More Info:
  • Alonso Duralde

    The only agenda of this scruffy and urbane comedy, about a young comic contemplating abortion, is to be true and funny.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    Despite a few too-cute moments (and many fantastically graphic vagina jokes), the movie is both smarter and more sympathetic than that glib shorthand.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Obvious Child is perfect for those who want more honesty in fiction.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    It’s an indie film about abortion that comes snuggled in the broad strokes of a quirky relationship comedy. A grump might wonder when indie films got so soft, but I’m more intrigued by the inverse: Why aren’t more studio films this clever and winning and conversant in the same language as their audience?

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    There are as many awkward, discomfiting sequences in Obvious Child as there are interludes of genuine fun and romance. The result is a movie that feels risky and forgiving and, despite its traditional rom-com contours, refreshingly new.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Sheila O'Malley

    Unlike in Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up," with a similar circumstance and where abortion is not even mentioned by name (except for the cowardly "schma-shmortion"), Obvious Child is honest.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Politics aside, Obvious Child hinges on Slate's performance, which is endearing and real.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    The real triumph of Obvious Child involves its ability to make familiar ingredients work just fine on their own terms. In doing so, it makes up for a lot of lost time in the pantheon of female-centric comedies, and studios would be wise to take note.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Ed Frankl

    This is a film of ideas, but it's a comedy first, and its boldness is that it doesn't aim to address a pro-choice or pro-life stance - it's about Donna just getting on with it all the same.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    Sharp, funny and feeling, this isn't just Juno-meets-Girls but a smart film that tackles real-life issues with rare frankness.

    Empire Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    As Obvious Child stumbles its way to the final punch line, it echoes Donna's onstage musings — funny but rough around the edges. A work in progress that somehow hooks you anyway.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    It's a well-written rom-com with rascally charm, a modest story of an awkward Brooklyn girl making a go of life. It's irreverent and rough around the edges with an imperfect protagonist, blue language, scatological humor and rambling confessional stand-up monologues, sometimes about bodily fluids. The laughs are frequent and ribald.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Often scabrously funny in a post-Lena Dunham, post-Woody Allen New York comedy vein, and finds a star performance in the thoroughly unlikely personage of Jenny Slate.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Raunchy humor laced with gradually revealed vulnerability makes for a winning combination in Obvious Child, a wildly funny and appealing female-centric comedy that launches very promising talent on both sides of the camera.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    It’s both funny and serious without trying too hard to be either, and by trying above all to be honest.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Yet the heart of the film lies in what it manages to say, without boldface or italics, about how hard it is for Donna, like so many of her anxious cohort, to make genuine connections, to break free of narcissistic constraints and become a stand-up grown-up.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    There's something old-Hollywood about Slate's dizzy-dame charm, and at the same time, something very modern about her unapologetic ownership of her own sexuality.

    Slate Full Review
  • Genevieve Koski

    Despite its attention-grabbing logline and gleeful embrace of raunchy, frequently scatological humor, Obvious Child is at heart a well-realized, straight-ahead rom-com, one with the potential to reinvigorate a genre that’s been flagging for decades.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Tomris Laffly

    Leavened by an attractive soundtrack that includes the Carter Family’s well-placed “Single Girl, Married Girl” (and the Paul Simon song that gives the film its title), Obvious Child has a loud agenda that will be off-putting to some. Still, it’s a welcome counterpoint to the likes of "Knocked Up" and even "Juno," where the abortion route is an apparent no-go.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Xan Brooks

    A glorious jumping bean comedy that moves from the profane to the poignant in the blink of an eye.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    The humor springs either from real-world recognition, as Robespierre and her co-writers go where others fear to tread, or in response to the cast’s lively, eccentrically lived-in characters.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Sorry, partisans, but there’s nothing obvious about Obvious Child.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Robespierre does a nice job of balancing the seriousness of this situation with the no-boundaries irreverence of Donna's comedy background.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    It’s a warm, sympathetic, very sloppy, and often very funny little movie about a young woman who, among several other things, is not remotely ready to be a parent and knows it.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The pregnancy monologue isn't funny at all, despite cuts to audience members laughing it up. It's a small false note in a movie that's otherwise as honest as they come.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Obvious Child is a romcom with a sting in its tail. And Slate is a dynamo, nailing every laugh while showing a true actor's gift for nuance.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    In turning a 23-minute story into an 83-minute one, Robespierre sometimes struggles to occupy her running time.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steve Macfarlane

    Whatever your foreknowledge of low-budget Brooklyn dramedies, it's impossible that Gillian Robespierre's film won't lob you at least a few curveballs.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The beauty of Obvious Child is that there’s nothing obvious about it.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    Obvious Child is well-made and wickedly bold, but I still found myself wishing for a little more subtle maturity on the part of its characters and creators.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Not all of the stand-up scenes in Obvious Child are quite as funny. At least one is meant to be bad. Another is meant to be poignant but just ends up coming off as a touch weird and emotionally false.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Laughter may be the best medicine, but in Obvious Child, it’s also a helluva cure for dealing with a serious topic.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kate Taylor

    In truth, despite its honesty, this is a flawed little film, its low comedy never funny enough to justify its crudeness.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    The problem is the movie's comedians, who are, to the last, unfunny.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    No, this film by director/co-writer Gillian Robespierre just isn’t funny, and the mismatched leads aren’t even interesting together.
