Graham is charming, but Miss Conception is a cloddish biological-clock bedroom farce.

Miss Conception isn't so much a movie as an extended sitcom -- it looks like one, it acts like one, it reduces everything to the lowest common denominator like one.

A film that views heterosexual relationships with the sensitivity of a beer commercial.
