By roswellxavier
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....

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!...
