Storyline

Jesse is nine months pregnant and lives with her underemployed husband Hank in a dilapidated mobile home in a rusty trailer park. During an afternoon of talk, Jesse discovers that Hank has been spending time with Bonnie, their young, bovine neighbor. Jesse is hurt and furious, and Hank is defensive, claiming that the baby has pushed him out. While Hank is elsewhere, the other woman pays a surprise visit to Jesse. Healing begins, and when Jesse's labor starts, it's Bonnie who comes to the rescue. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great Movie, PLUS!
18 October 2009 | by obceanSee all my reviews

I did enjoy this movie and yes it's a great date movie. The sound track is great (Willie Dixon)which was nominated for a Grammy! It's a story of a man and his pregnant wife, played by Dana Anderson living in a trailer park. The wife discovers that the husband has been spending time with their young neighbor (Yeardley Smith). It does have one scene that sets it apart from all others. YEARDLEY SMITH (voice of Lisa Simpson) is shown nude. this is the ONLY nude scene she has ever done. When I saw it, I was SHOCKED! Although the movie was enjoyable, it was edged in my memory because I discovered that Yeardley (always in homely roles) is actually quite attractive! I've never seen her the same away again, meow!
