Gayby
USA, 2012, 89 minutes, SD
Sex with your best friend has never been this reproductive.
Gayby Synopsis

Jenn and Matt are best friends from college who once made a pact. Now in their thirties, Jenn is a hopeless single, spending her days teaching ‘hot yoga’ and running errands for her boss and Matt turned out to be her gay best friend. Unable to get over his ex-boyfriend, Matt has withdrawn into his comic-bookstore job.


When Jenn decides to hold Matt to his promise of having a baby with her, it seems like the right idea at the right time. With Jenn untrusting of fertility doctors, and Matt boastful of being “a guy” and able to have sex with anyone, they decide to fulfill a youthful promise... the old-fashioned way.


Hilarious and witty, Gayby follows the pair as they navigate the unexpected snags along the way in attempting to get their lives back on track and the trauma of preparation for parenthood. This is the Will and Grace for a new generation – sex with your best friend has never been so reproductive.

Based on a short film of the same title, this flick had the attention of not only  the gay population but from everyone as well! Director and writer Jonathan Lisecki profoundly depicts a gay comedy film in an honest to goodness, charming, not so discreet but heartwarming way. A woman in her 30's wanting to have a baby is realistic truth but the film's plot is genuinely with a tasteful twist. The lead characters were impressive, it's a given, but for me it was director Lisecki (he portrayed the role of Nelson) who stole the show,  he always manages to shine in every scene he's in. Quirky and with commendable set design despite the indie budget, it's always enlightening to be watching films like these that give out a positive vibe and in a way does its role of bridging the gap amongst genders. Highly recommended!

This is a funny take on  having a baby in a most unconventional way! I just got a little, er, really, distracted with the big eyebags of the character Jenn here.  I noticed that in almost all of the scenes, she has droopy eyebags that make-up enough can't seem to hide it.  The story is engaging, but I just got really distracted with the eyebags. Nevertheless, Harris and Wilkas were great and the duo had chemistry as best friends who try to fulfill a pact they agreed upon while they were younger. The support cast was impressive and their awkward intimate scenes were funny yet tastefully handled. So save for the eyebags that I notice too often,  I'd still have to say this is a film worth checking out!

Can't help laughing with this indie film that stars Harris and Wilkas as best friends.  Refreshingly original and quirky,  it's about a woman who's desperate to get pregnant and a promise by her best friend Matt, who's gay, turns out to be the best option, after few unsuccessful attempts with other men.  Harris is naturally funny and this theater regular should be doing more films, including mainstream ones, in the future.  I was wondering why she's always seen with big eyebags in this film and found out she was simultaneously doing the Silence run in theaters while filming Gayby, a really admirable feat. This is clearly a well-received film at various film fests with the lead actors and the director, Jonathan Lisecki, clinching awards from the Ashland Independent Film Festival. Worth watching, guys!

  • I'd have to say this one has a queer story to tell and the acting performances of the actors are commendable.
