Soon Ruth is being offered money by both sides, to either have or abort her baby.
This is his first feature film, and it may not be fair to rate it based on his later work, but this one lacks some of the more subtle moves of those films.
One of the things I like about this movie is that Payne presents us with _sincere_ activists, who make pretty good points for both sides.
This is a great social commentary, but it made me weary at times.Published 4 months ago by Cathi Compton
I mainly bought this DVD because one of my most favorite character actresses has a part in this film, Mary Kay Place (from "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman). Read morePublished 5 months ago by Randy B Music/Film/Book Fan!
Excellent satire, clever script (of course--Jim Taylor and Alexander Payne wrote it), and a truly funny performance by Laura Dern. Read morePublished 7 months ago by William C. Stephens
Very funny (dry) slap at the pro and anti abortion zealots. Laura Dern plays the lead very accurately, not hesitating to play one side against the other.Published 9 months ago by Larry B.

This movie is probably the funniest movie ever. Even though it touches on serious issues, it throws a common sense humor in it that makes you laugh at the issue. LOVE IT!Published 20 months ago by Douglas Scyphers
