Preggoland tells the story of Ruth, a 35-year-old woman who pretends to be pregnant to fit in with her friends. Although Ruth initially tries to come clean, the perks of pregnancy are too seductive to ignore and she soon finds herself living a lie. Starring Sonja Bennett (who also wrote the script), James Caan and Danny Trejo and directed by Jacob Tierney (The Trotsky), Preggoland is a comedy that looks at the lengths we will go just to feel special.

I saw this movie at the Cleveland Film Festival. This is probably one of the best comedies I have seen in years. Sonja Bennett is a remarkable talent. Not only did she write a great script which keeps the laughs coming on a regular basis, her comic timing, mannerisms, facial expressions, etc. as the lead actress are exceptional. Supporting performances by Danny Trejo and Paul Campbell also were terrific as were the performances by her preggo loving/mommy obsessed friends. I laughed so hard during this film, I had tears running down my face. . . Despite the lead characters absurd antics, you can't help relating to her and rooting for her every bit of the way. I couldn't imagine how they would end this film given all the crazy shenanigans and they did just a fabulous job (no spoilers here). This film is wickedly funny while always staying classy. I highly recommend this film to anyone who loves to laugh.
