Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

Framed as a video from a mother to her child, Quentin Lee’s comedy traces one young woman’s transformation from self-described slut to responsible parent. Finding herself pregnant, Angela (Cheung) enlists the help of her gay BFF (Cruz) in tracking down the father from a list of colorfully nicknamed past partners (e.g., “Five-Second Guy”). The gallery of eccentric ex-lovers provides a few yuks, but the fact that the film’s trajectory sees going from sexuality-owning independence to conventional respectability as a quantum leap is remarkably depressing, even if Angela’s final resolve complicates such an easy progression.—Andrew Schenker
