniature swagger and Thompson's practiced slapstick clumsiness play off each other in satisfying three-part harmony..."

In order to test an experimental new drug designed to ensure healthy pregnancies, a scientist impregnates himself with a fellow scientist's frozen egg in this high-concept comedy. Academy Award Nomination: Best Original Song.
Upon losing their grant to develop a fertility potion, two male scientists steal an embryo in an attempt to prove their theories correct. The embryo, fertilized, is implanted in the abdomen of Dr. Hesse, who intends to abort it after the first trimester. Instead, the somber Dr. Alexander Hesse starts developing an array of new emotions and insists on carrying the baby to full term. To aid the two doctors in their research, although she does not know what they are really up to, Dr. Diana Reddin helps the two men gain access to the laboratory. In the process, Hess and Reddin fall in love, and Hesse confesses that he is pregnant and with her child. After some initial protest she becomes very supportive. Mayhem follows when Hesse is forced to hide out in a maternity clinic disguised as a woman while being pursued by his former boss.
