Obvious Child – Review

Source: Pulse Wrestling

OCRF's 16th Annual Super Saturday Hosted By Kelly Ripa And Donna Karan
Best to be avoided by pro-lifers Obvious Child will carry the label of being “that abortion comedy.” Pro-lifers will hate it because of the subject matter. Pro-choicers probably won’t go for the idea of the topic of abortion being the center issue of a comedy. Come on, people. Get your collective heads out of the sand and realize this isn’t the first time the topic has been broached in comedies. While the females of Jason Reitman’s Juno and Judd Apa ...

OCRF's 16th Annual Super Saturday Hosted By Kelly Ripa And Donna Karan
Jenny Slate, the former Saturday Night Live star and creator of popular video, Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, is having a breakout moment. As stand-up comedian Donna Stern in Obvious Child, Slate’s character bounces back from heartache the way every modern woman does: by meeting a nice, young gentleman at a bar. What comes next is worth the ticket price — and the subject of a recent censorship debate — but her initial contact wi ...

Obvious Child: Finally, the Abortion Comedy We've All Been Waiting For

Source: The Stranger

The 19th Annual Nantucket Film Festival: Sunday June 29, 2014
(Obvious Child opens at the Guild 45th today. You should also read Alison Hallett's review, because it's really good.) Life is like a box of Jenny Slate: You're probably going to hear some pee and poop jokes. I can think of a ton of comedies that skirted over abortion as a topic—Juno, Knocked Up, Junior—in order to make way for the pregnancy gags. So it's a pleasant change to watch Obvious Child, the first romantic comedy I can thin ...

Movie Review: ‘Obvious Child’

"Obvious Child" New York Special Screening - Arrivals
By Bill Wine KYW Newsradio 1060 PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There are obvious merits on display in Obvious Child, but they’re just not enough to make it the truth-telling pleasure it clearly wants to be. (2 stars out of 4) Debuting writer-director Gillian Robespierre based her romantic comedy-drama on a short film (23 minutes) with the same title that she wrote, produced, and directed in 2009.  But in fleshing it out to a nearly-four-times-as-long feature, Robespierre can’t hi ...

Are the Director and Star of "Obvious Child" Concerned About Anti-Abortion Backlash?

Source: Mother Jones

"Obvious Child" New York Special Screening - Arrivals
Obvious Child is being widely described as an "abortion comedy"—a catchy, if inadequate, designation. The movie (directed and co-written by Gillian Robespierre, and starring Saturday Night Live alum Jenny Slate) does involve abortion and funny jokes, many of which are about abortion and farting, among other topics. But Obvious Child is much more than the "abortion comedy" designation might lead you to believe. "We were confident that our take on this story was tho ...
