This movie is irresistible. I didn’t want it to be over, and I couldn’t stop smiling when it was.
It’s got a lot going for it: Smart-ass pregnant teenage girl (Ellen Page), clueless but basically decent boyfriend (Michael Cera), parents who aren’t idiots, Jennifer Garner not playing a superhero.
Snappy dialogue. Messy childbirth. Complicated moral dilemmas. Attempted suicide with red licorice.
Run don’t walk. It’s really good.
