Synopsis


Obvious Child
Adapted from Gillian Robespierre's own short film of the same name, Obvious Child stars Jenny Slate as Donna Stern, an aspiring standup comic in her late twenties who regularly performs at a Brooklyn bar on open-mic nights when there's no cover charge. As the story opens, Donna gets dumped by her boyfriend (supposedly for talking about their relationship too much in her act) and loses her day job at a bookstore that's being evicted by the owner of the building. Not long after, during a night of epic drinking, she meets Max (Jake Lacy). The two hit it off and enjoy a drunken one-night stand, which Donna slinks away from in the morning. eeks later, Donna discovers she's pregnant. Knowing she's in no way ready to be a mother, she decides to have an abortion. She tries repeatedly to tell Max what is happening, but keeps chickening out -- in part because he's such a nice guy. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    Not your average romcom

    Jenny Slate heads a fantastic cast in this sharp romantic comedy about a woman who decides to get an abortion after learning she's pregnant. It's films like this that remind you why romcoms don't need to be the braindead dreck that Hollywood churns out.

    I like that they finally made a good film about something that affects women and is only talked about without regard to the emotions a woman has to go through in order to decide what to do. Great film, beautifully acted, funny with heart.

    If you like movies that are different, then this is the one for you. More publicity would have done more than Videoeta did for this movie, That is how I found out about the film. It is really entertaining, funny and thought provoking.

    Obvious Child is a great example of a modern day romance. It's warm and funny without being sappy. It's also smart with relevant subject matter when it comes to relationships in this day and age.

    The blu-ray looks and sounds great. Jenny Slate may not have had a long career at SNL, but if this movie shows she has talent beyond that show. I look forward to her next movie.

    A smart and very funny movie! The blu-ray looks and sounds great. It also includes my favorite extra of all, a Digital HD copy (which is worth the purchase price alone!)

    I would not recommend this movie for Pro-Life people because they tell a lot of jokes about abortion. I do enjoy the relationship between the characters.

    Waste of Time

    I have no idea why this movie was getting buzz. The lead was uber annoying and unfunny. The side characters had more going on. It dragged and was without any charm or humor.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
