When I am happy I feel like crying, but when I am sad I don’t feel like laughing. I think it is better to be happy; then you get two feelings for the price of one.

Lily Tomlin’s ‘Grandma’ is the latest “abortion comedy” to get the issue totally right 

“Abortion comedy” feels like a recipe for disaster: How can one make jokes out of such a difficult decision? Even if it were possible, it surely wouldn’t be socially responsible. Yet what makes Grandma so great is how deftly it makes the situation funny without making abortion a joke. It’s often light, but lets darker moments be dark. The film’s tone glides through transitions smoothly and organically. It follows one of last year’s most underrated movies.
