Sad social commentary!

I wanted to love this movie, but I was so turned off by, first, a women putting up with abuse and not leaving immediately; second, infidelity accepted as normal; third, casual abhorance for baby in the womb with no mention that this woman seriously needs therapy. Very good acting by former "Felicity" star.

It's a chick movie 100% but I still loved it!

I'd buy it to keep. Okay, I will. I can't believe this movie is not filling up the theaters, while the big-3 sequels that are puffed up with overblown hype are still packing in people. Man, thats a shame. This movie is a gem. It does have some social problems, having a girl messing around with a married guy, she's obviously messed up in her head. But she figures it out in the end. Still, it's not for little kids. They wouldn't get the humor, nor would they make sense of the plot.
