Storyline

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 A24 Films

complete waste of time
12 June 2014 | by erik-26-616472See all my reviews

The opening monologue by a comedian about the nature of her womenly parts should have been the first clue. The movie couldn't go downhill since it started at the bottom already. We gave it a solid 45 minutes before calling it quits as it really had gotten too painful to watch any more. The characters were poorly developed, apart from the heroine. The constant crude language wasn't all necessary and did not endear us to the character. Stories of youth growing up, pain in love and work, and Jewish identity have been tackled by much better films. Don't get me wrong. I'm quite open to independent films, artistic license and so on. Sorry, I failed to see the merit of the film.
