Did You Know?


Teri Garr (Suze) played Lisa Kudrow's (Leslie) birth mother on the sitcom Friends (1994-2004). See more »


The US Army (and the Reserve Component of each branch of the US Military) actually has a mechanism in place to prevent the problem Leslie faces in the film. Leslie states that her husband is deployed with the Army National Guard (a Reserve Component of the US Army) and that if she does not return to work soon, her children will lose their health insurance. Part of her husband's mobilization training would have included a briefing for the unit's spouses on the benefits they (and their children) would be entitled to while their Soldiers were deployed, including enrollment in the (free) military family health insurance program Tricare. Even if Leslie chose not to attend the briefing, her husband would have been aware of the availability of Tricare to her and the children (and would have told her about it). Even if by some calamity he didn't tell her about Tricare, someone from the unit's family support organization (the Family Readiness Group) would have told Leslie about the availability of Tricare.

Thoughtful, funny, surprisingly simple film
17 October 2007 | by laurie-223See all my reviews

Saw Kabluey at the Austin Film Festival last eve, and walked out loving the film. Logically, I know it shouldn't be surprising to see a low-budget film capture characters that are so real, and yet do parody and comedy so well. Kids sitting behind me laughed at all the same spots I did. It manages to stay in the realm of indy-odd, but deliver a well-crafted plot line, and characters that you love. A sprinkling of well recognized actors who give great performances...loved Conchata Ferrell. Scott Pendergrass holds it together through the entire film.

Scott Pendergrass afterward said there might be an announcement coming next week at the Hamptons festival, so hopefully it will sign a distribution deal. This film deserves to be widely seen.
