The buddy road trip film has taken many forms over the years, but whether it be Planes, Trains and Automobiles or Green Book, characters sharing the same car on a cross-country trip always provides an intimate experience filled with mishaps and unexpected pit stops. Rachel Lee Goldenberg’s Unpregnant does this by giving an often taboo topic a fun, fresh coat of paint. Movies like Never Rarely Sometimes Always and Little Woods have illustrated the far lengths women seeking abortions must go, but oh so somberly. HBOMax’s latest original and adaptation of the book by Ted Caplan and Jenni Hendriks is very much an attempt at Thelma & Louise meets Booksmart.
