Honest and personal, but something feels just a bit off.

Dreckige Witze

Gillian Robespierres Debüt startete in den USA mit einem gewaltigen Sundance Hype im Rücken und dem Trumpf, dass es die erste Abtreibungs-Komödie ist. Allerdings führt uns das ein bisschen in die falsche Richtung: 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... Obvious Child ist ein Wirbelwind von Film! Er handelt von einer blockierten Entwicklung und der Notwendigkeit, erwachsen zu werden. Obvious Child will von Donna, dass sie Verantwortung übernimmt, für das, was sie eigentlich ist! Am Valentinstag wird Donna Stern von ihrem Freund verlassen, nachdem er mit ihrer …

An 'Obvious' Recommendation

Snoogans - wrote on 07/28/2014

I hesitate to label 'Obvious Child' as a 'romantic comedy'. The story is one that seems to fit into that category, but the film tells it in such a way that completely deviates from the typical formula. The characters are often relatable and the outcome of the situations lean in slight towards realism. Natural awkwardness shines through Jenny Slate's performance. I laughed along with her and understood her pains. The comedy comes out of the dramatic situations, much like how Slate's character gets her stand-up routines from events in her personal life. The jokes are a mixed bag. I didn't laugh much at the few stand-up segments, but I did enjoy some unexpected humor amongst the quieter moments. I like the route this story takes.

Not So Obvious Pick

Allison - wrote on 06/12/2014

Saw it for free, which really is the only way to catch it. Jenny Slate is not the typical leading lady and really I'd be surprised if I saw any film with her in it again. She wasn't horrible, but not that great either. The jokes were sometimes funny, but relied on a lot of humor related to bodily functions. Overall, not very interested in it. Almost worth it to watch , but only because it was free. I might see another film by Gillian Robespierre if she gets better actors. Also Jenny Slate and her BFF looked too similar to each other. Would have worked if they were sisters. The mother character was semi-good. Thankfully the focus wasn't on the abortion, but that's where the story was heading. Better luck next time for everyone involved in this film. 5.5/10
