    I've always thought Jenny Slate hilarious, but Obvious Child shows she has a lot more range than I would have thought. She plays a stand-up comic whose life is falling apart and who must face adulthood when surprised by an unwanted pregnancy. This self-aware rom-com has some genuinely funny moments, but also isn't afraid to dwell on drama, making for a grounded film where some of the characters just happen to be funny, perhaps to keep the darkness at bay. Most characters pale compared to Slate's performance, and they do feel real, not overwritten, their performances most subtle than films like this usually allow. Off-color and in some ways controversial, Obvious Child somehow manages to register as sweet and charming in the end. 4 years 6 months ago
