A movie about abortion.  Lots of other things in it too, I suppose.  Still, if you ask any pro-lifer (half of them have had abortions themselves), they'll tell you it's a movie about how great abortion is.  I like how no one, no matter how reprehensible their actions, is judged unfavorably, or considered unworthy of "human," in this film.  We all make mistakes, and I like how this movie acknowledges that, and reminds us that it's okay to go on.  John Irving must have really studied the words of Jesus before writing this film.  He just might have had an abortion, too.  I don't know how a guy could have an abortion, but I suppose, if you get really attached to a nice, solid poo that's nuzzled in your small intestine, and you decide to get rid of it, prematurely, with a coat hanger, you may sort of be having an abortion.  Well, I guess, not really.  You'd just have a stinky coat hanger.  Dammit!  Why do girls get to do all the fun stuff like chop up their own babies?

I'd give it 8 Juicy squirts out of a possible 10
