one of my favorite independent comedies of the last few years. the concept is simple, the execution is tight, and the writing for donna is unapologetic. she's dynamic (a nicer way of saying "a complete mess"). the product is a concise movie that is at times harrowing (that ending...) and fuckin' hilarious due to a tight cast of comedic actors. jenny slate u r gr8
Obvious Child ist deninitiv eine Komödie und ja, sie handelt auch von einer Abtreibung. Im Herzen geht es aber um Jenny Slates wunderbare, tolle, unglaublich witzige Hauptfigur Donna! Ihre Unterhaltungen und wie sie heimtückisch von Gefühlen "überfraut" wird... die ganze Rezension sowie unsere liebsten Offbeat Romantic Comedies gibts auf der Seite unserer Videothek cinegeek.de
this had its corny moments but otherwise i think it was the best movie i've seen out of all the recent comedies that have a main character who is a slightly fucked up aimless woman in her mid-twenties who doesn't have her shit together. and i like jenny slate despite not having intended to
Ultra-hip upper middle class comedian has one night stand with good guy, aborts baby, then starts seeing him. The first world's privilege of convenience.illustrated with neglect of its absurdity. Sometimes funny, but mostly not, with tawdry potty humour at its center. 40/100 - Bad.
Some actors you'll recognize from Girls show up here to talk about how one-night stands and abortions are awkward. True, although not exactly revelatory, and there's certainly some indie pandering going on. (The father has his quirky puppet habit, she works at an oppressive anti-imperialist bookstore &c &c)
