Synopsis

Brothers John and Dean Solomon are on a quest to find a woman--any woman--willing to bear their child and fulfill the wish of their dying father. After a few dating disasters, it looks as if the brothers may beat the odds and find what they're looking for when Dean meets a woman eager to have his baby. Unfortunately, she is flattened by a passing bus right before his eyes. Undeterred, the single-minded brothers change tactics, ditching conventional dating to try their luck with, in short succession, a street hooker, an adoption agency and finally, the Craigslist website. Their online ad quickly attracts a response from Janine, who agrees to be a surrogate mother for their child--for a hefty fee. Janine's pining ex, James, is none too thrilled about her decision, but a trip to the fertility clinic ensues and before long Janine is with child. As the pregnancy progresses and the brothers embark on an ill-advised self-study course in parenting, Janine finally begins to warm to the brothers' earnest enthusiasm. Even James, with whom she is now reunited, can't help but laugh at their antics. Perhaps they will make decent dads after all. But as the birth date looms, Janine gets cold feet and vanishes. For the first time, the brothers' tireless optimism flags and it occurs to them that--despite the double Ph.D.s they each earned during their home schooling days in the North Pole--they might be losers after all. But rather than give up, the tenacious siblings decide to do everything within their power to find Janine and fulfill their father's wish.
