This movie has all of the one-sided pro-life Christian arguments that one would expect it to have from it's title; and likewise only has the standard stereotypical strawman arguments representing pro-choice positions. (and guilt. so much guilt for sex outside of marriage, and for women who chose to have an abortion) It also has not a speck of understanding of the concept that most Americans find abortion to be a very complicated issue, full of shades of grey and difficult, challenging, life altering decisions. Rather than having an honest discussion of the pros-vs-cons of abortion in a realistic manner, cliche, after cliche about how "Trusting in God will make everything work out" is thrown at the audience. Which if you are this movies target audience (such as the folk who wrote the more positive reviews of this film) will likely be all you want from this movie. If for whatever reason you seek to watch this movie for other reasons.... (my GF and I watched it with a glass of wine, hoping for a good laugh) Be prepared to be disappointed. It's boring, poorly paced, and not even cringy in the "So bad it's good" kind of way. More the kind of movie that anyone outside of the target audience will have any real reason to value it, or the arguments within. Some enjoyment of the movie can be made if one has a sufficiently large amount of alcohol, and a few friends, but other than making a drinking game about christian fundamentalist pro-life arguments (take a sip every time they remind you that FETUS is a BABY) Not much to be had here. Honestly, it's not the worst drinking game movie I've watched, but it's only "meh" on that account as well.
