For aspiring comedian Donna Stern, everyday life as a female twenty-something provides ample material for her hysterical and 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 a hilarious and totally unplanned journey of self-discovery and empowerment. Written by
Donna Stern (Jenny Slate) is a comedian. Her boyfriend Ryan breaks up with her. Her job is going away as the book store is closing down. Her best friend Nellie (Gaby Hoffmann) tries to lift her spirits. Her parents (Richard Kind, Polly Draper) are apart. After a real bad set and a drunken night, she has an ill-advised one night stand with Max (Jake Lacy).
It's a single gal comedy with a lot of inappropriate humor. It has some funny moments with one hilarious scene by the insanity of David Cross. As a rom-com, the com is great especially if you like Jenny Slate's brand of inappropriate humor. The romance needs time and space. The story doesn't allow Max to have enough time with Donna. I almost feel like the romance is coming after the movie ends. They could have a great romance but it can only really start in this story.
