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
I can't express how much I love this film. It's funny and heartwarming and a new favorite of mine. The characters are relatable, the story is funny and captivating, the actors are truly remarkable, and the setting is amazing - New York. This film is unique in it's voice, but something we can all recognize. It has the feel of Man Up, but with a different age demographic and location. It's quirky, fun, touching, a hidden treat. Jenny Slate, is amazing in this film. She's found her voice and her niche and she shines. The supporting cast does just what you want from them. They support her without stealing the show. It's a simple, sweet story told in a truly unique way. I honestly can't say enough things, this film is remarkable!
