Highly Recommend
29 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll start by saying I am a woman, and I am pro-life, but I really really liked this film a lot. The main character is quirky, funny, and yet awkward at times...but totally endearing and lovable. You want to root for her. You want to be on her side. She was crass and crude at times, yet I never got the feeling she did this for attention - it was more to speak her authentic truth. Yes, part of this movie is about abortion, but it shows sides of it that many never see and movies certainly don't depict, which is what makes is so "real" and so good.

I thought Slate did an amazing job in this role, and the supporting cast was amazing too...from her family members, to her co-workers, to her love interest. I loved her leading male in this movie and wanted things to work out for them (you'll have to watch the movie to find out).

Overall, I thought this movie was very well done. It will make you laugh, yet tug at your heart strings as well.
