A must see!

By MovieFan116
Really funny and fun movie, great for a date night or with friends. Jenny is hilarious!...

For once a movie that gets it right!

Finally a movie that delivers a truthful tale about pregnancy and abortion. This movie should have come out 20 years ago, but no one had the guts to write it or star in it. I can't praise this...

A Must See!!!

Not only is Obvious Child hilarious, but it also nails what it's like to be a woman in your mid to late twenties now. Jenny Slate is a real hero!...

Obvious Child was such a great movie. It was funny at all the right places and then became very serious and real at others. Jenny Slate is amazing in this movie and the supporting cast is brilliant....
