UNPREGNANT is a comedy streaming on HBO Max 17-year-old girl and her estranged best friend as they road trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico so she can get an abortion without her parents knowing.
Streaming on HBO Max, the movie opens with 17-year-old Veronica using a pregnancy test in a school bathroom in Missouri. Veronica tries to recount the night she could’ve gotten pregnant, but she’s sure her boyfriend, Kevin, used a condom. Either way, she anxiously prepares herself for the two-minute wait to find out if she’s pregnant.
When Veronica hears someone walk in the bathroom, she accidently drops the pregnancy test on the floor outside the stall, and a girl picks it up. Veronica realizes the girl in the bathroom is her estranged best friend, Bailey, and tries to not say anything while Bailey talks to her. When Veronica says Bailey can leave, Bailey realizes it’s Veronica in the stall and jumps to see over the top, which makes Veronica come out of the stall.
When Veronica gets the test back from Bailey, it reveals that she’s pregnant. Veronica and Bailey talk about it for a second. However, when another girl enters, Bailey stuffs the test into her pocket and walks out of the bathroom.
Veronica and Bailey meet up after lunch as Veronica wants her test back, but Bailey had already thrown it out in the dumpster out back. However, at the end of the school day, the recycling club finds the test, and everyone at school now knows someone is with child.
Cut to Veronica’s house. Being pregnant is upsetting Veornica’s plans to attend an Ivy League college in the fall. So, she calls a local abortion clinic to see if she can get the procedure done without her parents’ consent. The clinic tells her she can’t in Missouri, and the closest clinic that performs abortions without parental consent is in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Veronica makes the perfect plan to get there in a weekend and back without her parents knowing. She goes to see some other friends to let them in on her plan.
When Veronica arrives, though, her friends are in stalking mode to find out who’s pregnant, while also judging the unknown mother. Veronica decides not to tell them, and instead texts Kevin to make plans to tell him. When Veronica tells Kevin, he proposes marriage to her so she can keep the baby, but Veronica isn’t sure.
It’s now late, and Veronica heads to Bailey’s house. Veronica tells Bailey what’s happening and enlists her to go to New Mexico with her to kill her baby. Bailey agrees, and the two start the long journey from Missouri to New Mexico, not knowing what the trip will bring them.
UNPREGNANT has its comical moments, but eventually the situations in which the girls find themselves get so outrageous and unbelievable that most viewers will wonder what the blazes they’re watching. Both Haley Lu Richardson and Barbie Ferreira do great jobs in their roles, but it’s not enough to bring the movie together. Furthermore, the process of Richardson’s character getting an abortion is made to seem like a glamorous experience, which isn’t exactly how it goes.
