Unpregnant | 2020 | PG-13 | – 5.4.5

content-ratingsWhy is “Unpregnant” rated PG-13? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “mature thematic content, sexual content, strong language and some drug references.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes several implied sex scenes between two teens leading to an unplanned pregnancy, a teen girl and a young woman kiss, and a teen undergoes an abortion procedure in a women’s health clinic; two teens steal a car and are nearly caught by police, two teens try to jump onto a train, two teens argue in several scenes and accept rides from people they do not know, and at least 1 F-word and other strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.


When a Missouri teen girl (Haley Lu Richardson) finds out that she is pregnant, she realizes that restrictions on legal abortions prevent her from scheduling a procedure in her state, and she has to plan a road trip to the nearest women’s health clinic, which is in New Mexico. Needing a ride and a companion, she has to convince an estranged childhood friend (Barbie Ferreira) to drive her there. Also with Giancarlo Esposito, Alex MacNicoll, Breckin Meyer, Sugar Lyn Beard, Denny Love, Mary McCormack and Betty Who. Directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg. A few lines of dialogue are spoken in Klingon with English subtitles. [Running Time: 1:43]

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
