Since when did abortion rights become funny? First-time director Payne mines the sacrosanct issue with hilarious results in this daring, vicious comedy. Dern is a skanky tour de force as the childish, selfish glue sniffer reluctantly caught in the middle of the abortion fray. Sadly ignored at the cineplex and at Oscar time, this smart satire is sure to inspire post-viewing debate.
