An English comedy produced and directed by Vadim Jean and Gary Sinyor and written by Sinyor and Michael Normand, about a young Jew who discovers he's the product of artificial insemination and that his true father, thanks to mixed-up test tubes, is actually a Yorkshire pig farmer. Made by the production company of Monty Python's Eric Idle, also responsible for A Fish Called Wanda, this is a stab at humor that fails (I didn't laugh once) thanks to the collective direction, which never seems confident about where to put the camera and is less than assured about timing. The dizzy plot developments have their possibilities, however, and the cast—including Mark Frankel, Brian Glover, Maryam D'Abo, Gina Bellman, Janet Suzman, David De Keyser, and Connie Booth—does what it can.
