For aspiring comedian Donna Stern, everyday life as a female twenty-something provides ample material for her relatable brand of humor. On stage, Donna is unapologetically herself, joking about topics as intimate as her sex life and as crude as her day-old underwear. But when Donna winds up unexpectedly pregnant after a one-night stand, she is forced to face the uncomfortable realities of independent womanhood for the first time. Donna's drunken hookup - and epic lapse in prophylactic judgment - turns out to be the beginning of an unplanned journey of self-discovery and empowerment. Written by
Forget the moral messages ..enjoy the talent and wit
Obvious Child delivered 84 minutes of witty dialogue , excellent performance (Jenny Slate)and humor mixed with light drama . It's ingenuity forces the viewer to feel the attractiveness of the actors even when conventional beauty is scarce . There are no super models in Obvious Child , no flashy implants , and no forced nudity , but the movie draws a constant smile on your face from beginning to end credits.I'm no big fan of rom-coms but this movie changed my mind. Yes a lot will discuss the morals of the movie (abortion) and take sides (with or against) but the value of this movie , in my humble opinion, is outside that debate . its fun and warm and deserves a double watching experience .did I say that Jenny Slate was wonderful ?
