This fairly tepid early 80s comedy stars Burt Reynolds as the bachelor manager of Madison Square Garden in New York. He sucks at relationships but loves kids, and after a lengthy search he settles on signing a baby contract with waitress Beverly D'Angelo. No relationship, no emotions, just produce a baby and split. Wanna bet they eventually fall in love?
Random fact: Reynolds once called the film "one of my favorite pictures". This is the same man who fired his agent after he finished filming Boogie Nights.
Paternity has never been released on DVD, and as the film plays out there are some obvious signs as to why. On at least a couple of occasions homosexuality is put on the same level as sadomasochism and necrophelia, and there's one lengthy scene where rape is somewhat comically bantered around like it's no big deal.
If those aren't the reasons, then maybe they just couldn't get the rights to the Razzie award winning theme song, which is simply putrid. (In fact, it's so bad it doesn't even seem to exist on the internet.)
