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.

Payne's biting social satire about the abortion issue is shrewd and raucously entertaining. A smart and subversive comedy

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.

Bold drama about the dangers of zealotry.
January 1, 2000
Its weak position on the issues allowed it to throw stones at everyone and seem like it was hip to what was going on.

It's probably too schematic to reward more than a single viewing, but as a provocative one-time surprise it may become a specialized sleeper.
