Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Uncharacteristically of Payne, the film lacks a sharp point of view, unfloding as a series of gigs (some quite funny), trying to be too fair--for a satire--to both sides of the abortion issue."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Payne's biting social satire about the abortion issue is shrewd and raucously entertaining. A smart and subversive comedy"
‑ Frank Ochieng,
"Bold drama about the dangers of zealotry."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Wicked comedy about abortion conflict. Dern is terrific."
‑ Brandon Judell, PopcornQ
"Worst of all is Dern, who is so gratingly offensive that by the end of the movie you really just want her to shut up more than anything else."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Its weak position on the issues allowed it to throw stones at everyone and seem like it was hip to what was going on."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Payne didn't hit his stride until Election, but this is a good film."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"An auspicious debut for director Payne that did more than hint at teh great things to come."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
