One More Try Deserves A More More Try, Please!

I laughed out loud after reading the statements below because I got confirmation that I was not alone in my wondering thoughts . My wife and I watched the movie "One More Try" starring Angelica Panganiban, Dingdong Dantes, Angel Locsin and Zanjoe Marudo last Friday night at SM Megamall Cinema 7.

Though we loved their acting very much, I however was a little dubious of the "technicalities" associated with the film.

Were the facts accurate? Was the natural method of fertilization the only resort to make a baby, and save the life of a child?

Read the following posts below:

Things I've 'learned' from watching "One More Try":

(1) Natural copulation has higher success rates than in vitro fertilization despite the fact that multiple ovulation can be induced for the IVF process. And that once an IVF has failed, you can no longer resort to one more try and you're left with no other option but natural intercourse.

(2) International bone marrow match registries do not exist anywhere around the world. It is therefore more practical for a patient with no HLA match in the family to wait for an IVF sibling for which there is only 25% chance of getting a match.

(3) A very young baby can donate his bone marrow.

(4) A child needs to be legally adopted by capable adults before he can receive visa for medical treatment abroad.

Do filmmakers really have to sacrifice scientific, medical and legal correctness to come up with the best picture?

It would have been better if it did more research on the actual facts to make it realistic. At the end, it was a happy ending feel-good movie. Could it have been better if it included a cliffhanger or an unanswered question so that the audience were left hanging around for a sequel?
