I just saw "Shoot 'Em Up". It was a really silly and violent film and I only watched it because I'm a fan of the main actor Clive Owen. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
Anyway, at the beginning of the film he delivers an infant, and I'm 99% sure it was intact! (Only on screen for a second though, but I'm pretty sure.) The movie was filmed in Canada. I know, it's a small thing and probably nobody noticed, but I was pleased an intact infant was chosen because I've hated how in other films there have been circumcised "newborns". If anybody else has seen this they can hopefully confirm if he was intact or not. I really hope I'm right!<br><br>
The film was also kind of pro-breastfeeding, the main character gets the mother breast feeding, and when she dies he goes off and finds a wet nurse instead of getting formula or anything.<br><br>
Sorry for taking up a thread, I just felt I had to share lol.

Was the baby a newborn? I just saw "Baby Mama" and at least the first baby born was about 3 months old. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Later in the movie, there was a newborn, it seemed, or at least closer to the right age.

In a scene from the Keanu Reeves movie 'Little Buddha', there's a scene of a baby at first stage walking age and since they focus on just his legs, you can <i><span style="text-decoration:underline;">clearly</span></i> see he's intact w/ his penis and testicles hanging down. Then again, the boy in it is of Hindu descent, so naturally he's intact.<br><br><a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0107426/" target="_blank">http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0107426/</a>

<span style="font-family:System;"><span>We just saw Shoot em up too ~ the baby was intact...I even jumped up and said something to Dh about it. You normally do not see that in the movies.<br><br>
I loved the whole scene where he tells the mom to feed junior & she looks at him......it was so funny. I thought the whole wet nurse thing rocked too ~ normally the hero would just run off to find bottles! Oh ~ lets not forget the version of cloth diapers they used!<br><br>
Silly violent movie that as good to watch for other reasons <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:</span></span>

According to IMDb: "Baby Oliver" was cast before he was even born. The producers chose a woman who was pregnant with twin boys who would deliver about the time filming began so the baby would genuinely be a newborn baby, as his character is.<br><br>
I didn't notice the baby in "300" but glad he was also intact.

Makes up for the Nicholas Cage movie 'Family Man' where he's changing his baby son's diaper and a closeup of his circumcised penis and then a 2nd shot of him urinating, squirting an arc of pee.
