WOMP WOMP When the most romantic day of the year turns into the worst day of her life

Details Limited Release: Jun 06, 2014; Length: 83 Minutes; Genres: Comedy, Romance; With: David Cross, Gaby Hoffmann and Jenny Slate; Distributor: A24 Films

In an indie that drew raves at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Saturday Night Live alum Jenny Slate plays a twentysomething comedian who, in rapid succession, endures a breakup, gets fired, has a one-night stand with a guy (Jake Lacy), and learns she's pregnant — all in time for what's supposed to be the most romantic day of the year. ''It's a very exaggerated version of the way Valentine's Day can go,'' says Slate. ''[But] every woman dreams of a partner who would support her in everything that is trying or new or scary.'' Sounds pretty romantic after all.
