Storyline

Jesse is nine months pregnant and lives with her underemployed husband Hank in a dilapidated mobile home in a rusty trailer park. During an afternoon of talk, Jesse discovers that Hank has been spending time with Bonnie, their young, bovine neighbor. Jesse is hurt and furious, and Hank is defensive, claiming that the baby has pushed him out. While Hank is elsewhere, the other woman pays a surprise visit to Jesse. Healing begins, and when Jesse's labor starts, it's Bonnie who comes to the rescue. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A minor classic. A picaresque. A romantic comedy with people you'll like. Theater - made into a film, seamlessly. Nicely structured.

The first shot is brilliant. The verdant green, a pan, and then, what's this? The intrusion of civilization? And the shot plays on to it's logical conclusion, kicking off the film perfectly.

Alright they want more, but the poetry of the first shot must remain with the film, and not the reviewer. The acting throughout is the high professional standards we come to expect. Production wise, fairly good maximization of a very limited budget, which of course both ties into and rationalizes the minimal sets and moving around - like Hurlyburly, this is a one location flick.

10 on a get laid date movie. Saw it theatrically, do not know if it is out on DVD
