Trailer for 'Reverse Parthenogenesis' starring Amber Benson and Adam Busch. The short film is written and directed by Javier Grillo-Marxuach.

I just. I can't. But I'm happy for them in real life.
Wait...reverse parthenogenesis? What does that even mean? I mean, parthenogenesis, yeah, but...reverse? In what sense is it reversed?
Oh!!!! Javier Grillo-Marxuach is the writer-creator of the awesome series The Middleman! I want to see this.
I like the trailer, and not just because we totally just got a new genome sequencer at work that can sequence a whole genome in less than a day. CRAAZZY, but I guess that's where the technology will soon be headed and then Gattaca won't look so far fetched. Science aside, I'm up for anything made by Javier. Middleman was awesome!

Parthogenesis is the fertilisation of an egg without sperm. So reverse parthogenesis would be fertilisation of sperm without an egg? Not sure that's how it's going to play out, but curious to see nonetheless.
I... Just... What...?
That looks hilarious. :D Did not see that coming.
