Reviewer Finds Softly Pro-Life Films Too "Cutesy" and Filled With "Consoling Fictions"

Apparenty it's unrealistic that women ever take unwanted pregnancies to term.

Given the current climate, sure, that's probably not the most frequently taken path. But then reviewers go all goofy for quirky independent films where decidedly more marginal choices are made -- like a guy who devotes his life to having sex with his Real Doll. Those odd choices are celebrated by reviewers as opening our eyes to a world of possibilities.

Giving birth to an unplanned child, though? Dude, how absurd. Let's not bother making movies about such bizarre and unrealistic people.

We need movies that really speak to the heart of the experience of life, like Gay Cowboys Eating Pudding. Such stories have a potent resonance for all of us.
