Pointed social commentary shines through in this uneven but amusing pregnancy farce.
[It's] constructed exactly like a middlebrow studio comedy but lacking the directorial verve that might make it play like one.
Los Angeles Times:
For all the implausible, coincidental and slapstick moments, there's a caustic veracity and trenchant social commentary in "Preggoland" that rings particularly true ...
New York Times:
The movie's flaw is that it mixes tones. Ruth, her relatives and her fellow workers are realistically played, but her gal-pal buddies are caricatures.
Globe and Mail:
Preggoland feels like a rough cut of a Judd Apatow movie, similarly pushing the taste envelope in cringe-worthy directions before wrapping up with a rom-com bow.
Bennett creates a memorable character in feisty Ruth and there's enough comedy and redemption to make Preggoland an enjoyable romp.
Let's not belabour this. Preggoland is a misguided comedy about a thirtysomething woman who pretends to be pregnant on a whim.
There's satiric comedy to be mined from the conflicting messages society still sends about pregnancy, motherhood, and women's worth, but the script isn't smart enough to explore them.
