Movie Review: BABES

Movie Review: BABES


Director: Pamela Adlon
Starring: Ilana Glazer, Michelle Buteau, Hasan Minhaj, John Carroll Lynch, Stephan James, Oliver Platt, Sandra Bernhard

There are plenty of movies out there that paint parenthood and motherhood with rose-colored glasses with the joy and beauty that comes with a newborn. The new film Babes takes the audience on a different, but realistic, look at this precious time. People probably know Ilana Glazer best from her hit TV series Broad City. She’s co-written Babes with Josh Rabinowitz and stars in as Eden who is celebrating her friend Dawn (Buteau) who is about to give birth to her second child. They’re the kind of friends who tell each other everything from the mundane to the gross out facts about their bodily fluids. They spend Thanksgiving doing their annual tradition of going to a movie only to have Dawn’s water break that evening. Later on, Eden finds herself in a meet cute on a train with an actor named Claude (James). They eventually have a one night stand, and now, Eden finds herself unexpectedly pregnant. If Dawn has her life together with her husband and works a steady job as a dentist, Eden is quite the opposite. She’s the friend we all know whose life is a bit messy and will be in a for a rude awakening of what it means to be a single parent. The film also stars Hasan Minaj as Dawn’s husband, Marty.
