A Good Man Is Hard to Find

Synopsis: A look at African-American family life in the United States.
Genre: Drama, Romance
90 min

What do Mo and Trish not want

the whole neighborhood to know?

Gerald is donating sperm

to our lesbian friends

- so they could have a baby.

- Please, Helen!

I know a place that gives you

70 bucks a visit.

Paid for my truck and the

boat that's hitched to it.

- That's a lot of visits.

- 70 dollars?

Did I hear you say you're

giving Mo and Trish a baby?

- We're not sure...

- Yes!

If you give it to them, Gerald,

you can't take it back,

like the watering can.

Hey, if you guys

are just giving out babies,

I'll take one. A child

will solve all my problems.

Go, go! Ubuntu needs

a new pair of clogs!

I win!

- Grampa, call our bookie!

- I'm on it.

Mom, dad, grampa's teaching me

how to invest in horses.

Gambling on animals?

Real men will gamble

on anything.

Charlie, I never gamble.

My point exactly.

A real man grabs life

by the jabordnicks.

He starts the day on the floor

of the drunk tank

and ends it on a bed

in a bordello.

He gets a hernia,

and he doesn't get it treated

- until his stomach drops

out of his thigh. - Cool.

A real man gives lesbians his

seed to father a child for them,

- like Gerald is doing for

Mo and Trish. - Helen!

That's so awesome!

No, it isn't!

Strippers are awesome!

I'm gonna have

a little half brother!

I need to make him a card.

Are you sure that being

a donor for Mo and Trish

is the right thing to do?

Gerald, this is the perfect

way to show Ubuntu

that real manhood

is not about selfishness

but about selflessness.

You'll get absolutely

no pleasure,

but potential


Talk about leading

by example, huh?

- Well, that does sound right.

- Helen! This should interest you.

The Greenville Art council

just tapped me to curate

this year's irreverent

and courageous...

Gerald is giving his sperm
