The new trailer for Obvious Child — starring Jenny Slate and Jake Lacy of The Office fame — doesn’t shy away from the signs that it’s a comedy. Farting? Check. Stand-up sets? Check. Bad break-ups and silly dates? Check and check.
Unplanned pregnancy and abortion? Those too. (And yes, it’s still a romantic comedy — not an advocacy film.)
Slate plays Donna, a New York comedian struggling with her career, her relationships, her family and pretty much everything else. When she meets Max, played by Lacy, it seems like he might take her mind off things — until their fun night has some major consequences. The movie also stars Gaby Hoffman, Polly Draper, Richard Kind and David Cross, to add to the comedy checklist, and arrives in select theaters June 6.
